    Re: June 1st Minor League Updates

    It doesn't sound so bad when its put like this:

    Brandon Watson singles on a ground ball to center fielder Corey Patterson.
    Oscar Robles singles on a ground ball to left fielder Jerry Gil. Brandon Watson to 2nd.
    Rich Thompson walks. Brandon Watson to 3rd. Oscar Robles to 2nd.
    Andy Tracy out on a sacrifice fly to left fielder Jerry Gil. Brandon Watson scores.
    Jon Knott flies out to center fielder Corey Patterson.
    Jason Jaramillo singles on a ground ball to right fielder Chris Dickerson. Oscar Robles scores. Jason Jaramillo to 2nd. Rich Thompson advances to 3rd, on fielding error by right fielder Chris Dickerson.
    Brennan King called out on strikes.

    He wasn't exactly giving up line drives.

    Homer threw a 1-2-3 second inning.

    All three hits in the first inning were groundballs.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Nothing exciting, though nothing really bad.

    Whole thing doesn't make any sense to me.

    Guy suddenly can't pitch that well.
    Now he's getting a call up when Maloney appears ready.

    Could Homer be throwing lefty in these AAA games? Is he just working on stuff and not really trying? Do the Reds think he'll suddenly turn it around against the Phils? Is it because he's on the forty man roster while Maloney isn't? Maybe Walt doesn't read minor league stats (doubtful)? Is the whole thing a misprint?

    Something doesn't add up.

    Maloney isn't on the 40 man roster...I'm guessing that has something to do with it.

    Let's be fair....Bailey's been rough lately after a nice April. Maloney's been good lately after a rough April - there's probably more to the numbers, but I don't have them in front of me

    He wasn't exactly missing any bats either.

    Sure it adds up: velocity. Throw between 94-98mph consistantly and he misses bats and dominates.
