Doug Gray April 19, 2019 That game was a mess from a pitching standpoint. There were 18 walks in the game. There were also 28 strikeouts in the game. Crazy. Simon Cowell April 20, 2019 I thought that walks were a sign of patience on the batter? How many times have you blasted me in the past for calling out pitching and not batting for walks? Doug Gray April 20, 2019 What on Earth are you ranting about? Simon Cowell April 20, 2019 You are saying Friedls success with OBP is due to poor pitching. In the past you have criticized me and others for the viewpoint you are now demonstrating. Doug Gray April 20, 2019 How you took that from what I typed there is incredible. PTBNL April 20, 2019 Oh, Dale. kevinz April 20, 2019 Dietrich baby not over yet but a nice Blast. MK April 20, 2019 Good night for Good Guys. Wins top to bottom. A first for 2019. Moss continues to get strike outs, just like at lower levels, but everything else about his game has digressed. Conversely Aaron Fossas continues to have success with from the eye test very pedestrian stuff. Norwood Nate April 20, 2019 Juan Martinez is someone who I thought could have landed at the end of the top 25 prospect list. He’s off to a nice start this season coming off a pretty solid season in RK ball last year. He’s one of several young guys that are intriguing for one reason or another. Doug Gray April 20, 2019 The power is real with Martinez, for sure. Hasn’t resulted in a home run yet this season, but they’ll come. Ball comes off his bat well, carries. Jim April 20, 2019 Reds sub .500 Minors with about 4th overall selections last 5 yrs sub .500 Someone ran down how our prospects aren’t off to good starts the other day. End of April and I’m already looking forward to next year already. Wonder what’s on the History Channel. Cguy April 20, 2019 Jim , it has been disappointing so far. But in their defense, the Reds #1 (Senzel) & #2 (Greene) prospects have yet to play baseball. Additionally, the Reds traded away their #7 (Long), #9 (Downs), & #14 (Gray) Prospects (according to Doug) for ML players. Perhaps the Reds MiL system is not as deep as was advertised. Still there’s probably 20 or so teams who would swap their Mil system for ours. RobL April 20, 2019 19,11,2,2,5- That’s where the Reds have drafted the past 5 years. As Cguy stated, the two number two picks are both hurt. So is the 19th pick. Jim, maybe watching the History Channel will improve your accuracy when complaining. Oldtimer April 20, 2019 If you measure Reds MiLB by its W-L record (cumulatively) they aren’t very good the past few years (not just this year). If you measure it by skilled talent at the top (the cream, not the milk) the Reds MiLB system is among the Top 10 in MLB. MK April 20, 2019 Heatherely out of game after nine pitches, arm injury suspected.
