    I’m assuming that Melock’s R for the last game is supposed to say 0? Cuz 9 is a lot for 2.1 innings!

    Perhaps redlegnation can write another open letter to Mr. Castellini to promote Medlock and Guevara to AAA. The major league team HAS needed bullpen help for the past year and one-third, and these guys have been at AA the entire time.

    Anyways, Medlock is working on another scoreless streak. 8 IP, 6 H, 0 BB, 8 K.

    I’m a little concerned about AA starter James Avery. He has 4 consecutive starts where his runs allowed exceed his inning pitch. After such a great start to the year, stats like this often reflect a pitcher trying to play through some sort of injury. Hope I’m wrong, but wouldn’t be surprised to see him on the DL soon.

    Votto got another start in LF last night.

    Who’s promoted to fill Homer’s AAA rotation spot? Fisher? Gardner? Think they’ll backfill the AA opening with Johnny Cueto?

    For those of you interested in listening, watching or going to the game, I heard on WLW at noon that Homer is pitching on Friday night not Saturday.

    What is up with you people? Why hasen’t Adam Rosales (Sarasota Reds)been moved up yet? He isn’t getting any younger just better. Get with the program and put him where he belongs while he’s still young enough to enjoy it and give his all!!It would be the SMARTEST move for everyone.
    Thanks and GO ADAM!!!!!!
