Farmers Only: On watching birds leave the nest


It was very exciting to see Zack Cozart make his debut last night.  It wasn't just that he played well (that was a slick defensive play to save a run in the 3rd), it is also the hope and promise of...

Farmers Only: How about a hand for BK?


It's nice to be back, but I'd like to offer a hearty thank you to BK for covering every FO post for the last 12 days.  You're a mensch, BeeK. Louisville won 3-2 on a walk off sac fly by Todd...

Farmers Only: Back in action


It's been pretty quiet around the FO offices lately, what with all the all star breaks occurring at the same time.  BK has even been taking 3 hour "liquid lunches" every day.  But it's time for him...

Farmers Only: A suddenly crowded pitching staff


Homer Bailey and Aroldis Chapman both had relatively successful rehab outings last night.  Sam LeCure seems ready to return.  Dontrelle Willis is throwing rocks.  A month ago this team was...

Farmers Only Farmer's Market: Some new faces


Rookie league ball begins today, and we'll have a post up about the two Reds rookie teams in the near future.  Another item of note is that, while he didn't make the "Fresh" list, Dontrelle Willis...

Farmers Only: Rehab Hiccups


Louisville lost 3-1.  Homer Bailey made a rehab start and gave up 11 hits in 4.1 IP.  He struck out 2 and didn't walk anyone.  Of the 11 hits, 10 were singles.  Zack Cozart hit his 7th homer,...

Farmers Only: Maybe we should start arguing about Dave Sappelt


Dave Sappelt's lengthy absence because of an oblique injury rendered him somewhat the forgotten man in the LF debate.  While we contemplated the wisdom of replacing Fred Lewis with Yonder Alonso,...

Farmers Only Farmer's Market: Once more, with feeling


First things first, some promotions. Henry Rodriguez is now in Carolina, and both Kyle Lotzkar and Stalin Gerson are now with the Dayton Dragons. Expect more promotions in the next few weeks. S...

Farmers Only: The legend of Billy Hamilton grows


Billy Hamilton keeps adding notches to his speed belt.  Last night he stole 3 more bases, bringing his total to 48 in 56 games.  But what made last night special was that he stole home for the...

Farmers Only: The AAA drumbeat gets louder


Louisville split a double header, winning the first game 5-0 and losing the second, 6-2.  Dontrelle Willis was back on the mound in the first game and looked good, throwing 4.2 shutout innings,...

Farmers Only: A good(?) start for Edinson Volquez


Louisville won 5-1. In his second start since being demoted, Edinson Volquez threw 6.2 IP and gave up just 1 run. However, he only struck out 2 and walked 4.  Only 69 of his 112 pitches were...

Farmers Only: State of the Farm, 6/2/2011


Your first FO:SOTF comes to you a little later this year.  I blame BK.  Actually, I blame a relevant big league team as well as one of the most volatile 40 man roster situations of recent memory. ...

Farmers Only: Brad Boxberger: Bullpen Help?


As you have probably read by now, Dusty Baker did not pinch hit for Chad Reineke in last night's game because he didn't think he had enough bullpen arms to get him through the rest of the game. ...

Farmers Only: Suddenly, Aroldis Chapman's successful rehab becomes vitally important


When Aroldis Chapman went on the disabled list last Monday, my first thought was that the bullpen was fine without him and I wished they would just let him start for a while in AAA.  Baseball is a...

Farmers Only: Now cracks a noble bat. Goodnight, sweet prince; And flights of angels sing thee back to AAA


In case you haven't heard, Todd Frazier is back in Louisville after the tiniest of cups of coffee.  My cousin gets the shakes when she drinks decaf, and I'm pretty sure she'd have been fine after...

Farmers Only Farmer's Market: Roster Moves Edition


We recently focused a Farmer's Market on potential roster moves and who might get called up, but after the recent disastrous and frustrating stretch of baseball, combined with Edinson Volquez's...

This game gave me a migraine, or I would've written this last night. Reds lose, 5-4.


Joe Nuxhall Honorary Memorial Star of the Game Jay Bruce takes home his second JNHMSoG in a row.  Hova was the only player on either team with multiple hits, as he went 2-4 with a double and run...

Farmers Only: Billy Hamilton might not hit, but he sure can run


  Louisville lost 7-4.  Mike Leake got hit around in his first ever minor league start (the AFL doesn't count!), giving up 5 runs on 8 hits in 5.1 IP.  Hopefully he shakes it off like a...

Farmers Only: Juan Duran is learning how to hit


Louisville won 5-2 to push their record on the year to 20-14.  Jerry Gil and Jordan Smith combined for 3 shutout innings out of the pen.  Yonder Alonso was 2-3 with 2 walks, Todd Frazier was 2-4...

Farmers Only: Can we have our East coast A+ affiliate back, please?


So I went to the Reds game with BK, tHan, and jch24 and just got back (about 12:45) .  So I go to do the minors write-up, and stupid Bakersfield still isn't done playing.  Ok, so there's a tornado...
