Re: Red's minor league prospects not making a very good showing
Chatter, I don't understand the title of this thread. Are you saying the minor leaguers the Reds have called up have not made a very good showing? Because, if so, I hugely disagree. Cueto, Bruce, Votto have been been as advertised. Thompson just had a nice first start. That leaves Bailey, who for whatever reason has regressed. Pretty darn fine showings from where I am sitting.
And, as blitz points out, there is genuine talent coursing through this system, and guys on the way that are going to help someone. I would have included Drew Stubbs, Travis Wood, Brandon Waring, and Sam Lecure on Blitz's list as well. Shaun Cumberland too, for that matter. The Montano pitcher in Dayton (Cordero's cousin) is intriguing as well. Sean Watson is worth watching too.
The youth on the major league team and talent throughout the minors are THE reason to be happy about this team, in my opinion.
