Need to know

OMGReds was on hand for the Bats’ game against the Mud Hens in Toledo last night, and Todd Frazier absolutely CRUSHED a ball off the SeaGate Centre (left field) that would still be airborne if not for the building’s huge wall – his first Triple-A dong.

But what I can’t find anywhere is the approximate distance of Frazier’s bomb – it’s not in the gamer on milb.com or the courier-journal.com story.

It had to have gone at least 400 feet. Anyone see the figure anywhere? Pretty cool to absolutely club one for your first Triple-A homer … in front of your brother (who plays for the Mud Hens), no less :D

Also, thoroughly enjoyed watching Juan Francisco play for the first time. Dude is raking – .405 with three homers and 10 RBIs since getting called up from Double-A Carolina last Saturday. Which begs the question: Why do we need Rolen again? For next year, when we’re probably going to suck anyway? I would imagine Francisco will be ready by 2011.
