    That's the optimum lineup, offensively--and the first time I recall it. The bottom of the order has your top two home-run guys, back-to-back.

    Kevin Goldstein mentioned a few Reds prospects in his minor league report today...

    •Daniel Corcino, RHP, Reds (Low-A Dayton): 7 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 8 K. 20-year-old Dominican gave up 11 runs over 13.2 innings in his first three starts but has 1.48 ERA since; plus fastball, plus breaking ball and plus command is a wonderful combination.

    •Zack Cozart, SS, Reds (Triple-A Louisville): 3-for-4, RBI, SB, CS. Yup, still hitting; .320/.363/.488 in 69 games.

    •Yasmini Grandal, C, Reds (Double-A Carolina): 3-for-5, 2 2B, R, 2 RBI, K. Best game since last week's promotion to Double-A; 6-for-17 (.353) in five games.

    •Ronald Torreyes, 2B, Reds (Low-A Dayton): 3-for-4, R, 2 RBI, 2 SB, CS. Small second baseman with big-time bat speed is 10-for-24 in first six games of the season.

    Pretty amazing when there is no room for Chris Valaika in a AAA lineup...

    Have you paid attention to the season Valaika is having? It isn't good. Heck, for that matter, his career in AAA hasn't been good. He has 1068 PA in AAA with a line of .265/.300/.363.

    True, but he was a AAA all-star last year, and played with the Reds this season and last, so I think he is probably still considered a slumping player with potential rather then a bust. He does not deserve to be in this lineup now, but it is pretty amazing that there is no ROOM for him in a AAA lineup.

    But did he deserve to be a AAA all star last year? Sure, he hit .300, but it was pretty empty (not many walks and very little power).

    Phipps has hit his first home run of the year to tie the game for Carolina, 1-1 in Tennessee.

    Not sure, all I was saying was that having no space for a recent major leaguer in tonight's lineup shows how strong it is - regardless of his stats this year.

    Neftali Soto is 1-for-2 with a 3-run HR (#10) and a walk. It's his 5th HR in his last six games.
