I like Frazier. I like Soto (rookie ball). Maloney looked to be making strides and has regressed lately. I like Jukich, but not so sure he will make it to the Bigs.
Drew Stubbs will never make it to the Bigs. Count on it. Another overhyped player.
I liked Waring, but he is striking out at a ridiculous clip.
I do like Herrera. Nice pickup. Not so sure about Roenicke's control.
It just seems like the best has moved up, and there's not much ready behind them.
I'm glad you have a crystal ball (re: Stubbs). Can you give me the winning Powerball numbers for next week?
It'd be amazing to have superior depth at every minor league affiliate. Thing is, there are maybe 5-7 teams in all of baseball that have extreme depth while having a great team at the MLB level. Given all the recent promotions, I think the Reds are still pretty well positioned. Especially when you consider that the Reds had a pretty good draft this year. Within a year, the Reds farm system will be ranked highly again I believe.
