    5-8 minor league updates

    Homer Bailey pitching for Sarasota

    Johnny Cueto, who has arguably been the most impressive Reds prospect this year, is pitching for Dayton.

    Good night for pitching prospects huh?

    I am burning DVDs right now so I dont want to stream the internet feed of the Dayton game just yet. Lets hope our boys top to bottom can pull out some wins tonight.

    Cody Ross has slammed a first-inning homer. Bats up 1-0.

    Of course Cueto gives up a HR as soon as I praise him. He retired the first two hitters before allowing a single and 2-run HR. He K'd the next batter.

    Brandon Roberts led off the game with a single for Sarasota, then stole his 16th base of the season. He later scored on a Cody Strait single. Sarasota up 1-0 after half an inning. Bailey to take the mound.

    Janish with a double, and then Bruce hits a homer to tie it.

    Same thing happened earlier this year when I started praising how Adam Rosales was picking up right where he left off....then he went out and just couldnt get the hits to fall for him. Still wonder how long he was hurting before he said something though?

    Jay Bruce is an absolute stud. I put him in the Adam Dunn/Austin Kearns class of outfield prospects. Hopefully he will be playing along side those two guys within the next 2-3 years.

    Ya know, I think he is already playing better than what Kearns was doing when he was 19 and in the Midwest league. Kearns only had 13 home runs his first time through the leage at 19....he of course tore through the league as a 20 year old. Heck Dunn hit only 11, he played in about 25 fewer games than did Kearns though.

    What's scary about Bruce, though, is he is still listed at 6'3" and 195 pounds. He still has plenty of room to fill out, and of course more power will come with that.

    Louisville still up 1-0 in the second inning.

    Dayton up 3-2 after 1 thanks to Jay Bruce and Eric Eymann HR's

    Pelland hit the first batter and walked the second but got a strikeout, flyout, and groundout to get out of the first inning.
