    All these hits/runs and Frazier is on the bench. He needs to get going.

    Haven't taken a closer look at the Dayton cats, but those batting averages look pretty good. Is this team underrated?

    Joseph should be in Lynchburg, if not Carolina. No reason for college relievers drafted that high to be toiling in Low A a year later- especially when they're sporting an ERA under 1.00.

    He'll be up soon enough. No reason to rush him -- he's not going to be in Cincy this year. I like the idea of Dayton winning games, and he's a big part of that.

    Re: Monday 05/03/10 Minor League Updates

    I just looked at the game recap of Chapman's start last night. By my count, five of the hits off Chapman were of the groundball variety. I'm not even worried about the hits, what I'm focusing on the most is his BB/K ratio. He posted a 1 BB/8 K ratio last night after walking only two and striking out four in his previous start. So in his last two starts, he's got 3 BB/12 K in 11 innings. Hopefully he can continue making strides with his control. Judging from the very small clips I saw of his start last night, he appeared to have his secondary pitches working.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    The biggest thing about Chapman last night was his abrupt change in effectiveness. It was purely mental. If he's going to be a big leaguer, he's got to learn to stay in his game.

    1st inning: K, GO, GO on 14 pitches
    2nd inning: FO, BB, Popup, line out on 13 pitches
    3rd inning: K, K, Double, K on 18 pitches
    4th inning: HBP, K, single, single, K, single, single, single, single, K on 33 pitches

    To be fair, I'd find it hard to focus if I were up fifteen runs or so as well.

    I'd like to have him ready to step in at the big league level in some capacity by the time Cordero moves on. To get him ready, he needs to start facing real competition. Highly drafted college relievers move faster than anyone. That is a big part of the appeal of spending a high draft pick on them, especially when you consider the fact that they have a shorter shelf-life than just about anyone else.

    I noticed that Jukich got the save last night. Let the conversion to closer commence!

    He wasn't up 15 runs. He was up 7 runs. He was up only 2 runs after the 4th.

    But the Bats scored 6 in the 5th and 5 in the 6th.

    Sure, just your average 4 IP save.

    Sorry, the hyperbole that was inside my head apparently didn't transfer to the computer keyboard.

    What I'm saying is that it's perfectly understandable and reasonable that he might "drift" and that you shouldn't read anymore into it than that as of now.

    Now, if he struggles a great deal over the next couple of starts, perhaps this might be important.
