    2010 - 11 Winter League thread

    It's only a little over two weeks until the Venezuelan Winter League start (Oct 12th) and about half of the teams have updated their websites with current rosters. Here are the Reds players I found by team, from the teams that have updated their rosters (keep in mind that more may be added later):



    Navegantes del Magallanes:
    Douglas Salinas
    Yorman Rodríguez


    Caribes de Anzoategui:
    Aguido González
    Carlos Méndez


    Tigres de Aragua:
    Delgado Jesús


    Aguilas de Zulia:
    Henry Rodríguez


    Leones del Caracas (incomplete):
    Chad Reineke
    Wladimir Balentien



    The Leones del Caracas have not updated their roster, but on their website, their is an article stating that Chad Reineke and Wladimir Balentien will play for them, so I listed them. Four of the teams, including the Leones, have not updated their rosters yet, so there likely are more reds players in the VWL. I will update this list as those rosters, and the rosters for other winter league, are relieved.

    I believe Efrain Contreras was released by the Reds.

    Wladimir Balentien will not play. Ben Jukich is also on the roster for the Leone del Caracas.

    So far, the stand out is Henry Rodriguez. He's 10 for 23 with 3 doubles.

    Several pitchers are having bad starts. Klinker has pitched 1.2 innings and has a scary ERA of 21.60. Needless to say, he was very hittable. Whatever he had in 2009 looks to be long gone.

    Francisco got his first HR in the Dominican tonight. His average is down but he has a 5 game hitting streak.

    Henry Rodriguez is still hitting well. Felix Perez is too.

    So, I just found out that there are some Reds prospects playing in the new Australian () Baseball League this winter:

    Didi Gregorius and Donald Lutz are playing with the Canberra Cavalry, and Nathan Driessen with the Perth Heat.

    I have heard absolutely nothing about this league, but it is apparently a very legitimate Winter League with plenty of players from minor league teams, and Japanese and Korean leagues.

    So is his OBP....

    Hopefully him hitting will lead to him being more patient.

    Also in the Australian Fall League is Tom Fiebig, an Australian pitcher the Reds signed and later released a couple years ago.

    I wonder if the whole "you can't walk off the island" mentality extends to winter league. That is to ask, are Juan's aggressive tendencies being reinforce.

    It seems like it might be like Homer not really developing until he started facing hitters who could tee off on his fastball.

    Fransisco needs to face pitchers who will make him pay for expanding his zone so much.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I don't really know if that is true. In 2009 he had 7 walks in 194 PA's. Not really outside of his US rate. In 2008 he had 12 walks in 179 PA's.

    While I do agree with you as to what could turn him around, I don't think the 'be very aggressive and hit the ball ideology is being fed to him.

    It would be like telling a fish to swim.
