    Horst (Sarasota) threw a very good game yesterday. He made one bad pitch in the first inning (HR) and basically cruised the rest of the way. The other run that scored got on by a 3rd strike that got past the catcher…

    Reds need RH bats and they leave Frazier and Cozart in AA?

    Is Watson injured or hitting a string of bad luck? He has allowed 10 hits and 8 runs in his last 3 appearances (6 innings.)

    Heisey just keeps on hitting, no matter where he is. I get the feeling that Billy Hamilton will be special one day.

    I’m going to try to get to a GCL game this week (Thursday or Friday) and check out Hamilton…he’s sure started off as if he’s too good for that league.
