Re: 01/05/2011 Baseball America's Top-10 Reds Prospects
This article must've been thrown together pretty quickly, as it's pretty sloppy with typos:
Homer Bailey listed as the Reds top draft pick in 2004 and 2005
Several other grammatical errors/typos in the text
More importantly, while I like seeing Hamilton succeed (and like him as a player), I worry that speedy middle-of-the-diamond players are constantly overvalued as prospects. See Felix Pie, Fernando Martinez, Carlos Gomez, Chin-lung Hu, Carlos Trunifiel, Luis Montanez, and many, many others.
I echo others on Mesoraco not getting much love from BA, possibly due to their slamming of him in the past.
One thing to note again, is how weak the pitching is across the minor leagues. Obviously a big part of that is that all the young pitchers are now with the big club, but I'd like to see the Reds replenish the system with pitching (and a power hitting 3B or COF) in this year's draft.
