    Louisville jumps ahead 2-0 after two. Willie Harris doubles in Soto and Costanzo. Tim Gustafson with two shutout innings so far.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Stephenson showing some uncharacteristic wildness. He gives up a single, a stolen base and two wild pitches in the first. Dragons trail 1-0 early. Dickinson, Waldrop and Silva have all singled. Stephenson has struck out two in his one inning of work.

    Slidin' Billy w/ 2 BB's thus far (only in the top of the 2nd) and got caught stealing 2B the first time and induced a balk the 2nd time. Nice start.


    Really loving this kid's approach at the plate: Get on base as often as possible!


    eta: just stole 3B, obviously.

    As lackluster and uninteresting as Louisville has been this year, the top four hitters in tonight's lineup are all decent to good prospects: Gregorius, H. Rodriguez, Phipps and Soto.

    That said, Willie Harris had three hits tonight (including a HR) and Corky had two (2-2) as the Bats won 4-2. Tim Gustafson pitched well and Jordan Smith got the save. Will Ohman hasn't been particularly good so far.

    Winker, yawn, is 3-4 tonight (.367). Vincej is 2-3 (.400). Mejias-Brean's 21-game hitting streak is in jeopardy.

    Billings leads 5-2 after eight, trying to go 8-1 in the second half. Guillon: 5 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 5 K. Adames: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K.

    Stephenson's final line: 4 IP, 3, 1 R, 2 BB, 5 K.

    Joe (formerly Josef) Terry had a couple hits with a 3B. Kyle (formerly Kyle) Waldrop had a couple hits with a 2B. Spencer (For Hire) Dickinson had a couple hits. Dayton lost 5-2.

    Travieso tonight: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K. Nice.

    Amir Garrett: 3 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K. Not bad.

    AZL Reds lead 2-1 after six.

    Phipps is not anywhere close to a prospect.

    In your opinion.

    He is 26, in AAA and not hitting his body weight. I would feel pretty comfortable saying he isn't much of a prospect.

    Well, as recently as this spring, he was considered a candidate (albeit an outside one) for a major-league roster spot. No doubt, he has had a wretched season, in particular the first half. It could have been a BABIP regression, it could have been a minor injury, it could have been a funk, it could have been a return to true form; who knows? He has straightened himself out lately, for what it's worth. The consensus is that he has some excellent tools (among them a fabulous arm). And the organization certainly seems to see something in him. It put him on the 40-man. The Bats keep hitting him first and third in the lineup, in spite of his awful numbers. Our own top 40 this year had him at #20. I think there's some room in all of that for opinion.

    He does have some good tools. And he might be a 4th or 5th outfielder. His entire career looks awfully similar with the exception of last season when his BABIP was off the charts kinds of crazy.

    I ranked him at #40 last season and don't think that was a mistake. He is 26 and has never really put up a season where his peripherals were good. That is not the kind of guy who is much of a prospect. Next season is his 'prime age' season. I wouldn't expect much from him at this point.
