    Somebody actually follows Willie Harris on Twitter?

    Re: Xavier Paul Recalled?

    So for the second day in a row we play America's favorite game show, "Guess The New Guy's Number!"

    Available numbers under 60 are: 7, 16, 26, & 56.

    I'm going to go with 26.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    I'll guess #7. Its hard to explain, but some guys feel like even-number guys to me, and some like odd- number guys. Paul feels odd.

    The Bad: .629 OPS in 411 Major League PA's.
    The Good: .890 OPS in 1148 AAA PA's (2008-2012).

    Somewhere in the middle would be huge.

    Well, it's hard to argue that he's not the best option.

    Like him better than Redmond, Harris, Constanzo, or Casey
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I definitely think his real talent lies somewhere in the middle. Not as good as his AAA stats, not as bad as his MLB stats.
    "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."

    Re: Xavier Paul Recalled?

    Well I hope he's at least somewhere in the middle because the need for a LH option is startling. Last night was the first time in 7 years in the entire major leagues a team sent an all righthanded lineup to the plate against a right handed starter. Last time was in 2005. If that doesn't tell you how badly imbalanced this team is nothing will.

    I'd sure love Paul to start off hot as heck and wait until after three or 4 weeks to start regressing.....

    I hope for Redmond's sake that one day of service isn't going to wind up like Moonlight Graham.

    True that.

    Of course, there's always the possibility for one reason or another, Redmond doesn't survive the 40-man roster until September lol

    Re: Xavier Paul Recalled, Redmond to AAA

    So, for those like Chico, Klu and Woy who keep track of such historical things, is Paul already the best player to play for the Reds whose name begins with X?

    Seriously, I think this was the best choice. He can run, play all 3 OF spots acceptably (but he's not great in CF) and hits lefty. He also has the best chance to actually hit IMO. I'd like to see him get a start or 2 in CF against a RHP.

    Well in his first appearance he proves he fits in - he hit the first pitch for a pop fly out
