Isiah Gilliam racked up 11 total bases for Chattanooga that included two home runs, Chuckie Robinson crushed his first Triple-A home run in Louisville, Elly De La Cruz did something for the first time in nearly three years and Nick Quintana picked up a walk-off hit in extra-innings in one of Dayton’s games as part of a perfect evening at the plate, and Daytona got home runs from Tyler Callihan, Jamal O’Guinn, and Hayden Jones in their win.

    Well the Dayton Dragons now officially resemble the1964 Philadelphia Phillies by blowing a big lead to blow the first half championship. It’s not enough to put talent on a team you also have to encourage and teach them to win. And who beat then but the Dodgers HighA team. See any correlation here?

      Not really, no. Dayton has a very good team and simply got outplayed. Someone’s got to win.

        Dayton has very good talent and that got them through early but a team with less talented prospects ended up passing them like they were standing still. The last two weeks have been depressing to watch. 400 foot homers are great to watch but so is fundamental baseball and fundamentals win the games.

      What are you talking about? The Dragons are 39-26. They not only know how to win, but they do. And yesterday they split a doubleheader with a 4-3 win and a 3-0 loss. Competitive games. Nothing to see here.

      Every party has a pooper, that’s why we invited you. MK. The party pooper

        Nobody’s more in tune with the Dragons than MK, who is a valued member here. Check your language and approach if you want to stick around. Surprised Doug’s left this post up.

        Agreed Tom. Thanks for posting.. By the way, MK is correct. Dayton got off to a huge start, and then has played roughly. 500 ball the last 30 days or so.

        Andrew’s post should be deleted.

      Aw, lighten up Tom. “Pooper” is not a bad word, and being disappointed in the Dragon’s more recent performances is not unreasonable. Not everything in the world is smiles and roses. Sometimes it is appropriate to call out a team, even if you happen to like that team.

      The Dragons are supremely talented, and we all want them to succeed.

        It was a baseless, direct insult in response to a qualified baseball opinion, which isn’t something I’ve seen tolerated here.

    Both last year and this year Tyler Callihan has been in Low A and has slashed approx. 295 / 350 / 440
    Is there any reason the Reds are keeping in him Low A? At this point, he’s older than league average.

    Same with Connor Phillips. Last year in High A and this year in High A he has produced a high rate of K’s and a low rate of Hits. Any reason to keep him in Dayton?

      Callihan and Vellojin both started there because they were coming back from injury. I figure Callihan will probably get promoted Monday. Maybe Phillips gets promoted too. Not a great last outing. Could see him stay down another week or 2.

      He’s played 51 total games over those two years. And as of a week ago he was hitting .213/.286/.307. He’s hit .500 over the last week to raise his line.

    McGarry 2 – 5 with a double! The kid keeps hitting, as is his teammate Gilliam, picking up 4 hits, with 2 HR’s!! Hopefully De La Cruz, and Phillips will be joining the AA team. I don’t want to rush them, but I think those 2 are ready. They’d likely be the best Reds minor league team to watch.

    Williamson, Abbott, Phillips would make a nice 1, 2, 3.

    Siani, McLain, De La Cruz, Gilliam, McGarry also sound like a good 1 -5

        Yes, McLain’s K rate needs to come down. Maybe having Elly batting behind him will help him not only get better pitches, but also motivate him to improve with the direct competition between the 2.

        Barrero with 45 K in roughly 108-115 PA, or roughly 40% K rate.
