    Re: Thursday 6/18/09 minor league updates

    I didn't know anything about Cozart when he was drafted, and couldn't have had an opinion of him at the time, but I loved his approach at the plate the first time I saw him in Dayton. He was one of those kids that "just gets it" when he was at the plate. I don't know how that translates as he continues to progress, but he seemed to have a Joey Vottoesque focus at the plate w/ a solid idea of what he wanted to do.

    Its nice to see that in the last calender year (my son had just been born about 2 weeks old, and he's now a week shy of 1), he's followed thru w/ great showings in his batting line.

    He never had a chance to showcase anything defensively, but if the reports are true, I think he could be an impact player both ways.

    They have finally resumed play in the top of the 10th inning after a 2+ hour rain delay.

    According to Gameday, Cozart flied out to the wall in dead center in the 10th inning, just missing his third HR of the game.

    On to the 11th inning.

    Why was Stewarts day so short?

    Threw 68 pitches in 3 innings and the Reds are trying to keep his innings down anyways. Made a simple decision to just pull him there.

    Wood's final line: 5 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 6 K...I believe that's the first time he's allowed three runs in a game this season.

    By the way, Chris Valaika is back in the Louisville lineup tonight. He's 0-for-2 so far. This is his first game since May 7th.

    Too bad Francisco doesn't walk enough. Guy is a powerhouse.
