After you have read the “DOTF” report today, please click on the comments section below, sign your name, and then click send. I would like to have an idea of how many people are reading the reports. If you have any suggestions or other comments, feel free to leave them too. (If you are famous, you can leave a fake name, I like Mike Brady). Also as Chad mentioned earlier, there is a new blog dedicated to the Reds farm system called Raising Reds. Daryl is doing profiles for various prospects.


Charlotte 4, Louisville 2

23 year-old Ryan Wagner finally pitched good!! Ryan tossed two hitless, scoreless innings. His ERA plummeted to 7.50 for the year. He struck out one.


Carolina 3, Chattanooga 2

Former 1st round pick (by Boston in 2000) Phil Dumatrait turned in his second good outing in a row. Phil pitched 5 innings giving up only 3 H, 1 BB, and an ER and recorded 5 Ks. Dumatrait, who missed all of 2004, has a 3.09 ERA with 35 ks in 35 innings.

Dayton 7, Wisconsin 2 Game 1

    I go through the Reds blogs daily … okay, several times daily. Too much time on my hands.

    I hate it. It’s a waste of my time.

    I had a girl and she did me wrong
    I didn’t let that kind of stuff go on too long
    Split the clouds and divided the sea
    Showed the evil girl how nasty the tiki god could be
    She didn’t call no more nor bother me
    My little tiki god make sure I’d live in peace
    One day I read they found a body in the river
    Tiki God, make me shake, make me shiver
    I got a Tiki God… saves me… I got a Tiki God
    When Bobby Brady found the idol in the rubble
    Had no idea it would cause so much trouble
    When Marsha tried to throw it back in the ocean
    There was a rumble, an awful commotion
