    2006 Chattanooga roster released(Gardner and Pauly on roster)

    Good to see Richie and Pauly back. Hopefully they can stay healthy and regain their stuff that made them top prospects back in 2004. The Lookout rotations looks like it will shape up to be: Richie Gardner, Travis Chick, Thomas Pauly, Phil Dumatrait, and Calvin Medlock.

    posted March 28, 2006

    Although the opening day roster for the 2006 Lookouts may not be complete until the last day of spring training, it appears that the team will be a mixture of returning players and players that spent the 2005 season playing for the Reds high-A Sarasota team.

    Stephen Smitherman was listed for Chattanooga but was released Monday by Cincinnati. Smitherman saw little action in spring training due to physical problems.

    Three players are in Baseball America’s list of top ten prospects for Cincinnati: Miguel Perez (catcher), Joey Votto (first base), and Travis Chick (RHP.

    That's a pretty old AA team. Yet another indication of the state of this organization.

    There's a zillion pitchers on that roster. They won't all be active. I wouldn't be surprised if Gardner and Pauly both start out on the DL. My prediction for Chatt's April rotation:

    Dumatrait, Valdez, Paduch, Medlock, Chick

    Personally, I'm interested to see how Calvin Medlock responds to his first action in Chattanooga. He's only 23, so I imagine we're still at least a year removed from seeing his first "cup" in the show, but it'd be good to see him hit the ground running in AA anyway.

    He's a prospect flying a bit under the radar right now (not in the BA Top 10), so anything that he develops into has to be seen as a big win for the Reds.

    I'm surprised they brought Rick Asadoorian back. They failed to promote Ryan Hanigan, David Shafer, Jeff Bruksch, Jeremy Schmidt, or Phil Dumatrait to AAA. Hanigan and Dumatrait earned it, too.

    But Chris Dickerson, Carlos Guevara, Jim Paduch, Danny Tiburcio, Luis Bolivar, Jeff Urgelles and Calvin Medlock get the bump, Miguel Perez and Travis Chick are where they should be and Brock Till and has 98-mph fastball get kept. Kyle Edens and Erik Lohse staying are other minor surprises.

    I'm also happy to see Tyler Pelland and Homer Bailey not on this list. I hope BJ Szymanski joins it as soon as possible.

    I am interested in keeping up with Javon Moran this season. He is a bit old at 23, but then again if he continues to produce he might find himself in AAA something this season.

    Old indeed. I don't think of mid-20 somethings as being the guys upon which a foundation is built, in AA anyway.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    23 isn't old for AA. Not even in the Reds' system. That's an average age for a prospect at that level.

    23 is mid 20's?

    does that mean 38 is early 40's? cuz if it does, I'm going to be depressed in about a month and a half.

    Its certainly not ancient (I am assuming he'll be 24 this year) but he is no spring chicken for that level either ... I guess what I am saying is that it doesn't scream "sure thing" the way you'd like to have a few guys doing (like Encarnacion did). That's OK to, there are lots of "maybes" that turn out to be very good players.

    If he tears it up in AA, they will likely move him to AAA this year and I'd be plenty happy with that progression.

    Moran was drafted out of college, so this is only his third full pro season plus the half-season post-draft.

    He won't be 24 until September 30th.

    Wayne's a relief pitcher and has been in the minors for six years. Originally drafted by the Red Sox and most recently with the Cardinals.
