    Why Ryan Lamarre will succeed...

    He trains with Mike Barwis... The same guy who transformed Lamarr Woodley and Brandon Graham.

    Anybody going through his programs comes out a Beast...

    Michigan still sucks.

    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Hope you're right. But I've seen nothing from him yet that impresses me that he's a top talent. I've been more impressed with Bryan Smith. (could just make me a bad judge of talent)

    He needs a better swing. He can get bigger/faster/stronger and it won't do much a the plate unless he starts using his body to swing instead of his arms.

    Barwis was gold during the RichRod years at Michigan. (Nope.)

    I hope that he has that power potential, much like Didi was said to have... scouting reports from the draft claimed that he had potential in that area, if i remember correctly. He's one of the guys that I feel could break out in any given year if he makes the right adjustments, and will burn out in AAA if he doesn't.

    He has the size and strength for it. But right now, his swing is never going to have any power. He is all arms.

    Didn't LaMarre come out of college with a severe wrist injury that zapped his power? I thought he put up decent power numbers until he injured his wrist. Perhaps he picked up some bad habits that a good coach could correct?

    Bump.

    Ken Griffey, Sr. likes LaMarre.

    BAKERSFIELD MANAGER and former Big Red Machinist Ken Griffey Sr. was watching former Dayton Dragons outfielder Ryan LaMarre take batting practice.

    “With all the talk about Billy Hamilton and his steals, well, LaMarre stole 52 bases for me in 2011,” said Griffey. “That kid can run. I told him the only way for him to learn was run on his own so I gave him the green light to run whenever he wanted.

    “And he’s the best center fielder I’ve ever had, can really go get ‘em,” said Griffey. “He reminds me, and I’m serious about this, of The Chief.” The Chief is Cesar Geronimo, Gold Glove center fielder for The Big Red Machine.”
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    LaMarre will have a breakout 2013, be promoted to AAA, get regular AB's and put up a slash line of:

    .285 12 HR 65 RBI 35 SB .382 OBP

    Gold glove defense

    2014, welcome to the Reds

    I could see LaMarre playing the 5th outfield role for the Reds for a good part of the season, considering they don't have a true CF with MLB experience on the team right now.

    I would be stoked if Lamarre panned out with a Geronimo-type career.

    The Chief was perceived by many Reds fans as an all-glove, no stick guy, but in reality he wasn't half-bad at the plate. He just paled in comparison to luminaries like Bench, Morgan, Rose, Perez, Foster, etc. Despite being the runt of the Big Red litter, Geronimo still managed a 93 OPS+ over a 15 year career. Average offense plus elite defense at an up-the-middle position equals a darn solid career.
