    Bruce’s AAA numbers are now .314/.379/.640. And he’s only 20. He’s making this game look much too easy!

    The Dragons in their press release said that Guerrero will be coming back to Dayton after the one start at Louisville.

    I love minor league baseball. I’ve seen the Sarasota Reds play about 10 times this year (by contrast, I’ve only gone to 2 Devil Ray games). I love the energy and passion of the players. And I just wanted to comment on the the organizational depth the Reds are building at the 3 highest levels.

    Louisville: Bruce, Votto, Cantu, Janish and even Herr and Dickerson will all probably see the big leagues.

    And on the mound it’s even more stacked, with Bailey, Cueto, Gardner and Ramirez as SP’s and Bray, Mejewski, Pelland, Salmon and McBeth as RP’s. WOW!!!!

    Chattanooga: Tatum is only 24, a former 3rd round pick and is starting to look like a REAL C prospect. Dorn and Cumberland in the OF are both LH hitters with athleticism and only 23, and Rosales has some potential as a utility guy who can play several positions.

    On the mound, Fisher and LeCure look like real prospects and Roenicke is a bit old at 25 but has 19 saves and a ton of K’s.

    Sarasota: Definitely the least impressive roster among the three teams. Vaiaika looks like the only real hitting prospect. Strait and Szymanski are major disappointments.

    On the mound though, Lutz, Ondrusek, Thompson, Watson and Woods (though injured) have impressive stuff and are on the right track.

    All in all, the Reds have to have a top-10 system and possibly a top-5.
