    Barnhart with a double down the first base line.
    Lohman walks. Runners on the corners.

    He's just obliterating that league. He must be doing something special out there. If nothing else, he's come a long way from the third round college closer with iffy secondary stuff.

    Am I crazy to think that Cingrani is the No. 1 pitching prospect in the organization? Everyone wants to put Robert Stephenson ahead of him, and while I loved the Stephenson pick in the first round last year, he hasn't pitched an inning of pro ball yet. I'd have to put Cingrani ahead of him for now just because of what Cingrani has accomplished during his time in pro ball. Small sample size, but utter domination.

    Also, I like Cingrani a bit more than Corcino. And I like Corcino a lot! I know everyone has Corcino ranked higher than Cingrani, and I can understand that. However, if I had to bet my house on who will have the better MLB career, I would pick Cingrani.

    I suppose the bottom line is that the Reds have three really-good starting pitching prospects in the organization with Cingrani, Corcino and Stephenson.

    Nooooo! The attendances are worrying, but as a NorCal-based Reds fan, having the team there is awesome! Hopefully they can recover. There were quite a few Reds caps in Modesto on Saturday so I'm not alone

    What Tony Cingrani is doing is impressive. Its more impressive then Dyan Bundy to me.

    I'm happy he's been so awesome, but mature college players beating up on levels below AA might be more a case of men among boys than an indication of how he'll perform at higher levels (see Frazier, Todd). Its awfully early, but he needs moved to AA ASAP IMO.

    You have to wonder why they're not stretching him out more (Griffey claimed that 90 was his pitch count, though he was taken out at 79). 5 1/2 innings pitched per game in a place where quality pitching is at a premium doesn't strike me as a great vote of confidence in his future as a starter. The going is gonna get much rougher when hitters at higher levels figure out that fastball over the course of a game, so he might be destined for the bullpen in the long run unless he can get some solid off-speed stuff to compliment it.

    He did get robbed of extra bases once on a great leaping, diving catch by the centerfielder per Blaze radio. I am not really sure how someone makes a leaping, diving catch.

    A small correction here.

    but utter domination
    should read
    but udder domination
    After all they are playing in Cow-lifornia.

    I can see merits for both. Cingrani doing what he has in the Cal League is insane given how the ball travels in that league. But Bundy does had 17 innings, 2 walks and just 1 hit allowed with 25 strikeouts. He has only faced 52 batters in 17 innings. That is one more than he had to. He has struck out 48% of the guys he has faced. Cingrani has been insane. Dylan Bundy has almost been Steve Nebraska.

    Wow, Cingrani has got to be in line for a promotion soon.
    "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."

    Yes, you are crazy. Cingrani hasn't really shown enough of his secondary pitches yet to be ahead of someone like Corcino who has. There are still a lot of scouts who think Cingrani is a reliever in the long run because of that.

    Time for some fun with numbers-- pitcher's division:

    Among High A starters:

    Cingrani leads the league in ERA, H/9, WHIP, HR/9, and ER. He's second in Ks. He's 16th in IP and owns a 6.17 K:BB ratio.

    That's... not bad.
