    He wasn't really called up. He was in AAA on rehab and was taken off of the DL. While there he hit .387/.424/.645 with 2 home runs, 2 doubles, 2 walks and a strikeout in 7 games.

    They have it wrong. They list him with those stats for 2013. But when I dug further and went to KC's player stats, he's not listed.

    www.mlb.com has it wrong on his player page. Sorry.

    He is showing up on the Diamondbacks' active roster. http://diamondbacks.mlb.com/team/ros...e.jsp?c_id=ari

    He is on the active roster, but he wasn't called up. He was simply activated from the DL, where he began the year. He was rehabbing in AAA.

    Yes sir.

    Funny enough, I went back and watched both of his home runs he hit while there. They went to almost the exact same spot. In Reno there is a big tower in the bullpen (probably a light tower). His first home run landed right in front of it and bounced off of it. His second home run hit off of the tower about 8-10 feet up.

    Chris Denorfia's line thus far: .364/.429/.523

    Heisey/Paul are okay, I guess, but I would love the chance to have a Denorfia/Dickerson platoon.
    "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."

    Out of curiosity do you guys think that Gregorius will be better than Cozart? Do you think that the Diamondbacks would have taken Cozart over Gregorius?
    I see great things in baseball. It's our game.

    I believe Gregorius will have a better career than Cozart, though maybe not a better 2013 season. After this season though, I would take Gregorius. Better defense and I believe he has a potentially better bat as well.
