Re: Individual talent was there at Fifth Third Field (DDN article)
Some interesting prospects. Serrano is the most interesting, maybe because he was simply the best player despite being over-aged. Joseph, I think was a good pick in the third round and has good stuff (but not as good as that third rounder they got in '08, what was that kid's name? How did he do this year?). Rojas is a big league defensive shortstop who improved dramatically as a hitter and might be a Rey Olmedo type player. Coddington was a big upgrade on Mesoraco and could be a Ryan Hanigan type. I like Mendez and agree that he could add power. Fellhauer, not so sure about. Good Single-A player, maybe a Brady Clark. Maybe a Chris Denorfia. Ravin made some big strides and could go either way. Oliveras is a very interesting prospect to me. I might like him as well or better than some of the older guys like Sappelt, Wiley, and Puckett. Sulbaran was the big disapointment for me but he is still young so lets wait and see. I thought losing Andrew Means really hurt the team.
