Well when B.J. Szymanski is listed as the Reds 4th best prospect in the organization (as he was in 2005), I think they begin to lose some credibility. Is Devin Mesoraco, the 18-year-old catcher who has yet to hit a lick at the professional level, really the 6th best prospect in the entire Reds organization? Or is it just that he was their 1st round pick from last year, and thus he must be one of the first guys mentioned? Stick around for a few years Doug, you'll start to get a better understanding for how things work. Your dedication to the Reds minor leagues is quite admirable, but you are still quite new to this.
