    Thursday May 1st minor league updates

    Louisville 7:00 - Tom Shearn

    Chattanooga 8:05 - Ramon Ramirez

    Sarasota 7:00 - Alexander Smit

    Dayton has an off day.

    Scoreboard shows Ramirez pitching but today is Daryl Thompson's scheduled start. He hasn't pitched since Friday the 25th.

    Juan Francisco, after going 88 atbats without drawing a walk to begin the season, walked in his first atbat tonight and has walked three times in the last six games. He's a walking machine folks.

    You ever think sometimes these guys are doing what comes natural, then someone complains/comments that they don't walk enough so they go up and prove they can?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Francisco's walk yesterday was intentional, so it doesn't count

    Valaika's homer today was intentional as well, and it does count!

    Hopefully Val doesn't so a swan dive again, ditto for Turner and Stubbs. Nice to move all 3 up to AA by June.

    I wish all players slumped like Jay Bruce.

    Sub 340obp, sub-900ops for Bruce is slumping. He is struggling a bit with the offspeed stuff and it shows on missed walks and modest power. He is a good enough natural hitter, he hides his "slumps" well but I think it is pretty evident he isn't swinging a overly good bat right now. It is definitely delaying his arrival to the Reds.
