Fort Wayne had many, many top level college players this season (Clark, Carroll, Darnell, Dykstra, Tekotte, and the list goes on and on.).
I think the Reds send too many polished college players to Dayton in their first full season. That generally isn't more than 1 or 2 guys per year, so I don't think it says a whole lot one way or the other.
Katz and I don't always agree on players or player decisions. We had a nice discussion about Francisco tonight while watching the Bats game from the press box between innings. He is a bit higher on him than I am right now.
