Re: Reds Top Prospects- August 2010 Edition
Pretty much the same as others.
#1 - Chapman - No brainer
#2A - Mesoraco - Being a C gives him the edge for me.
#2B - Alonso - I see he and Mes' value ultimately pretty close in the long run.
#4 - Cozart - being a SS and having solid value on offense and defense is a big plus.
#5 - Frazier - I suspect it was just an injury that caused his production problems but that armbar still makes me a bit uneasy. But I love his makeup and I think he will eventually be our next starting 3B, and a solid one at that.
#6 - Yorman - Would love to rank him higher but he is so far away yet.
#7 - Hamilton - The kids talent is just so off the charts, it's highly unlikely he reaches that ceiling but if he does he's the only guy who could be higher than anyone but Aroldis and Yorman.
#8 - Grandal - Yeah I know he hasn't signed and my bro-in-law believes he won't get signed I'm not completely convinced of that.
#9 - Boxberger - Still not real high on him really but he has a pretty good ceiling, just wonder if he is the next Sean Watson or not.
10 - Joseph - How do you not like this guy, he'd be at least above Boxberger (if not much higher) if he had any shot at starting.
Francisco - Somewhere between 10-15 with guys like Soto, LaMarre, Duran and even though he's had alot of injury issues I don't want to yet give up on Lotzkar.
