    Thanks for the info, Jay should be up just in time for the Reds to go fifteen games over .500 the rest of the way and steal the Central.

    Not really, but having Bruce and Votto both in the lineup will make the games more exciting to watch when Volquez and Cueto aren't pitching. Let's get Jay some experience so he's ready to mash in 2009.

    Compared to whose plate control and what the Reds have ?
    Patterson -
    .200 .260 .421 .681
    vs. Left .083 .154 .083 .237
    vs. Right .217 .275 .470 .745
    Freel -
    .304 .347 .362 .709
    vs. Left-- .344 .382 .438 .820
    vs. Right .270 .317 .297 .614
    Hairston -
    Small Sample:
    .345 .367 .517 .884
    vs. Left .333 .400 .556 .956
    vs. Right .350 .350 .500 .850
    Bruce -
    .325 .353 .548 .900
    vs Left-- .333 .317 .513 .830
    vs Right .322 .367 .563 .931

    I would have to risk it with Bruces Plate Control

    Matt Klinker is taking the mound for the Dragons.
    Daniel Guerrero is on the mound for Sarasota.

    Frazier bats 3rd for Sarasota and Mesoraco bats 6th for Dayton. Logan Parker also is playing tonight for Dayton at DH.

    And, of course, rain delays Mesoraco's debut again in Dayton.

    The point was that he wasn't overly ready to contribute in the majors. Since when is that standard, being better than Patterson and Freel? The Reds' timetable should be based on what will make Bruce the best longterm player he can be, not based on a weak MLB standard.

    Bruce is probably ready to be the best CF on our team, but at the same time, I think his lack of plate discipline will lead to more struggles than most are anticipating. I'd rather he refine his game at AAA first, but at the same time, maybe he needs to see some major league pitching to see the importance of laying off the bad pitches.

    Great night for my deep sleeper, Guerrero. 7 shutout innings, 6 K's.

    Valaika must have broken an arm on the plane ride to Sarasota last season and was such a gamer he played through it. Who thought he'd have an OPS pushing 1.000 right now?

    This is what I've been waiting to hear!
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!
