I dunno OBM...
Looking at RedsZone's group effort to rank our prospects, there's plenty of question marks even in the Top 10, much less the rest of the list.
We all hope Yonder Alonso will prove to be the next big thing, but will he?
Frazier will probably end up being a serviceable MLB player, but IMO he won't be an everyday star. He'll be a nice guy to have in the future, but certainly not the guy you build a lineup around.
Soto's probably the biggest question mark in our Top 10...
Stubbs... well... the guy can play D, that's for sure. But, can he hit? Can he stay healthy?
Valaika is the man without a position. He won't be a SS as a MLB player, so why are they wasting his time and the organization's time playing him as one in the minors? IMO, he'll be a more legit prospect once the Reds figure out where to put him on the diamond.
After Valaika, huge drop off in talent....
IMO, the Reds farm has a lot to prove after Cueto, Votto and Bruce making the big team in 2008. There's not much left down on the farm in terms of guys that are "sure things"
