    Clayton Shunick and Doug Salinas complete the shutout started by Salinas. I don't suspect there are many of those in the California League. Bakersfield wins 3-0. Two hits each for Stephen Hunt, Mark Fleury and Jose Gualdron (both doubles).

    The AZL Reds lost 7-6. They were down 6-4 going into the ninth, and I was about to post that that's what happens when Brandon Dailey is held to one hit. Then Dailey hit a two-run homer in the top of the ninth to tie it. That kid (.436) is looking sharp.

    Drafted late (past the 30th round, I think) last year out of high school. Canadian. Played SS for one of their national youth teams. He must have got a nice bonus to sign. Signed late, so didn't get on the field till instructionals.

    If he keeps hitting, they have to consider pushing him to Billings. When you dominate, you move up, and he's dominating.

    With the Reds just because you dominate a league doesn't always mean you will move up... just ask Smith, Corcino and Hayes from Dayton

    Good kid.Drafted 34th round Had scholarship to Ohio which I think scared off a few teams as he is a serious student. 3 time canadian Honda hit, run and throw champion as a child. Played on same team as Billings pitcher Mitchell Clarke. He's really eager to move up to Billings as he is accomplishing what his coaches are asking of them. Provincial 100m and javelin finalist. Heck of an athlete and very dedicated.

    For those who might have missed it on other threads, kookyguy coached Dailey in youth leagues. His son and Dailey played together. So he's our resident Brandon Dailey authority.

    Interesting stuff about the hit, run and throw contests. Three times can't be a fluke. And you've got to be impressed with a kid who can excel at both the javelin and 100-meter dash. That's a wide range of athleticism. And most of all, you've got to be impressed with a kid who's such an athlete and can also put the bat on the ball. That's a very promising combination. It also sounds like he has the intelligence and dedication to put it all together.

    Could he be this year's Torreyes?

    So, what kind of talent level was he seen as? As in, if he had no scholarship, and no thoughts of going to college, what round might he have gone in?

    At the moment, Dailey leads the AZL in hits, runs and total bases.

    Why would anyone mention Louisville? It's not like the Reds are going to promote any of those scrubs.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)

    Well, if they had struck out four times each;Horst had give up a couple of homers and Gil had blown the save they would have fit right in with the Reds and been promoted this morning. But since they didn't they have earned another two weeks in Louisville.
