From today's ESPN prospects chat...

John (Burlington, Ky)

Todd Frazier...all star or above average regular?
Jim Callis
(2:53 PM)

Those are kind of the same thing, aren't they. I don't think he'll be a perennial all-star, but my gut says he will be an above-average player with a couple of all-star appearances.

Ollie (Chicago)

Over under MLB 300 AB's for Todd Frazier in 2010?
Jim Callis

Under, because there's no obvious opening for him. But once the Reds get him in their lineup, he'll be there for a while.

Other Reds questions answered...

a.) Odds Aroldis Chapman claims 5th spot for start of 2010 in Cincy?b.) Odds Aroldis Chapman becomes an effective mlb starter in2010?c.) Odds Aroldis Chapman develops into a # 1 at some point in hid career?

I'm a little less optimistic about Chapman than most. He has a great arm but needs refinement and didn't even dominate in Cuba's league. I'd be surprised if he made the Opening Day roster, and I don't think he'll make a major impact in 2010. I'll take the under on him developing into a No. 1 starter, too--I think he's more thrower than pitcher. I think it's more likely he becomes a star closer.

Yonder Alonso for Reid Brignac? Make Sense? Who wins?
Jim Callis

That deal would help both teams in using surplus to shore up a weakness. I think Brignac would mean more to the Reds than Alonso would to the Rays.

I am not very high on Reid Brignac.

I am not very high on Reid Brignac.

Me either. Solid prospect? Yes. Better than Zack Cozart? I have my doubts. No way I trade someone for him before I see how Cozart does at AAA.

I certainly wouldn't trade Alonso for Brignac straight up, and I do like Brignac. But yeah I am pretty high on Frazier also.
