  1. I feel compelled to continue my SSS post until they are no longer SSS. BHam since the ASB (5 games and 20 AB now): .400/.473/.550

    That is a torrid pace my friends. Maybe the best 5 game stretch from him all season long.

  2. .251/.310/.344 BHam for season.
    .284/.346/.365 Bham for past 7 series, 19 games.

    .278/.374/.470 Winker for season.
    .252/.331/.423 Winker for past 10 series, 29 games.

    .294/.389/.495 Ervin for season.
    .271/.364/.542 ervin for past 4 series, 13 games.

  3. Reported by Ben Badler over at BA:

    The Reds have agreed to terms with 19-year-old Dominican lefthander Luis Tejada for a $600,000 signing bonus.

    Tejada had originally signed with the Braves for $125,000, but that contract never became official after Major League Baseball declared him ineligible to sign for one year over issues with his age. Tejada then came forward with a new date of birth—Dec. 23, 1993—that was a year older than he had previously presented. His penalty ended last month.

    MLB’s penalty has turned into Tejada’s gain. After throwing around 88-92 mph when he signed with the Braves, Tejada’s fastball velocity has since jumped up to the mid-90s in short stints.

    Tejada trained with Javier Rodriguez and Rudy Santin, who also worked with Dominican lefthander Jacob Constante when he signed with the Reds in January for $730,000. Constante, who turned 20 in March, has pitched well in the Dominican Summer League with a 2.45 ERA, 31 strikeouts and 11 walks in 22 innings.

    Tejada is the biggest known signing for the Reds since the 2013-14 international signing period opened on July 2. The Reds have the second-smallest bonus pool in baseball at $1,862,100.

    At least the Reds are dabbling in the international market, even if only sporadically.

  4. I don’t want to peck about this, but as great as WJ is regarding everything he does, I’m starting to lose confidence in his ability to draft. Chris Buckley has been here longer than WJ and prior to WJ the drafts were a “can’t miss” type of deal. So I don’t think Buckley and his scouts are the issue.

    Looking back, the main reason the Reds are thin is not because of trades. Yes, that drained a lot of talent, but look at 2010 and 2009 and tell me what is going on. That is pitiful.
