    I am not sure anyone may truly realize how much talent is in this system right now.

    In addition to having internal competition, another benefit is having players who were carrying big loads now may feel more free of pressure to do more than they should,

      I don’t doubt we have much more position talent in the organization. I’m not so sure we have more pitching talent in the minors. We graduated a lot of pitching to majors last year and upper levels of the minors are very light on high end pitching prospects. The 2020 and 2021 drafted pitchers aren’t looking very favorable so there is a huge gap. We’re going to need some of Phillips, Williamson, Abbott, Roa, or Boyle to show up soon or the rebuild will take much longer.

        I think there is solid to above average talent, as was shown at Dayton before promotions to AA and injuries to Bonnin, Proctor, etc. i also think the Daytona rotation has been quite good and possibly overlooked, again prior to promotions. Javi Rivera is certainly a deep sleeper, followed by Aguiar. And Petty is a first rounder, Top 100 draftee. So, yes, not upper level outside of Williamson. But there is very good talent, and IMO enough to flesh out the back end of the ML rotation and/or bullpen.

    • William sweetweiner

      We have one team in the entire farm system with a winning record. If the talent is so overwhelming the record would reflect that.

      • Doug Gray

        A lot of talent was added in the last three weeks, so the talent today isn’t exactly reflective of the records on the season.

    Maybe Cam Collier and EDLC and the rest can hit enough to overcome what appears to be diminishing quality of the pitchers. Or the Reds could look at the Ashcraft approach and realize they need more of that and less of the strike everyone out mindset.

    • Tony Cloninger

      I agree. Less trying to go max effort and invite more injury. More walks it seems as well. The walk rates on pitchers at all levels is disturbing.

    Luis Mey has a 3.00 ERA over his last 15 appearances going back to June 8th. Nice to see from the hardest thrower in the reds minors

    Attended Lookouts game last night – really wanted to see DeLa Cruz live. The Athleticism is certainly there. He was robbed of a HR in his first AB, but not much else in a couple of other crucial AB situations. The little things really stood out to me: Tampa Bay affiliate worked quickly and commanded the K zone from the bump. They were not over powering velocity wise, but effective keeping the hitters off stride. The Reds, not so much. AB, the visitors showed a willingness and ability to cut down their swings and put the ball in play! Lookouts had a bases loaded, 2 out situation where DeLa Cruz went down swinging for the fences and two innings where a lead off double did not score. It’s baseball, but couldn’t help but think it exactly the same APPROACH fans see in Cincy — big swings and big misses far too often. If you are not going to work on it in AA, then how do you expect them to produce in the Majors. Lookouts gave up 10 walks on the night – Biscuits issued 2. Montgomery stole 3 bases – Reds caught a 4th attempt at the plate on a double steal. Lookouts had 2 throwing errors – none for the Visitors. Unfortunately, sloppy baseball by the Lookouts
