It's good to see guys move up as they are expected to do and when their talent dictates rather than some arbitrary 'year by year' thing.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13, 15
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

I came on here just to see if this happened yet. I'm excited.
Good news all around.
Gardner and Medlock are going to Louisville.
Fantastic news all around. It will definitely be interesting to see what Bruce and Cueto can do in the Southern League. If they start destroying that league, then I can imagine there will be some fan/media pressure out there to call them up to the Reds (I won't agree with that, but I can see it happening).
Excellent news! Richie's been on fire lately, and hopefully he can keep it up in Louisville.Gardner and Medlock are going to Louisville.
If Medlock does well in Louisville, I wouldn't mind him later on this season up in the Reds bullpen, even if it's only in a September callup.
The Lost Decade Average Season: 74-88
2014-16 Average Season: 69-93
Who loses their jobs in Louisville? Cutting some of the aging chaff?
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.
Ricky henderson has a higher OBP than C. patterson and he's retired. C. Trent 6-14-2008
It's about time Medlock got the call. He really should've started the year in Louisville.
Really Good news for all. I'm especially happy to see Watson and Bruce moving. Cueto I wonder about but he has looked better of late. And maybe Richie and Calvin can have some impact soon.
