  1. Can they bring up Keppinger, already? Seems like he is highlighted on this everyday. What else does the guy need to do?

    I know, I know…Castro is signed through the end of the Bush administration…

  2. Castro is signed through…

    Ha ha – can’t wait for both to be ended. I knew Keppinger was doing reasonably well, but at this moment you’d have to say that he’s having a slightly better (luckier) year than Votto, and he’s no slouch.

    Aaron Herr has cooled off since his hot May.

    That was quite the game in Chattanooga, with a bottom of the ninth comeback completed by one of those Jay Bruce doubles off the wall.

  3. Is there any word on when Bray might be with the big club? I really like his stuff and think he needs all the experience in the majors that he can get.

  4. Klinker’s looking awfully good so far. Wonder if they’ll give him a start? That was his longest outing yet.

    I’ll have to ask.

  5. I heard pre-game on Sunday as I was walking through the ball park. They commented that Keppinger is batting .400 and has an OBP of .500 when batting lead off this year.
