Re: The Hardball Times Top 10 Prospects for 2010: Cincinnati Reds
This is the best list I've seen. Wood at 5 is too high and I don't like Mesoraco in the top 10, but the takes on Frazier and Heisey are spot on. They are OK, but probably not guys you want in LF on a winning team unless you are getting a lot of offense from a defense first spot. The Reds aren't getting that any time soon. Cozart not making the list could be telling as well, but I think he can be OK, he just won't be an offensive fix at SS (maybe against LHP he will).

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