    Dontrelle is maybe two good starts away from forcing the Reds' hand IMO and getting a shot with the big club. Especially if Volquez, Arroyo and Bailey don't turn things around. Hopefully Willis is sharp tonight against the team with the best record in AAA.

    Bailey has a 3.64 ERA, 1.71 BB/9, and 7.29 K/9...he's doing just fine.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I'm just wondering what the plan is with Willis. The rotation is not going to dismantle enough for him to get a shot IMO. Why not put him in the bullpen like the original plan and get something of value out of that signing? Just seems like a waste having him burn quality innings in Louisville.

    Lets be honest here.... who is going to go down for him?
    Code:
    Pitcher	        ERA
    Arredondo	3.48
    Bray	        1.59
    Chapman	        5.82
    Cordero	        1.49
    LeCure	        2.70
    Masset	        3.35
    Ondrusek	1.79
    The only one would be Chapman and we know the Reds aren't going to do that.... so really, there isn't room for him in the bullpen, which has been pretty incredible with the current guys.

    I agree. If he joins the big league club, it's going to be as a reliever. Might as well have him pitching out of the bullpen in preparation.

    Billings leads Missoula 7-4 in the bottom of the 4th. First Baseman Robert Maddox hit a 3-run HR (3rd of the year) in the 6-run 3rd inning.

    He's gotta be more useful than Arredondo. That guy seems to have lost a tick of stuff post TJ and is walking way too many batters to be consistently effective IMO.

    Two walks bring the winning run to the plate with only one out for Billings.

    Buckley flies out and Waldrop strikes out to end the game. Billings loses 9-7.

    I thought Dontrelle was starting for the Bats tonight? Looks like Tom Cochran started.

    Cochran gets two ground outs, walks a man, gives up a single and then gets another ground out to end the first inning.

    Not a Bryce Harper fan but he has been promoted to AA Harrisburg from low A Hagerstown.
