    Re: Robert Stephenson

    Stephenson seems like a bright kid, no nonsense. I think the Reds may have a good one here, so long as he stays healthy.

    Re: Robert Stephenson

    This most likely means nothing, but he was getting hit hard when I saw him pitch in a minor league intersquad game last week.

    You're right, it means nothing. But good to know in general since we are craving anything we can hear about him.

    Dumb question. Where did he end up to start the season?
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!

    I would love to see him pitching for Dayton right now. Oh well. Have to wait for Billings I suppose.

    Re: Robert Stephenson

    Are there any rumblings at all where he might go after extended ST? I saw over a month ago talk was of mid-May or so being in Dayton, but has anything else been said?

    I bet he'll start off at Billings when they get crackin' in late June. Then if he does well, he'll get a late-season call-up to Dayton. Then next season he'll start at Dayton. Can't wait to see him pitch.

    Robert Stephenson Cincinnati Reds 1st Round Pick-2011 - YouTube

    Sorry if this has been posted in another thread, but I really like this kid (God, I'm 22. Why am I talking like this).
    "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."

    You're a good kid. Don't worry about it.

    Geez. When are we going to see this kid pitching in our minors?

    Re: Robert Stephenson

    Jamie Ramsey posted something on Twitter that Stephenson will start this season at Billings and it's a surprise because he was slated to begin with the AZL Reds.

    Uh, no he wasn't. He was always "slated" for Billings. It's amazing how some of these guys can cover the team and have no idea what they're talking about. (See, it's not just Fay who is bad. Sheldon leaves a lot to be desired too.)

    Yeah, I don't know if anyone really thought he was going to AZL. High School picks from the year prior rarely stay back in AZL/GCL unless he really isn't ready.
