    Jeff Keppinger

    Why isn't he on the major league club? He is batting .372 in Louisville and he seems to have good plate discipline.

    Because Juan Castro is better in every aspect of the game.

    Slap hitters don't get much attention. His Isolated slugging percentage is .075, and to be honest, even for a middle infielder that is real low. Toss in the fact that BP plays his position and the Reds have some thing for 'Hands of old Gold' there is no need for him.

    Mystery is how anybody could ever have thought he was an upgrade from B. Harris, who does have some power.

    Another thought: seems to me it's about time for a promotion to AAA of Drew Anderson. .299/.353/.489/.842. Let's see if he can make the next step.

    Still better than Castro and Keppinger can play any IF spot so he can give any of the infielders a day off. Personally I would rather want a slap hitting infielder than one who swings for the fences and strikes out a lot.

    Castro swings for the fences?

    He can't even see the fence.
