    A hellacious day in the system when guys can go 5 for 6 with an HR and a 2B (Pigott), 4 for 4 with a HR (Maddox), or complete game victory with no ER allowed and not be recognized as Player of the Day. Would lve to see more of this, including at the major league level.

    After watching all four games in San Diego last week, I’m now in Gulf Shores so may try to catch the Blue Wahoos at home tonight.

    A little housecleaing can go a long way and a lot of housecleaning can turn a team around!!! Since his promotion to AAA, Gregorius is 5/10 w/ 2 doubles and has simply picked it in the field. Since coming off the DL and being promoted to AAA, Rodriguez is hitting .310/.333/.414. in 29 AB. Nice starts for those two prospects. Its so nice to talk about real prospects at AAA again! There will be growing pains and adjustments necessary, but at least its a start. Gregorius has 3 SO in 10 AB with no BB. The SP at AAA still has only 1 prospect and a load of pitchers with ML experience on their way out, but the RP is loaded with a hot tub full of prospects.

    The SP at AA should place three prospects in AAA by the start of next year along with probably 3 more prospects from the RP. Jeez, Louisville could be absolutely loaded next year with very serious pitching prospects, to the point that some may have to be retained at AA just to get the requisite work and development. The IF at AA is still raw and the IF promotions from A+ to AA have struggled. It’s a big jump from A+ to AA (probably more than the jump from AA to AAA), so those prospects will need time to develop, but they are real prospects. The opportunity for the OF prospects at AA is laid out before them. There is simply a dirth of solid, young OF prospects in AAA and the OF prospects in AA are showing solid, although not spectacular, results.

    Keep that pipeline churnin!!! There’s more getting ready at Bakerfield, Dayton and Billings, although not as much as the past two years. Last night was sooooooooooo much fun throughout Reds Land!

    AA pitching is getting the job done, and following Cingrani is a tough act to follow as he was dominant again…Serrano has been used mainly out of the pen, but his 5 starts have been as good as anyone in the system…His last month and a half, starting or relieving have been more than noteworthy…
