Yep and Dorn is officially on the DL.
Any idea if the plan is for him to remain there the rest of the year?
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
Hopefully he can go on a tear and either fetch the Reds a good player in a trade or come up and fill the Reds left field role.
"In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"
Was kinda surprised he was down at AA to start the year but I always felt it was more because of playing time than anything.
I would love to see the org. keep Yonder Alonso as the best possible candidate to take over 1b after Joey Votto's departure b/c the Reds cannot afford to lose the payroll flex caused by paying what Votto will legitimately ask for. Don't misunderstand: I'd love to keep Votto, but I think it's highly unlikely. Therefore all the "trade Alonso" sentiment just risks opening up another hole to fill a couple of years down the road.
im guessing Frazier and Alonso will alternate between 1st and LF in AAA ?
