Nice Game for Double T keep raking Young Man. Glad to see Siani have a good Game, still Early, but still lovely to see . Reply Kap April 12, 2019 Trammell is on some kind of streak. He could be in Cincy in September or even earlier if he keeps this up. Reply The Duke April 12, 2019 I doubt we see him this year. 3rd week of April next year at the earliest, mid season seems more likely. I suppose if he just goes absolutely ballistic and the Reds are in the hunt then maybe, but if that’s the case then where would he play with Winker in LF, Senzel in CF, and Puig in RF? That’s 3 everyday guys. Assuming we don’t resign Puig, I think we start next season with Winker in LF, Senzel in CF, and Schebler in RF, and then once the extra year is secured, shift Senzel to RF where his arm will play, and put Trammell in CF. Reply Cguy April 12, 2019 On the other hand, Siri had a golden sombrero , plus 1. He struck out 5 times last night. He’s now K(ed) 13 times in 26 AB. Reply The Duke April 12, 2019 Jose Siri 0-5 with 5 K. Ouch. Would that be like a diamond sombrero? Platinum sombrero? Taylor Trammell with a 5 game hit streak now and has been on base all 6 games this season. .417/.500/.667. Of his 10 hits, surprisingly no doubles or triples yet to go with his 2 HR. Luis Gonzalez with a nice start to the year hitting .357/.400/.500. With his plus glove at SS, you can never count a guy like him out. Still 24 and he can backup any infield spot, could still carve out a reserve roll in the bigs.. Gavin Lavalley quietly with a 6 game hit streak to start the year. Only multiple hits in one of those, but has 2 2B and 1 HR, good for a .333/.400/.571 line. Joel Kuhnel with 6 K in 2 IP, that’s impressive at any level. 10 K’s vs just 1 BB and 2 hits in 5.2 IP so far this year. 0.00 ERA, 0.53 WHIP. Could see him getting bumped up to Louisville by midseason if he keeps dominating. Mark Koloszvary off to a nice start in Daytona. Already with 6 RBI to go with a .353/.450/.471 line. Very good defensive catcher as well. Similar physique and tools to Tucker Barnhart, except Barnhart may have had a little more power. Jhon De Jesus with huge ground ball numbers early on. Always like to see that, and especially when they are missing bats as well. Siani with his first big game of the year. No extra base hits yet and too many K’s, but that speed is game changing. Might be a little over matched now, but it will be fun to follow his progress as the year goes along. Reply Cguy April 12, 2019 Sorry Duke . I guess we were posting simultaneously about Siri. Reply The Duke April 12, 2019 I prefer the term Platinum Sombrero personally. AirborneJayJay April 12, 2019 Looks like Siri has a new tool for his tool box. The K-bar, or KaBar. AirborneJayJay April 12, 2019 Oh, Oh, Oh, O’Grady’s. The guy is going to hit his way to Cincinnati. The Reds may want to see if he can play some corner OF. No room for him in Cincinnati in 2019 on the INF or the OF or the bench. But with lots of contracts expiring at season’s end, O’Grady could be an important piece for 2020. Reply KJR April 12, 2019 He’s primarily an outfielder who’s played 49 games in right 150 in left, and 142 in center Reply Hoyce April 12, 2019 I’ll go w plutonium sombrero Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
