    Re: curious on deno...

    Well, I am definitely not the expert, but living in Louisville, I have seen him play 3 times this year. From what I have seen (and read) I would say:

    Range: Deno
    Outfield Coverage (Speed): Deno
    Arm: Kearns
    Hit for Average: Deno
    Hit for Power: Kearns
    Basepath Speed: Deno


    That about covers what little knowledge that I have. Hope that helps.

    A great arm is useless without accuracy... which has been part of kearns problem this season. I trust Krinsky's judgment of players talent and he thinks he is ready to be the primary rightfielder.

    "It's his time," GM Wayne Krivsky said. "We think he's ready."

    I think it started because there were a bunch of people saying Deno should be up here because he can do a lot of things at an above average level. So it basically got carried away that Deno could do everything, hit, field, pitch, be the entire bullpen....

    I have to question whether his MLB ability actually is proven being that he has yet to play a full season. I'd like to see just that before i call him proven.

    To Kearns defense, he threw a runner out at home tonight from CF on a very nice one hopper. Lopez also commited his 15th error of the season.

    I haven't been around here long, but I don't think any of it has anything to do with Deno's opinion of himself or his attitude. It's kind of like a cult following he has though, I'm a fan of the show 24 and people do the same type of thing with that show's character, like the top 1000 Chris Denorfia facts and things like that. It's pretty funny I think.

    There...fixed it for ya
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Deno has a pretty good arm though, IIRC he was rated by BA with the best arm in the minor league system pre-Bruce.

    That is correct, although when he got that honor, they couldnt spell his name correctly. The spelled it Donorfia.
