It's nothing against Gualdron, I just think Byron Wiley should be playing everyday. I'd like to see Gualdron play everyday too because he's still young (21) and has some strong defensive skills from what I've read. I don't understand why Menchaca is playing over Wiley. Again, nothing against Menchaca but he turns 24 tomorrow and he OPS'd just .534 last season in Dayton. Wiley is a 5-tool talent and is arguably the most talented player on the roster. He deserves to play everyday, IMO.

What's the word on Wideman? Canadian and just turned 20. He's been pretty hot right out of the gate this year.
Simply said, he's a cacther with strong defensive skills, but there are big questions about his bat. His hitting has been improving ever since he signed, though, and this could be a breakout year for him.
Trivia: His brother was drafted by the Expos and traded to the Blue Jays for ex-Reds farmhand Tyrell Godwin.
