The system is clearly heading in the right direction. The Reds have probably the best trio of prospects of anyone in baseball between Homer Bailey, Jay Bruce and Joey Votto who was pretty much all 3 top 25 prospects, with two of them being top 10 prospects.
They also have some real solid arms in the system with guys like Cueto, Wood, Watson and Fisher in starters roles. The bullpen arms are always interesting between Pelland, Medlock and Guevara in AA and then Salmon and McBeth in their AAA/Cincinnati roles. There are some guys in Dayton that are really worth keeping an eye on with Francisco, Stubbs, Valaika and Turner. Danny Dorn, Carson Kainer, Adam Rosales and Craig Tatum are all having good seasons in Sarasota....
The Reds 3 years ago couldn't dream of a system with the type of talent this current one does.
