    I'm excited about the future of actual prospects Trammell, Siri, and Friedl.
    Ervin has also hit a little in the bigs and last year in AAA.

    Taking all of that into account, I still believe Schebler will start to hit and be a valuable piece on the Reds bench in a month or so.
    The rest of those guys are playing for possible spots next year or fill ins if the Reds have a rash of injuries.
    If I'm wrong, I only hope it's because they all succeed and some of those guys manage to outshine Scott.
    There are plenty of teams that can use a career .760 bat on their bench.
    I'm pretty sure Dietrich wasn't that high going into this year.
    I'm not certain Schebler can succeed in a bench role. He'll need regular ABs to keep him out of a funk. Adam Duvall had better numbers in his career through age 28 (Schebler's age) and now he's done. I think this is Schebler's fate too.

    I just don't get it.

    It's the shift that triggered the downhill spiral. Yet it seems like it's the big elephant in the room. No one wants to address it.

    "Must be his confidence."

    "Maybe it's his bat speed."

    "No no... it's his launch angle."


    "Maybe it's his batting gloves? Or perhaps his walk-up music. Yeah that must be it."

    "Maybe it's Maybelline?"

    No wait, I know... "it's just a small sample size."

    "He just needs to get his swagger back. He's over thinking it."

    So anyway... I wonder what happened to Schebler? He used to be pretty good. Baffling and totally out of nowhere. I guess it'll always be a mystery. Hopefully he gets his swagger back in AAA, I'm sure that's all it is.

    yes he is improving steadily, if he continues this uphill slope he has a chance to be the next Buddy Bradford

    Other factors that should make AAA pitching easier to hit aside, do they do all of this shifting in the minors? That would seem to have a huge impact on what can be discerned from his AAA statistics.

    I watched two of the games and Syracuse WAS shifting. They kept the pitcher, catcher and 1st baseman out (in case of a dropped third strike) and the rest played cards out behind second base.

    Seems like the big league clubs would order the AAA teams to play the shift.

    Schebler joined an improv team? Good for him. The baseball stuff didn't seem like it was panning out.
