    This shows how the organization has a flawed value system:

    ---
    C
    Miguel Perez
    Dane Sardinha
    Craig Tatum
    Justin Tordi
    John Purdom
    Javier Rumbos
    ---

    Four Banjo Bats ahead of Purdom, the college FA who hit .277/.366/.355 at Dayton last year. That line is no great shakes, but it's better than what any of those other four did at their respective levels.

    Well I still don't understand why you think that promoting Bailey is a good idea, I would want to keep making the old regime look bad.

    So, you're going to use the one, if not the only, useful player in the Reds minor league system to prove a point?

    Brilliant!

    Well if you by only pure statistics to evaluate a player, which many people do around here, he isn't that good anyway. I think he has more potential than his numbers show but things can happen. If I was Castellini I would stay far away from making O'Brien look even half way intelligent.

    Who cares what the old regime did any more? It's irrelevant, it's time to look ahead. I don't care if Bailey makes O'Brien look like a genius, and I doubt the current front office does either.

    The Reds could make Bailey the Opening Day starter and he could throw a no-hitter and O'Brien still wouldn't look half way intelligent.

    Castellini gave O'Brien the ultimate "You're a blathering idiot" award by firing him less than a week into his tenure as owner.There's no need to "prove a point" about O'Brien -- he did that himself with names like Milton, Ortiz, Aurillia, Williams, Womack, Ramirez, Hancock and Machado.

    Castellini's #1 priority with owning the Reds is to field a competitive ballclub and make money. Settling vendettas or making individual people look bad in the process is probably #235,343 on the list, falling slightly ahead of "investigating cost savings involved in switching from 2 ply to 1 ply in visitors clubhouse" and "wondering if he left the iron plugged in." It would be phenomenolly stupid not to use every asset in his possession, especially considering the overall lack of assets in the farm system and beyond for this fanchise. Castellini wouldn't be able to manage a produce stand in Finley Market, much less a successful produce corporation and major league baseball stadium, if he let such pettineess get in the way of success.

    Besides, Homer Bailey succeeding would validate Castellini and Krivsky's player development strategy just as much as it would Dan O'Brien's drafting.

    Interesting that Medlock's down at #28. A good run in AA and BA's got some 'splainin' to do.

    Good answer, it was what I was looking for. I just was seeing what others were thinking... I still think it doesnt make much sense to send him to Chattanooga to start the season. Put the kid in Sarasota. If he pitches well, promote him after May if you are wanting to move him up. Then see how he does, but why rush him and skip a level when he showed in Dayton that he does need work with pitches and command?

    Doc, I think Medlock should be higher than 28, thats for sure. I think he will have some success at Chattanooga this season. Only time will tell, but I expect a sub 4.00 ERA out of him this season.

    It's interesting that Mike Burns one of our waiver claims is listed as our 27th best prospect.

    He's been able to make guys miss so far and the Southern League is pitcher friendly. IMO his chances are pretty good.

    Medlock's a better prospect than Steve Kelly and Kelly did awfully well in Chattanooga.
