Re: Fanhouse.com Top 100 Prospects
Yeah, I think Alonso, Frazier, and Leake are pretty close to spot on and understand the site's reluctance to move Chapman into the top of the list based pretty much exclusively on scouting reports and little eye to eye witnessing. (Though I think Chapman's pure stuff is much better than, say, Martin Perez at #9.)
Having four prospects inside the top 61 is pretty daggone good, IMO, and a real shout out to the top level of Reds' prospectdom. That they also have, like, 45 more options that could make the majors in some capacity pretty much confirms the twin strengths of the system.
BTW, Zach Stewart is at # 60, one spot ahead of Mike Leake.
