    If you can't be excited about baseball in the Spring there is something wrong. So be excited about the kid.

    I don't see Garcia making the team out of spring training. But I think he'll be up pretty quickly if he puts up the kind of numbers at AA that he did in high A. #reds

    Short of Castillo (who wasn't really homegrown) the Reds really haven't had a prospect rocket up out of nowhere during the past 10 years. This is awesome.

    Defense - check!
    Power - check!
    Can hit a major league fastball in spring training - check!

    Can he recognize and lay off the breaking ball? Let's see if he can do that in AAA.

    They also seemingly like to take their grand time moving people up through the minors. That might partially be due to the fact they haven’t really had anyone go gangbusters and force the issue.

    they promoted Luis straight from AA, could do the same with Jose this season. Although Jose is much younger than Luis was at the time of his promotion.
    The television crews left and about 10 reporters remained in the room. That's when Price took his turn doing the talking.
    What followed was a five-minute, 34-second expletive-filled tirade. The final tally was 77 uses of the "F" word or a variant and 11 uses of a vulgar term for feces (two bovine, one equine).

    Yeah, we pretty much follow this sport hoping for a true phenom to show up on our favorite team. And to have Jiggy bust out like this right at the start of spring training is very cool. Can't wait to see what he does this season.

    That's a neigh impossible jump to the majors. The steps sorta look like this:

    Majors (regular)
    .
    .
    .
    Majors (established)
    .
    .
    Majors (cup of coffee)
    .
    .
    .
    AAA
    .
    .
    AA
    .

    Back in 1970 a skinny 20 year old from Venezuela ended up making the team. Many on Sparkyís first Reds team were young.

    Not sure I buy that breakdown. Iíve always considered AA and AAA to be very close together. Mainly due to the fact that AAA has a combination of legitimate prospects and guys who have stalled out and/or AAAA-types. I think itís more like:
