    If anybody interested in a cool short vid. Type in Tyler Callihan scouting report in Google. The one about his Swing is like Yelich swing. The Wrap around Swing.
    Helps Generate Max power. Keeps the Bat in the Zone for a Long time.

    • Simon Cowell

      He has a great swing but runs like a penguin. I do like the pick and he just might come along at a time to fill the void left by a veteran such as Joey V.

      • kevinz

        True on the running Part lol. Hopefully he hits well enough to jog the bases a lot. I did read was better athlete then giving credit for.
        He does match well for the eventually Votto replacement.

      Glad to see Wenny back. He is a fun positive kid who I’m sure can add some life to a dugout and clubhouse. Think he could be a darkhorse in the long run. Might be a solid guy in the middle of a rotation. Still young at 21.

      • MK

        Never challenge Wenny to corn hole. I introduced him to the game when he was in Dayton at a picnic. The boy can just drop the beanbag in the hole like it is nothing. Never saw anyone get so excited about it either.

    Wow Doug. Impressive MiL Game Review.With the draft these last few days, you must be working 24/7 on this stuff.

    Congrats by the way to Aquino N Lady for having a baby. Greatest joy in the world.
    That could be a big reason to mature mayb slow some things down.

    I think it is looking more and more likely that Santillan will wind up in the pen as a high leverage reliever. If that is the case I think we only have two legit projectable starting pitchers as prospects in the minors, Greene (injured) and Lodolo (just drafted). This is quite a change from just a few years ago when there was a lot of potential. It does not bade well for the future.

    • RobL

      Packy is certainly making a case to be on that list of starting pitcher prospects.

    • MA

      You are right. Probably time to send a 22 year old pitching in AA with decent (but not spectacular) results to the pen. 22 is 2.4 years younger than the average pitcher in AA. Plus he only turned 22- 50 or so days ago. Patience.

    • Jonathan Linn

      Are prospects not allowed to struggle? Not everyone moves in a linear fashion which we as fans like to see. I think Santillan is still like 20-21 years old

    I would like to see Trammell try leadoff. Batting close to 300 with bases empty.
    Let him Start the action be a play maker type. Mayb he is just not a RBI guy.
    I hope at some Point Senzel Moves Down the order to drive in some Runs.
    Not sure who to Hit at lead off but need to shake things up a little bit.
    13 games i believe with 1 run or less for the Reds.
