    Thats my thoughts as well.

    Wilkin Castillo really isnt just a catcher though. Still someone has to be released unless one of the major league catchers are hurt again or something and Corky is going back up to the major league squad.

    Re: Devin Mesoraco

    I wanted this, so if true, I am pleased. Devin with a few weeks in the AAA pennant race and learning from Corky on handling pitchers and calling a game?

    Yes please. A really nice capper to the progress he has made this season.

    Good point!

    But for real most of these promotion stories are broke by local home town papers.

    Re: Devin Mesoraco

    Louisville has a flat out nuts line up now.

    Yonder
    Valaika
    Cozart
    Francisco
    Balentin
    Sappelt
    Frazier
    Mesoraco

    Every single one of those players probably end up a starter for a couple seasons at some point in their career.

    Seriously!....When was the last time the Reds had that much serious talent waiting at AAA?
    Just for kicks I randomly looked back 5 years to 2005 to compare how far the AAA roster has come. Oh my.......

    2005 Bats lineup
    1B AJ Zapp
    2B William Bergolla
    SS revolving door of Jeff Bannon, Tomas Perez, Luis Lopez, Aaron Holbert, etc...(no player played more than 38 games at SS that season!)
    3B Edwin Encarnacion
    OF Chris Denorfia, Pedro Swann, Kenny Kelly, Jason Romano, and a cast of other nondescript guys.....
    C Dane Sardinha

    Elizardo Ramirez led the starters with 7 wins in 21 starts
    Chris Booker anchored the bullpen with 8 wins and 20 saves

    We've come a LOOOOOONNNGGG way baby!

    And that doesn't include Danny Dorn, who, in 2010, is arguably the equal of anybody on that list (as a hitter).

    They have a great AAA lineup. Not sure all those guys will start for 2 years in the majors though. Valaika? Balentien? Highly doubtful. And I'm sure chances are a few of those other guys will struggle to make the jump, just going by the law of averages.
