These rankings skew way too far toward the newly drafted.
Not disagreeing but shouldn't a "prospect" be judged by how much better he can make the parent club, not by the fact that he might make the team because they have no other options? That's why I am tired of hearing about Maloney, Valaika, Dorn, etc...the Reds won't get better because of those guys, they may make the team for awhile until someone that can actually improve the team comes along....filler, not prospects. I think some of those guys you mentioned have a chance to make the Reds better however.
