      Looks like they are letting him play. I’m not sure the competition is that much better in AAA than it is in AA plus Lookouts will get a postseason and the Bats will not. With Nelson and Petty going there it looks like the are loading the Lookouts up. The experience of playing for a championship is better than joining a team playing out the string.

      • RedBB

        That’s simply not true. AAA teams particular this time of year are stocked by guys that have played in the Majors. Just look at the Bats about a dozen MLB players on that team. Not to mention there is always a decent amount of MLB players that are rehabbing injuries in AAA before redoing their teams. The playoff argument doesn’t hold water either as he could easily be moved down if they wanted him to play in the postseason.

      • DaveCT

        Why jerk him around by promoting then demoting Dunn? That’s not sensible for what is an arbitrary wish for him to play versus depleted AAA competition. In addition, talent (ability) isn’t the same as experience, or knowledge for that matter. AA talent is generally quite high.

      • RedBB

        AA does not = AAA talent which is what was suggested. If it was then top prospects would get sent down to AA far more often which never happens.

        Saying AA talent is quite high is not mutually exclusive to the above statement. FACT

      • RedBB

        As far as “jerking him around” I am 100% confident if you asked Dunn where he would rather be AAA or AA he would say AAA. AA callup’s happen but at a far less rate than AAA. His goal is the MLB which is far closer at AAA than AA.

    • Optimist

      Really doesn’t matter – unlikely to be called up as a Sept. roster addition. Very likely to make his debut early to mid next season if he starts well in AAA for 200-300 PAs.

      • Optimist

        From the Reds view it doesn’t matter, from Dunn’s sure, but would he rather play more games in AA (with playoffs) or fewer in AAA – I suspect he wants to play more.

        Still – his big opportunity is Spring training and/or 6-8 weeks in AAA.

    • Tony Cloninger

      You act as if not going to AAA this year means he won’t play in the majors and they are stunting his growth? Are you complaining just to complain? He could easily jump to the majors. Like you know those 2 guys who played AA last year only and then by middle of this year went from AAA to the majors. You’re dying on that hill. Slowly.

  1. Michael Wilson

    Roa 110 pitches in four innings. My arm hurts thinking about it. Dunn has to be the most pleasant success story in the organization for this season. Rodriguez and Jorge maybe settling in at Dayton.

    • Laredo Slider

      Michael, think about this…Hall of Famer Robin Roberts had 6 STRAIGHT seasons of 300+ innings pitched! That’ll never happen again.

      • Michael Wilson

        Yes Laredo, the old timers had some incredible stats. I like reading the stats of guys like Warren Spahn. Talk about longevity. At age 42 won 23 games. One season he lost 19 games and his era was in the twos. And where has the screwball gone? Nobody throws it now or is it called something else. A fav of mine is Harvey Haddux. Threw a perfect game for 12 innings and then lost the no hitter and the game in the 13th.

  2. MBS

    McGarry’s put together a good season. The power is down, but average, and on base is up. Great turn around, it would be great if he can reincorporate that power into his game.

    • DaveCT

      Have to wonder if the org emphasis on hard contact vs selling out for power is part of the equation. He is still striking out at 30% but he’s been flirting with .300/.365!.460 for awhile now.

      • MBS

        I think you’re right on the money. The start of the year was atrocious in AAA, and then in AA. No choice but to change his approach. He lost a 100 pts in slugging, even if he could just add a touch mor power back in that would go a long way to him making it to the pros at some point.

  3. MK

    With the Hurricane it might be a rough ending for Florida State League. Wonder if they would ever consider moving them up to Midwest League Stadiums to end the season. At least half the stadiums are empty every night and most have affiliates in both leagues.

  4. RedsgettingBetter

    The Reds affiliate teams as a whole have a bad streak of losses recently as long as they keep just about 3 games above .500 right now overall , after having more than 20 above .500 a month ago…Something similar to the major team…
