    Just FYI to the Janish homers, he is now batting .240 on the year.

    Nice to see Valaika and Tomko playing again. I guess Tomko has some serious rust to knock off, but I hope he can get that done and back in form quickly. I just have this suspicion that Uncle Walt may be ready to pull the trigger on a significant trade and Bailey may be close to finding a new home port. He has really increased his value this year. The Reds have multiple starters in the minors approaching major league ready and of course Chapman is still waiting for his shot at the starting rotation.

    good to see Yorman Rodriguez playing again. Was he not at High class A Bakersfield earlier . Let’s hope he is starting to mature.. He has the tools

    @littleleo1: You are correct Lil’ Leo. Yorman made a big splash at Billings in 2010 and really jumped up on the radar, but fell off significantly last year at Dayton and just layed an egg in Bakersfield earlier this year. I think he’s been down working on his stroke and approach at the plate before being promoted back to Dayton again. I’m with you, I hope he will keep up the good performance. He has a huge upside potential.

    I’ve said it before. Ryan Wright needs a promotion. He is over-classed for the MWL.
