I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.

  1. Wow, the BHam mania has certainly subsided. While BHam is certainly not a bust, he certainly doesn’t appear to be on track for major league readiness by 2014.

    After a very poor hitting performance to start the AAA season, covering 9 series, 30 games, 4/4/13 through 5/9/13 with a slash line of .198/.260/.273, BHam had a very strong uptick in his hitting performance for 7 series, 27 games, from 5/10/13 through 6/7/13 with a slash line of .296/.369/.409. Unfortunaltely BHam didn’t maintain that improvement and for the last 4 series, 14 games, regressed to a .218/.218/.309 slash line.

    I hope BHam can use the 2nd half of the AAA season and the pending September call up to better establish a consistently positive performance.

  2. The young, low level OF prospects are establishing a serious reputation within the Reds’ organization. Their development over the next 2 seasons will be interesting and critical to any continued success of the major league club.

    Rk 21 (R) .417/.500/.667 in 12 AB for Phillip Ervin
    Rk 20 (R) .385/.429/.385 in 13 AB for Jonathan Reynoso
    A- 20 (L) .286/.387/.481 in 231 AB for Jesse Winker
    A- 21 (R) .288/.320/.496 in 240 AB for Junior Arias
    A+ 22 (L) .281/.386/.459 in 135 AB for Juan Silva
    A+ 21 (R) .251/.319/.470 in 251 AB for Yorman Rodriguez

    All six of these young OF prospect have questions, but all six also demonstrate some real potential.
