2014-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm a Reds fan who lives in Louisville. Who would you recommend I focus on when I go to Bats games? I know Stephenson is a big deal, but he isn't there yet. Who should I put on my radar in the Reds' system who will be in AAA at some point this summer? I can't just cheer for Corky Miller sightings forever!
(Daniel from Louisville)
I can't help you out much. The Louisville roster isn't great. Triple-A in general can be hard to watch, at least from a prospect standpoint. There's so much major league depth there among guys who either no longer qualify as prospects or where never good enough to qualify in the first place. Lots of Quad-A guys in Louisville. The good news is that Stephenson will be worth the wait.

Guys, you should see this sandwich. (Jeff Moore)
2011-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please ranl these three Cincinnat icons by sexyness: C Trent, Corky Miller,& cincinnati chili.
(Kyle from Cincinnati)
C. Trent is the only one worth ranking. Easy choice. Trent is awesome. (Jason Parks)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)I thought you'd answer "Yankees backup C" :)
(Wade from TX)
That would have been a fun answer, but although I tend to bitch about carrying an automatic out on the bench, I'm not sure how high our expectations should really be. As I wrote in today's You Could Look It Up, I'm looking for something better than Kevin Cash/Corky Miller, but much more than that probably isn't too realistic... John Flaherty hit .259/.291/.461 from 2003-2004, which is basically Miguel Olivo, obviously not great, but also not horrible given the alternatives. He had some big hits, too... (Steven Goldman)
