    Agree. My preseaon pick was Carlos Fisher, but Rosales is the biggest climber in the organizational prospect rankings in my book. Dorn would be a close second.

    Suddenly the Reds have a few cheap position players ready to assume a role in Cincy while more expensive guys can be shipped off to help the team reload. Beyond Bruce and Votto, Rosales, Dorn and Dickerson could all be playing roles in Cincy next year. That is in addition of course to Hamilton, Keppinger, Cantu, Hopper and Pedro Lopez. I wouldn't be surprised to see Tatum or Perez as an option as a back-up catcher by mid-2008 either.

    The major league team has been held back in part by poor decicions on questionable vets. Hopefully the progress made by the organization in 2007 will make it easier to say no to these mistakes this winter.

    I have seen alot of people praising Pedro Lopez. From the games I have watched he is very good in the field but lacks a bat. Is this the book on him or was it just a small sample size?

    Cueto struckout two more in the 5th inning.

    5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 8 K

    His command is a little off tonight, which is very unusual for him. He came into tonight allowing only 1.88 walks per nine innings.

    Brad Salmon: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K as the Reds continue stretching him out for some reason.

    Danny Dorn is 2-for-3 with a double and single for Chattanooga.

    We praise thee Brad. Deliver us from Saarloos and Santos.

    He's got 20 strikeouts in his last 12 innings pitched.

    Salmon used to be a starter. He last was a starter in 2002 for Dayton.

    Well said, if I had to pick 7 guys for next year's pen right now Salmon would be one of them. That holds true whether he's a 1 inning guy or a long guy.

    Brandon Waring just launched yet another HR tonight in his first atbat, a 2-run shot. That is Waring's 17th homer of the year and 9th in 10 games.

    Which begs the question, who is the 3rd bagger at Dayton next year? Francisco, Waring or Bartles?

    Why would Francisco go back to Dayton? I would imagine Francisco in Sarasota and Waring in Dayton. Not sure where Bartles fits in. I'm predicting 50 homers out of Waring though no matter where he starts.

    Really, hmmm. I have thought all along this year that Juan needs another half year in Dayton minimum. His plate discipline and defense need alot of work. Sending him to Sarasota with that plate discpline could be disastrous.
