    Here it is, from May 16th and John Fay.

    Majewski update

    The Louisville Bats reinstated relief pitcher Gary Majewski from the temporarily inactive list Tuesday following the death of his sister.
    On Wednesday, the right-hander made his first appearance since May 1. He allowed one hit, walked one and struck out one over a scoreless inning.
    Majewski rejoined the team last week, but experienced a slight shoulder strain while throwing on the side.
    "He probably rushed it trying to come back," Reds GM Wayne Krivsky said. "It wasn't a DL situation. He's fine
    ."
    "The guy I think could be really good in center is Adam Dunn. If someone asked me if Dunn could be a center fielder for the next 10 years, if he started working on it, no one could explain to me why he couldn’t do it." - Brad Kullman

    After Votto's 2-for-4 day, he is now hitting .299/.415/.474 - .889 OPS including a line of .408/.489/.605 in May. He's been incredible since his early struggles in May. The Reds need to call him up very soon, IMO.

    I'd love to see Votto get a shot soon. I have a feeling we'll have to wait until July or August though.

    BJ Szymanski sighting: he rips a two-run triple to give Sarasota a 3-0 lead. Logan Ondrusek pitching for the S-Reds.

    I'm intrigued by Logan Ondrusek. He is a groundball pitcher that obviously keeps the ball in the yard (only one homerun allowed in 41.1 innings this year). At a 6'7" and 210 pounds, he has a projectible body that could allow him to add a few more mph to his fastball down the road.

    Jay Bruce rips his 15th double of the year to drive in DeJesus, who singled to leadoff the inning. 4-0 Sarasota in the third inning. Jay is 1-for-2.

    Kainer 1-2 now and lowers his average to .545.

    Cut him.

    It would certainly make the Reds more interesting to watch and I'm sure he could put up comparable numbers to "conehat".

    Agreed, although the Reds have to move Hatteberg before they bring up Votto. Bringing up Joey and making Scott a wounded duck would diminsh whatever trade value he has right now.

    Yup. I have plans to go to Cincy for the June 16th and 17th games against the Rangers next month. I'm hoping Votto will be up by then so that I can watch him play. If not by then, I have plans to go to a three game series in August. My hope is that Votto, Bailey, EdE, McBeth, Medlock, and Bray will all be up by then. Losing always sucks, but it's at least more enjoyable to watch when the young guys with big futures are playing.

    Szymanski belts a 2-run HR to give Sarasota a 6-0 lead after 4. Szymanski is just a double and single short of the cycle.

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.
