    It's evident that this team is still too reliant on the home run.

    I also read that Skeeter Barnes is the baserunning coach for the Rays too (I think it was Hal's blog). Sure are seeing a lot of names from the past these past couple of weeks.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Three simple words: Fultz Metal Jacket
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    He's got a good rep as a defender.

    True for this game, but it's only the first of Spring Training. There was a potential run from of a single but Votto was thrown out at the plate.

    I'll take runs/wins any way I can get them but I would like to see the Reds score more often without homers.

    I think he's got a shot at making the OD roster if Gonzalez starts the year on the DL (likely).

    Thanks, I'd never heard of the kid. Once I figured out he was a catcher, the camp invite made more sence.
