Re: Red's minor league prospects not making a very good showing
its true the reds have graduated a lot of top talent, and that the system will take an overall "hit" in the rankings because of this. But thats not a bad thing. It means we actually graduated some talent - which has proven difficult for the Reds in the past.
Still, I see a lot of things to be excited about. They may not have as many players in the tier of Bruce/Votto/Cueto..
But Frazier, Waring, Valaika, Stubbs, Mesoraco, Soto, Roenicke, Wood, Maloney, Jukich, potentially Alonso, at al. gives me plenty of things to be excited about. The depth is still exponentially better than it has been in years. Its just a bit thinner at the top now due to the promotions. No big deal. The farm is still in good shape.
