    I wish the Tigers would promote Maybin.
    I think they are still waiting for him to have more line drives than infield hits before they think about promoting him.

    Yeah, I guess Upton would have to be ranked higher. #2 ain't bad, though.

    Upton does have 7 months on him though. I say that only half kidding.

    And don't neglect to mention the pitcher - 8 IP 3 hits 0 runs - James Avery drops his ERA from 5.29 to 4.80 in one start. Quietly, Danny Dorn is passing Stubbs and Szymanski (3-5, 3 RBIs tonight for Sarasota) as the second best OFer in the system (apologies to Dickerson, who I forlornly predict will never hit in the big leagues, which is too bad because he is a great fielder).

    Dorn isn't exactly ripping up Sarasota.

    Justin Upton.... I am not sold on him being better than Bruce at this point. His home/road splits in AA are quite polar opposites of eachother. His Home OPS is .546 points HIGHER than his road OPS. Its amazing what a ballpark will do for you sometimes.
    His home park is easily the best hitters park in the league. It is well above average in allowing doubles, triples and HRs.

    Re: 6/25 Minor League Updates

    The most dissappointing thing has been the poor pitching lately in the system. Guys like Gonzo,Avery,Lecure and Logan O have never really put up good numbers this year, Fisher has wilted, Wood probably never has been healthy and Cueto has struggled in some respects.

    Definitely a downer for a organization that needs plenty of arm power.

I KNOW Bob Castellini does not like that talk. Even the common Reds fan knows who Bruce is and would probably be in favor of starting him next year.
    I'm sorry, just to be clear - you actually want the Reds to sign Byrnes to a multi year deal for $7-10 million per? This Eric Byrnes?

    Career AVG/OBP/SLG/OPS+
    .268/.327/.457/102

    It's true that Byrnes is having a pretty nice year so far in 2007 (OPS+ of 126) but there is nothing indicating that he will continue to have this level of success. At age 31, he's not likely to improve much. I'd look for Byrnes to be this year's Gary Matthews Jr.

    Sorry to call you out here Reds44, but I feel the need to address this

    There are more than a couple of "fans" on this board that I think would make much smarter decisions than some of the other management in baseball.

    I do know what you are getting at though.

    The fans in Cincinnati would love Brynes because he is 'scrappy". I however, would never spend that much on Brynes. He really doesn't have a position in the lineup. I'd much rather give Dunn his $13 mil. then given Brynes 7-10.

    Matthews really isn't having a bad year, but it's probably not worth how much money he is making.

    Somebody had that list of free agent OFers, can somebody repost those please.

    Was that intentional?

    Jay is a large man.

    Johnny Cueto makes his AA debut tomorrow.

    If Krebs ever hits for the cycle, they should give everyone with a Biology degree free admission to the ballpark the next day.
