  1. Bats are really playing good ball. At the beginning of the season, everyone assumed they would dominate, but came out of the gates slow. Now, even after losing some of their best players to the Reds, they are finally playing to the level we all assumed they would at first. Alonso and Frazier are mashing right now.

  2. High scoring games today I see 21-10, 8-7, 8-6, and 8-3. @TC hahahahaha 😀

  3. The Reds should send up Ryan LaMarre to Lynchburg because he is tearing up Dayton. He is batting .293 with 3 HR and 22 RBI and 15 SB in only 46 games. He got drafted this year in the 2nd round out of college (Michigan). If Grandal will not sign which was his problem then he would be our highest draft choice and one of the best prospects in the organization. The Bats have won 16 of their last 17 and they are in second place in their division behind the Columbus Clippers. They are behind by 2.5 games but lead in the wild card by 3.5 games over the Buffalo Bisons. They are 36-23 at home and 28-28 on the road. They have been home 10 of their last 12 games and getting ready to have a big road trip. Wladimir Balentien has 20 HR and 58 RBIs but got hit in the arm by a pitch and got hurt in Saturday’s game against the Norfolk Tide which they won 5-2. Juan Fransisco was tearing the ball up before he got called up to the major league. He had like 6 HR in his last 7 games.
    Chris Valaika is doing good in Triple A this year, he is hitting .299 with 4 HR and 46 RBI.Last but not last Yonder Alonso, who is batting .297 with 9 HR and 44 RBI in 79 games played. BTW, but how do you get autographs at GABP?
