    Wow, it is really obvious there is a lot more talent in the minor league teams since the draft and trades were done. More winning as well, which I think will be a lot more apparent next year.

    I don’t remember a time where the reds had so much young talent from the top of the organization on down. I hope the MLB team get a news field crew for next year that will promote a more aggressive base running and tighter defensive game plan because the athleticism is finally starting to show it hand in this organization.


        It certainly seems as if Daytona will be stacked next year, and AAA to, once some of the AA guys graduate up.

        It’s mind boggling. And I’ve paid attention since the 80’s!!

    Another benefit of having such a strong farm system is occasionally prospects can be used to acquire a proven vet or two.

  3. Matt

    After a rough first start in A+, Chase Petty’s last 2: 9 IP, 2 BB, 10 K, .472 opp OPS, 3 ER.

    I think Art Warren is about ready to rejoin Cincinnati’s bullpen.

    Friedl and Steer need to be in Cincinnati. In a season as south as this, see what they can do everyday. We know what Albert Almora and Matt Reynolds are. Use this time to see if you can make Senzel into a super utility type role.

    • Junker George

      Agreed. Very disappointed in Senzel’s ability. I’d say he’s had his shot and there’s not much more to see.

      • Frostgiant

        Unfortunately, It seems that way. I thought Senzel was a sure thing.

    Where is the farm system is Logan Tanner, catcher out of Mississippi State.

    • JaxDan

      Logan Tanner played last night for Daytona Beach and is batting .125.
