  1. No doubt Hermida is establishing himself as a premier AAAA guy. Given his high draft position not that many years ago, he might end up making a nice deal sealer throw in for some team willing to play him every day just to see if he could find it in the MLB

  2. I was at the bats game yesterday and klnker did not look very sharp. A lot of hard hit balls against him. Brent Clevlen is a pretty good hitter of what I saw yesterday. Juan Fransisco is absolutely horrible on defense. There was a few balls hit to him that he didn’t make an effort to get them. Yonder had a pretty good night the plate, he was hitting all line drives.

  3. I don’t want to overreact, but I’m getting really eager to see Yonder Alonso and Zack Cozart get a shot with the big club. Particularly, Alonso who has a line of .383/.510/.892; that includes an April where his OPS was only .748. At minimum, you could begin by platooning him with Chris Heisey. Of course, this would essentially mean giving up on Fred Lewis.

    That being said I don’t want to act like bringing these guys up would be a cure-all for the Reds issues of late. Especially, their inconsistent pitching. However, I don’t know how long you wait through June without making some kind of move.
