    I could explain it but I will just leave it alone for now. Lets just say that C Trent really should have a job with that paper but doesn't because of someone pulling something they probably shouldn't have (not C Trent).

    Commentary: If the Reds care about the Dragons, they’ll draft better
    By Marc Katz, Staff Writer
    8:48 PM Sunday, August 2, 2009

    DAYTON — It’s tough to figure out if the parent Reds are trying to help or hurt the Dayton Dragons. Or better yet, if the Reds care about the Dragons.

    Well, they better. In about four years, what you see here is what you’ll get there, whether it’s good or bad.

    In the last three days, four pitchers have been promoted by the Reds from Dayton to Sarasota, and a real good case could be made for only one of them, Matt Fairel, who had a 2.93 ERA with the Dragons. Curtis Partch, Lance Janke and Aguido Gonzalez each had ERAs north of 4.00, and obviously weren’t mastering the Class A Midwest League, but they’ve been promoted as well.

    And how about catcher Jordan Wideman with his .178 batting average going to Sarasota instead of Kevin Coddington with his .294?

    “The players know what’s going on,” Dragons manager Todd Benzinger said. “I don’t think anything has to be said to them.”

    Coddington’s here because he’s having a terrific season, and maybe the Reds do want the Dragons to be a little successful. It was probably a factor in why Kevyn Feiner was promoted ahead of second baseman Cody Puckett or shortstop Miguel Rojas.

    At least some of the starters are able to stay in Dayton and play every day instead of moving up and having to sit out half the games.

    What the Reds need to do to really help the Dragons is draft better players, augmenting those they already have.

    wow. that's complete drivel. Its not even well written drivel.

    They should draft better and the players should not suck. oh, and if they don't suck they should stay and not move up. and if they move up its because the Reds hate Dayton.

    tool.
    Suck it up cupcake.

    if the Reds sent all their rehabbing players to Dayton Katz would find a reason to complain about it.

    I think we all would be mad at the Yankees for giving us bad players to watch.
    I'm mad enough at the Reds for giving us so many bad players to watch...

    ...on the major league team
