    I actually do enjoy watching him and hoping he turns into The original Vlad who could hit any pitch anywhere it was thrown. I have written before not everyone can just take pitches or work counts. It drives more than half this board crazy that everyone is not working counts. As long as he can recognize pitches better than Aquino and Jose B his plate coverage is fine.

    The observation made by the poster at Reds ML site was also on how the whole team approach not only there but up here is. The System has too many of the FS without the production to justify it.

    Re: Elly De La Cruz

    I'm curious to hear some recent reports on his defense. He's committed six miscues in his 17 games in the field at Chattanooga. Obvioulsy not all errors are created equal, but I'm wondering if any scales are tipping towards an outfield move.

    I've heard the field in Chattanooga is not exactly the best it could be.

    That might be a part of the issue.
