    It feels like I'm scrounging to find anything worthy I can to post about.

    Ah what time do they start? I will be at the reds game then.

    If the minor league teams have a good mobile site let me know.

    Carolina has 5 games to catch Huntsville. I think.

    Birmingham should help.

    I heard Bailey was awesome again tonight. Heard he was consistent at 94-96 mph and hit 97 in the 8th inning. I am not ready to give up on this kid yet. 1 earned run now in some 33 innings.

    I don't understand....if Votto is going to Sarasota he must be playing in the Gulf Coast League....the Florida State League All-Star Break begins Friday..so if he plays on Thursday he would play one day with Sarasota and then three days off....

    Isn't that where the Reds have their extended Spring Training camp? Maybe it has something to do with that? Just a guess.

    Three pitchers, both managers are ejected during a rout of the Dragons

    By Marc Katz
    Staff Writer
    1:04 AM Thursday, June 18, 2009

    DAYTON — Dragons pitchers J.C. Sulbaran and Andrew Bowman said they weren’t trying to hit Lansing batters Wednesday night, June 17.

    Home plate umpire Matt Neuhold decided they were, ejecting each during a 12-7 Lugnuts rout of Dayton at Fifth Third Field in a battle of teams trying to stay out of last place in the Midwest League’s East Division.

    While Lansing won, the Lugnuts remained a half game behind the Dragons.

    Sulbaran, who is prone to wildness and has not been effective in two starts since being given a nine-day rest by the Reds organization recently, was down 6-2 when Johermyn Chavez led off the fifth.

    In his previous at-bat in the third, Chavez drilled a grand slam to left following a triple and two Sulbaran walks.

    Sulbaran already led the Dragons with seven hit batsmen this season, and while he didn’t hit Chavez, he did sail his first pitch to him about two feet behind his head.

    Chavez pointed his bat at Sulbaran as Neuhold gave Sulbaran the thumb.

    “I had a blister on my (index) finger,” Sulbaran said. “That was probably going to be my last inning anyway. I wasn’t trying to hit him.”

    Just one inning later — with the Dragons trailing 8-3 — Andrew Bowman, who replaced Sulbaran, hit Justin McClanahan in the back with a 2-2 pitch.

    In McClanahan’s previous at-bat, he had smashed a two-run homer off Sulbaran, but it didn’t matter to Neuhold, who immediately tossed Bowman.

    “I wasn’t trying to hit a guy during a 9-pitch at-bat,” Bowman said. “The umpire said he had to toss me.”

    Not to stand idly by, Lansing pitcher John Anderson hit Kyle Day with the first pitch of the sixth, getting himself and both managers ejected.

    A four-run Dragons seventh couldn’t change the outcome of this one.

    JCS can't seem to get rid of those blisters. I've never heard of this problem reoccuring so often with one player. What causes this? Is it because the ball is coming off his hand with so much spin?

    Josh Beckett used to have a lot of blister issues. Maybe Moises Alou could give him some pointers on roughing up your hands.

    I think with Beckett he ended up using Krazy Glue on his fingers. I haven't heard of him having a problem with it since he went to the Red Sox.

    He had that problem at least one time within the last two seasons. A friend of mine is a RS fan and a huge Beckett fan and she mentioned it a lot when it happened the last time.

    That Dayton game sounds insane.

    Not so sure about this. Report used to be that he threw about 95. If that's still true, he'll neve cease being a prospect; lefthanders who throw that hard never do.
