Pre-Season Profile

Manager

Scott's a fairly conservative manager in most respects. He lets good baserunners run; if his team doesn't have good baserunning skills, he looks pretty conventional. He's a bit more likely than most managers to call for an intentional pass.

He's been very successful.


First Round Draft Selections

  • Drew Stubbs (2006, eighth player selected)

Team Age Information

  • Average Team Age: 22.1
  • Pitchers: 22.1

  • Youngest Player on the Team: Juan Francisco (born 6/24/1987)

Where they played last season

This summary is based on the team's opening day roster and will not be revised to reflect roster changes.

For all practical purposes, the 2007 Dragons are last summer's Billings Mustangs.

Team        League              W/L    Place    Hitters Pitchers
                                      (Teams)
Sarasota    Florida State (A+) 66/73   10(12)       0      1
Dayton      Midwest (A)        67/73    9(14)       1      3
Billings    Pioneer (R+)       51/25    1(8)       11      7
Reds        Gulf Coast (R)     18/34   13(13)       3      4

A handful of these guys played at two levels last season and are counted twice in this table. No one played above Class A, and all were Reds farmhands last year. Two of these guys played for Cincy's Dominican farm team in 2006.
