    I think you remarked that on Sunday Trammell came out of the game just to get some rest, but he didn’t play Monday or Tuesday. Nursing something small maybe?

    • Eric Wormus

      Stopped by to say the same thing. Maybe on of the 3 GMs called down to Daytona to pull him for a promotion to AA and then a second GM called and said no, go ahead and play him, but the 3rd GM called and said, no pull him he is being traded.

    • Greenfield Red

      Maybe he’s being called up by the Yankees.

      A snide comment like mine above doesn’t add much, but it makes me feel better!

  2. Matthew O'Neal

    I know I shouldn’t root for failure, but I kind of want Romano to have a hiccup tonight, just so the Reds might recall BobSteve.

  3. Stock

    I noticed that Debby Santana is not playing for the DSL Reds. I hope this means he is in the USA this summer.

  4. AirborneJayJay

    The draft has gone fairly well for the Reds so far. The first 5 or 6 picks are very good. The last five seem like they are restocking the rookie teams. So many RH relievers.
    One question, did the Reds have any LH pitching on their own draft board? It is lacking pretty much throughout the system, yet the Reds have picked no LH pitchers so far. That was the only oddity from yesterday.
    The first three picked Monday are solid as were the first three yesterday. Those first 5 rounds are important to do well with for small market teams. After that it is anybody’s guess.
    Too bad Keury Mella has hit a real rough stretch recently. I had hopes of him advancing more quickly this year.
    I think the Reds front office is horrible for most part. And I cannot give them too much credit, that has to go to the scouting department who recommended these players. But what a huge return (so far) the Reds got from the Dodgers for Tony Cingrani and Ariel Hernandez. The Reds have missed neither. Even though the players the Reds got were low level A prospects, they sure have done well in the Reds system to date. Clemintina and Ibanel I believe lead all Reds minor leaguers in HR’s. They have impressed this year.

    • Colorado Red

      Some of these picks are save money picks to sign Siani, Mike.
      Just a thought.

      • AirborneJayJay

        Yeah, that seems to be the thought. The top=10 rounds count against their total pool. Maybe saving some money here also for rounds 11, 12, 13 to lure away a college jr. from his sr. season or a high schooler away from a college commitment.

  5. kevinz

    I knew other day when asked if Trammell was okay when left early something was up.
    It was his only hit but was a clutch Double 2 rbi by Senzel late in the game

  6. kevinz

    Is CF Watson from Lsu going back to school is that why still available in the draft?

    • Kap

      Probably. He is only a sophomore so it would make sense to increase his draft status next season

  7. Simon Cowell

    wins and losses equal talent at the major league level so why don’t we consider wins and losses as a basis for our talent level in the minors? Louisville and Pensacola are playing terrible baseball. It has to point to a depletion of talent at that level otherwise they would be more successful. My statement is substantiated whenever a player is called up from Louisville and they promptly get clobbered in the majors.

    • RedsinWashSt

      Is it possible Simon that the Reds have graduated some younger talent to the majors then most other team have. I think you are going to find that 2A gets better in the 2nd half after 3 or 4 of those in +a move up.

      • Simon Cowell

        If this were true it would equate to wins at the next level of promotion. Louisville isn’t gaining wins from Pensacola players graduating. Cincinnati mostly definitely isn’t benefiting in the success column based on the players graduating to the big leagues from AAA

    • MK

      Unfortunately for those of us who like the competition, it is not about wins and losses in the minors at least not for Reds.
      Example: at Dayton if a pitcher is having a super night he is coming out when he gets to his pitch count. Conversely if he is terrible, he is staying in until he gets to his pitch count.
      If a lefty pitcher comes in to pitch to a lefty batter they will not pinch hit. They let him hit so he can learn to hit lefties. Some other organizations play every game to win. Always thought D-Backs, Tigers and Blue Jays played their teams to win every game.

      • Tom B.

        Maybe that’s part of the Reds’ problem. I get what you’re saying, MK, but I have always believed that players want to win. And for the life of me, I don’t understand why the two have to be mutually exclusive. To me, winning is a culture that starts at the grass roots. I don’t think it’s enough for a guy to just get his innings in or his AB’s in. I think the evidence is on the field right now for the Reds. Can anyone honestly say that the Reds instinctively know how to do the little things to win a game? I say those things are best learned when you have a purpose to your play. I consider “winning” as part of “development.”

      • MK

        Delino DeShields, when he was at Dayton, told me he was not supposed to call for a bunt that they wanted the guys hitting.

  8. RedsinWashSt

    Hopefully on day 3 the Reds can talk a couple of guys who were going college into coming to the Reds. Will of course require money.

  9. AirborneJayJay

    Some interesting college pitchers still on the board.
    Noah Song, RHP, 6’4″ 200, Navy’s ace starting pitcher. His US Navy commitment is a little in the way.
    Isaiah Carranza, RHP, 6’5″ 180, Azusa Pacific U., transferred from Oregon, one of the better Div. II starters.
    Davis Martin, RHP, 6’2″ 200, Texas Tech.
    Two high schoolers.
    Eric Cerantola, RHP, 6’6″ 195, Canada, the #2 prospect from Canada and a Miss. St. commit.
    Ty Madden, RHP, 6’3″ 180, Texas, A U. of Texas commit.
    Don’t know how solid their commitments are to college. Still not drafted so assume its pretty solid.
    All seem to have very good fastballs with sinking action or late action on them. Sort of like the two 2nd picks. Gray was a Div. II pitcher also like Carranza. Carranza could be a solid round 11-12 pick.

  10. Brad

    FWIW, I would send Romano down to AAA after his start tonight. With 3 off days coming up, Reds dont need a 5th starter until June 23rd. Add a bullpen arm or bench piece. Attrition of season is starting to show already in bullpen. I am also for sending Peralta down if it helps with his control and command.

  11. MK

    Not having a monster year but Chadwick Trump has quietly moving up in the catcher’s depth chart. His home run late in the game last night tied the game.

  12. MK

    Tyler Stephenson is 6 for last 34 average has dropped from .298 to .275
