    Re: Build the rosters of each affiliate

    Rather than list lineups and reserves for the minor league affiliates (too unpredictable), I'll just go something like this:

    Cincinnati (would be my lineup, not Dusty's):

    CF Stubbs
    SS Cabrera
    1B Votto
    3B Rolen
    RF Bruce
    2B Phillips
    LF Balentien/Dickerson
    C Hernandez

    SP Arroyo
    SP Harang
    SP Cueto
    SP Bailey
    SP Maloney
    CL Cordero

    Louisville

    Notable Hitters:

    CF Heisey
    1B Alonso
    3B Frazier (might play him at 2B)
    LF Francisco
    RF Dorn
    SS Cozart
    2B Valaika (might play him at 3B)

    SP Wood
    SP Klinker
    SP Lecure
    SP Smith
    SP Avery
    CL Ondrusek

    Carolina

    Notable Hitters:

    RF Sappelt
    2B/LF Puckett
    2B Buchholz
    CF Reed
    SS Gregorious/Negron

    SP Chapman (should be in Louisville by June)
    SP Leake (could be in Louisville by ASB)
    SP Fairel
    SP Carroll
    SP Horst/Webb (will move into rotation once Chapman or Leake promoted)
    CL Joseph

    Lynchburg

    Notable Hitters:

    CF/RF Fellhauer
    CF/RF Means
    LF Wiley
    SS Rojas
    C Mesoraco/Coddington (play D-Mes behind the plate 5 days a week and DH Coddington)

    SP Boxberger
    SP Sulbaran
    SP Serrano
    SP Ravin

    Dayton

    Notable Hitters:

    C Soto

    RF Silva
    SS Hamilton
    2B H.Rodriguez

    Rooke Leaguers to watch (Billings or GCL):

    Craig Tatum was claimed on waivers by Baltimore.

    And what's up with Jukich in A+? He was taken by the Cardinals in the rule five draft, and if he were returned, he would go to AAA.

    If Reinecke is Josh Roenicke, he is no longer with the Reds, was traded to Toronto in the Rolen trade.

    I'd definitely put Heisey at CF in Louisville. I think that is his future.

    The Reds have already said Mike Leake will most likely begin the season in Carolina.

    Re: Build the rosters of each affiliate

    The AAA RiverBat roster may be better than Kansas City's, top to bottom. Starting pitchers are outstanding (they're all major league caliber-- if not ace material). The outfield has a chance to outproduce their major league counterparts. And the infield has two MLB Top 50 top prospects, two solid top 15 prospects for the team, and at least one probable former major leaguer as a back-up. There is legitimate help at every position on the team.

    And as to AA, as good as Louisville is, Carolina has a chance to be that bad. Depending on Soto's movement, there may not be a prospect on the offensive side of the ball.

    Re: Build the rosters of each affiliate

    72--a few questions. Who's West? Who's Danielson? Did you leave out Cairo or just figure they won't keep both him and Burke? Have you heard they're putting Partch in the bullpen or do you just think there's not room for him in the rotation? Same with Infante. And are they committed to trying Konstanty as a pitcher? Thanks.

    Re: Build the rosters of each affiliate

    redsof72, I could be wrong, but I don't think Bill Bray has any options left. I don't know if the Reds could outright him without another team picking him up.

    Re: Build the rosters of each affiliate

    You may be correct on Bray. Good call. If he is out of options, healthy, and throwing well in March, I would probably move him to the big league list and move Fisher to Louisville.

    Kevin West, signed as a free agent. Kind of a version of Kevin Barker.

    Link to career stats:

    Sean Danielson, signed as a free agent, fills the role that Cumberland filled last year.

    Link to his career stats:

    http://stats.howesportsdata.com/howe...son,SeanP..txt

    This is all guesswork. Cairo...hard for me to see him sitting on a Triple-A bench. If you are a veteran infielder, Louisville is not the team you want to be with right now. Partch...I could see him remaining as a starter if there is room but on that list, there is not room unless they put Janke in the pen or send Ravin back to Dayton. Infante...not sure. Could fill either role. Guys like Infante often start seasons in the bullpen because they will target higher profile prospects for the starting jobs to get innings. Then when the need arises for a starter later in the season, those kind of guys are there...Konstanty, as far as I know, will be a pitcher in spring training.

    Re: Build the rosters of each affiliate

    Who in the Reds organization had his mother punched by Sean Henry? His numbers are always solid, so why would the Reds stick him at AA for the fourth consecutive years? Personally, I've seen the guy play a number of times and would be very tempted to call him a non-prospect, but I find it hard to justify keeping a guy down those kinds of numbers.

    Re: Build the rosters of each affiliate

    I'd like to see Hamilton and Yorman get a shot in Dayton. I also think Soto should be behind the plate there to start the year.

    Also, is Boxberger going to begin as a starter or reliever? Either way, I'd imagine he should start in Lynchburg.
    Go BLUE!!!
