Juan Francisco is 3-for-3 tonight with a double (#15) and two singles.
Only Cueto has been making a move lately, Watson's push has also been stalled. Thompson is still trying to adapt to high A. The low A guys are not overly impressive and Gonzo is looking more like a bullpen conversion guy each start. Ugly work by those guys.
I have a theory, it goes like this:
Chris Valaika and Justin Turner are still in Dayton because the Reds don't want to hurt Drew Stubbs' feelings.
They should both be is Sarasota. If you look at the stats of the guy's in front of them, it should be a no brainer. They are 50+ points higher in average. Valaika is 3rd in the MWL in RBI's and Turner is 4th in hits. They were both MWL all-stars. I don't know what they could waiting for.
In the bottom of 8th Jay Bruce drills a 2 run home run to straight away center. Chattanooga losing 10-5 going to top of 9 . Homer was Jay's 4th in 11 games with the Lookouts and 2 rbi's give him 12 in those 11 games , is 1-3 the homer and a walk tonight.
Louisville won 1-0
Livingston: 7 Innings 4 Hits, 0 Runs, 1 BB, 1 K

Nice to see Jay Bruce homer. He's been slumping over the last three or four games.
Big nights for some of the guys in Dayton. Drew Stubbs is 3-for-5 with three singles and a walk. Justin Turner is 2-for-3 with two singles and two walks. Chris Valaika is 1-for-3 with his 10th homerun and two walks. Juan Francisco is 4-for-5 with a double and three singles.
Waring is 1-for-2 with a single and walk.
Could Votto be on the way to the Allstar games?
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
good to see Stubbs coming around a bit..
