    Doug, is there ever a let down for you when a top prospect leaves the minors. Like you spend 3 years watching senzel’s every move and then he’s just gone. And then all of a sudden you’re just covering players who aren’t as good?

      Nah, because then they go to Cincinnati to help, and ultimately that’s what this is all about, right?

      It does, however, change how I go about watching/following games. Some guys are priority “have to watch/follow every night”. Not many of them. But a guy like Senzel is/was.

        That’s good to know. I always wondered if it would have left you feeling like the morning after Christmas. Or that Stephen king finish to andy dufruene in shawhshank. “I have to remind myself that some birds aren’t meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up DOES rejoice. But still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they’re gone. I guess I just miss my friend.”

        Nothing like that?

    Anthony DeSclafani appears to be back & healthy. In his last 4 starts, he’s gone 23.2 IP, allowing 4 ER, on 13 hits, walking 7 & striking out 28. He’s a little younger than Sonny Gray & if he continues to pitch well, Reds may be wise to offer him an extension similar to the Gray deal.

    It appears Scott Moss has made some adjustments to be more successful at AA. Still walking too many but certainly giving his team a chance to win.

        Ebby Calvin “Nuke” LaLoosh, who should be noted “got the call” from the Class A Carolina League.

    Pinto interesting in Dayton. High 90’s w/put away breaking stuff. As always, command will dictate. I’m not sure where he came from but he & Hendrix have legit bullpen arms if healthy w/command.

    On paper Lyon had a really good day ! He just turned 19 in January. Didn’t he really start to pitch as a senior in HS ??
