    Got home about midnight from Dragons game. Very disappointing again. Had bases loaded with less than 2 outs in ninth and tenth and could not score. Bennet threw the ball as well as I have seen him in two years.

    I believe Michael Siani needs to go to Billings here in a few weeks. It reminds me a little of Jose Siri in 2016. He came to Dayton after a year in Billings and just was not ready, went back to Billings had a very nice season. Returned to Dayton in 2017 and had his record setting year. I think this approach could help Michael.

    Glad to hear Alexis Diaz injury issue is a hamstring and not a knee. Seeing it happen I feared the worst.

      I was there as well with my boys, Ozuna almost the hero, but the HR ball was foul and then he K’d. Four shots to win and we got K, K, K, fly out. With as well as they were bunting almost wish they would have tried a suicide squeeze. Even with 2 outs the 3rd baseman was playing deep, I think Siani could have bunted for an RBI single if they had the confidence to send the runners. Risky? Sure, but it’s not like the Dragons are full of hot bats right now.

      Lyon Richardson looked like a different person vs the first time I saw him pitch this year. Was 93-94 early, 90-92 when he got pulled in the fifth. I assume he hit a pitch count because he was doing well when they pulled him. He was spotting his mid 70’s curve and moving it around the plate changing eye levels, and he had a nice K on an 84 mph changeup. Got hit hard a few times but kept everything in the park and didn’t get rattled. I’m much more encouraged with his possibility after seeing him again.

      Brian Rey is just a good ball player. Not sure he ever makes it above AA, but in a game where a lot of Dragons didn’t seem to know what they were doing at the plate, he gave consistent good at bats.

      Siani definitely looks over matched at the plate. Lost his cool when he struck out to end the 9th as well. I think some time in Billings in the friendly confines of the Pioneer league might be exactly what he needs.

      Mariel Bautista is another guy who looks like he is pressing. Loads of natural talent, but just not very refined.

        That is third time l ve seen Richardson pitch. In the fourth or fifth inning he kind of hits a wall. When he does it is batting practice for the opposition. The last batter he faced there in the fourth crushed a single. I thought they removed him because they saw it coming.

    So long Taylor sparks. Reds 2014 draft was a baffling bad one at the time and has proven to be over time. Best player may be Brian OGreaty who is a non-prospect if Blandino never gets right.

    The good news is that Scott Moss only walked 1 batter in his start yesterday. The bad news is he only pitched 3 innings, allowing 3 ER.

  4. Matthew O'Neal

    Really enjoying seeing the improvements in Richardson’s performances. 1st 5 games in Dayton: in 20.1 innings, 7.08 ERA and a .915 OPS against. Last 4 games: in 19 innings, 1.89 ERA and a .595 OPS against. Strikeout and walk numbers good for both chunks of games.

    Some love for Okey please!! His development and Tyler Steve’s are crucial for the next few years. Okey had good reviews over his D so it’s comforting to see an offensive wake up.

    • jbonireland

      Both doing well as they move up the food chain, if this keeps up could have our catchers for next 5 or 6 years.

    • The Duke

      Even with his monster day he has a .699 OPS this year so far over 76-78 plate appearances. Still a long way from consistentcy

  6. Chuck Norris

    If, and it may be a big if, the reds want to call up O’Grady, who do they remove from the 40 man?

    • Big Will

      Maybe they sit Votto on a vision issue. He can’t seem to see a strike right down the middle of the plate. An optometrist visit and maybe a 10 day rehab will help him get back to being Votto and in the meantime we take advantage of a hot bat.

      Excuse the tongue in cheek humor though most humor has some parts to be true…or wishful thinking.

      • MK

        I have been thinking of a vision issue as well. He has been whining about a lot of called strikes the strike zone box says are strikes.

      • donny

        It’s either his vision or his bat speed. It seems his timing is off. Maybe he has gotten slower with his swing and hasn’t been able to adjust yet. He has been behind on everything and every pitch for the most part. Seems here lately the only thing he can put in play is a short check swing.

        But i am not a expert, but just throwing things out there of course.
