  1. Looking at baseball-reference, Jesse Winker and Jay Bruce are starting to have crazy similar numbers as Dayton Dragons.

    Jay played 117 games at Dayton, had a line of .291/.355/.516 with 106 Ks, 44 BB, 16 HRs, 42 2B, 5 3B, 19 SB(9 CS).

    Jesse, thru 102 games played at Dayton, has a line of .279/.375/.465 with 67 Ks, 56 BB, 15 HRs, 16 2B, 5 3B, 5 SB(0 CS).

    The two numbers that really stick out as the outliers are Jay’s immense lead in doubles, and Jesse’s significantly less number of strikeouts. I haven’t read anywhere that Winker and Bruce will be similar Major Leaguers, but the return on Winker looks promising, especially in comparison to Mr. Bruce.

  2. Every DOTF game summary for the Dragons mentions Ervin or Winker or both. These two guys are doing nothing to temper my growing enthusiasm for their potential and I usually don’t start getting excited about prospects until they produce results in A+ ball. It would be nice to see them get a brief taste of A+ ball before wrapping up this season.

    • @Shchi Cossack:What’s interesting to me is that every single one of the Reds’ top prospects going back to Bruce(excluding Alonso and Grandal, who both started in A+) has spent an entire year in Dayton, including Bruce, Stubbs, Billy Hamilton, and Devin Mesoraco. It’ll be interesting to see if the Reds’ buck that trend with these guys, though Ervin has hardly been there all year. It seems the year that these guys start in A+ is the year they begin to get aggressively moved.

  3. Today was a big win for the Reds. Now if they can keep the momentum in the next ten games before the big four game series at home against Arizona.
