    I don't think it matters whether Francisco is in Dayton or Sarasota, I don't think he'll be playing 3B for much longer. I say move him to 1B or a corner OF spot beginning next Spring Training, with Edwin, Frazier and Waring, I think there's already enough organizational depth there, and Juan clearly doesn't have the fielding prowess to remain there anyway.

    If Juan Francisco is back in Dayton again next year I am going to go choke someone.

    How about Juan? 153 K's this yr and 22 BB's and you wanna see him move up to a league which is historically tougher on offensive games? Ok well when he struggles there let's not jump all over anyone in the organization for taking such sound advice from it's fans.

    Is there any possibility they are stretching him out to try him in a rotation next year sort of like Matt Belisle? Someone mentioned he was a starter in Dayton a few years back. I'm sure there was a reason he was moved to the bullpen but his past few 3 inning stints have been very good. He might be an interesting name to throw into the mix next year to compete for that 5th starter spot if he could do it and if not he would make a nice swing and long man out of the pen...

    Would I love to see him cut down on the strikeouts and add some more walks? Absolutely. However I don't know if keeping him in a league that he is leading in HR as a 20 year old is the best plan for him. He is going to have to learn to not swing at everything, but I don't think moving up a league or staying in a league is going to make that happen. Its something that he needs to make happen and the league will have no bearing on it.

    If you are going to keep him in Dayton, which I wouldnt TOTALLY be against (thought Id just as much like to see him in Sarasota), move him to 1st or a COF spot.

    Agree. If he stays in the league he can already handle with his free swinging style, he may just fall into an "ain't broke don't fix it rut" and never be motivated to change. I say move him up.

    Just my opinion, I don't think they're looking at him as a rotation candidate, but if he hasn't cracked the 7/8/9 roles yet (Bray and Burton are ahead on him on the pecking order, and Weathers is still here), the remaining reliever spots need guys who can go multiple innings if need be. I think they're trying to find out how well he does multiple-inning outings and how quickly he can bounce back.

    Exactly.

    Waring hit 2 more bombs tonight for Billings giving him 18 in 64 games. I think he is ready for Dayton's DH spot in the playoffs.

    Waring is my #1 prospect. Move over Jay.

    Waring has been very impressive, he is hitting around .475 in the last ten games, with 4 games with 2 homeruns. He is too advanced for the pioneer league.

    I agree. I'm not sure why both he and Frazier haven't been moved up especially given their college experience.

    Frazier actually did move up. He went 1-4 with a double tonight for the Dayton Dragons.
