    Jukich is having a hell of a game. IP 6.0, H 5, ER 1, Walks 2, SO 4.

    If Wood can put up these numbers in Chatt later this year, I put him ahead of Thompson as the minors #2 SP.

    Why? Thompson is succeeding (convincingly) at a higher level and with better stats than Wood.

    Justin Reed is 1-for-2 with a solo HR (#1).

    I'm glad to see Carroll have a good start. If he can learn some control, he could be a decent pitcher.

    He said IF Wood put up Thompson-like stats at Chattanooga. I imagine it has something to do with "scouts"...
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Would be nice for the Reds bp prospects to get it together. Their k/9 is pretty good so I suspect it is probably locational problems early in the year. It will be interesting as the season progresses if they get rushed up to the majors later on in the season so they can take their lumps.

    Are you sure about that? He said "these numbers," referring to Wood's. Those numbers today were good, but they haven't been that way all year (far fewer strikeouts too).

    Yeah, Wood could put up those kind of numbers in AA, but the odds are stacked against him. Outside of Bailey, I'd venture to say it's been quite some time since a Reds pitchers has compiled the kind of numbers Thompson has right now.

    Basically, I think it's very unlikely that Wood will post similar numbers to Thompson.

    Chattanooga won 10-4.

    Cumberland: 2-for-5 homerun (#5), 3 RBI
    Henry: 2-for-5 two RBI

    Jukich: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 4 K

    Tabor: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K...4.1 scoreless innings with 5 K's since promotion to Chattanooga. He could be another bullpen sleeper, especially as a lefty.

    Herrera = Teh awesomeness

    Good to see Rosales have a good day. Even better to see Bruce have a walk.

    Good to see Rosales' bat coming alive. He does get his share of walks

    He gets his share of hits usually as well. By the end of the month, I figure no one remembers his April was bad.

    Yes I meant "if" he put up numbers similar to how he's pitching in Sarasota. I don't see why you think it's unlikely Wood could do that. Remember, he's a second round draft pick with the systems best change up with a decent fastball.

    Concerning Thompson's stats, they're great, but there's been plenty of pitchers recently with just as impressive numbers. Cueto last year, Bailey in '06. Wood had ridiculous number in '05. IMO, I just think that Wood has a higher ceiling than Thompson and will end up the better pitcher.
