Re: Who is Redszone's #1 prospect?
Alonso is likely the only potential impact guy in the high minors. Easy number 1 choice. After this it is much less clear. For me the drop is so big that the next two choices are based more on potential than production (Leake and Rodriguez). The next several are likely role players in the big leagues (but guys like FRancisco, Frazier and Heisey could be really good ones). Cozart is the wild card for me. If he can hit like he has shown flashes of, he could be a productive every day SS and that is pretty valuable.
Beats the heck out of all those years when the Reds had to sign guys for $2 or $3 Million per year to be role players.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
