In addition

John Fay reported in today’s Enquirer that 25 year old LH outfielder Chris Dickerson was promoted to Louisville. Dickerson’s numbers in ’07 are .272/.325/.351. When asked if this meant Jay Bruce (.325/.372/.595) would be a candidate to replace Dickerson in Chattanooga, Krivsky said, “Not immediately.”

I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.

  1. Who is Dickerson replacing at AAA?
    Who’s playing CF in AA?
    Just seems like an oddly timed promotion.

    I didn’t realize Tyler Pelland got moved to the AA bullpen. I assume to work on his control? or is this a permanent move by the organization?

  2. I assume Marland Williams will be playing CF at AA, Wise has been playing CF at Louisville.

    I read that about Pelland somewhere, not sure where, maybe Doug knows more?

  3. Doug covered Pelland on the day that Mallett replaced him in the Chattanooga rotation. I asked him about the odd timing, given that Pelland was coming off his best start of the year, and Doug said that Krivsky was watching him for that last start…maybe he picked up on something.

    But it’s a move I’ve been wondering about for a while. Shorter outings may force him to concentrate a little more, and that has seemed to me to be his biggest hurdle.

    Early returns look really good. 2 innings last night, six strikeouts with a hit and 2 walks allowed. If the shorter outings allow him to cut loose and skyrocket his K-rate like that, and his arm adjusts to the different usage pattern, the Reds are suddenly looking at a huge asset again.

  4. Just got an email from the Dragons, Daryl Thompson has been promoted to Sarasota, taking place on the roster is Jamie Arneson, who has been on the Dragons DL. He’ll start tonight vs Peoria.

  5. Tyrell Godwin was demoted to AA, so he will probably be playing in the Chattanooga outfield in place somewhere for Dickerson.

    DA covered about all I had to say about Pelland to the bullpen.

    Bill thanks for the Thompson update. I saw it reported somewhere else earlier, but couldn’t find anywhere that it said that.

  6. My favorite summer activity is to follow the ups and downs of Robert Manuel.
