Re: John Sickels Midseason Top 120 (no draft picks included)
Hamilton gets some helium because he plays SS. If he were an OF I have no doubt his ranking would be lower.
These lists tend to be fluid. I'd like to it be broken up by level of play (a list for AAA-AA, another for A ball, another for short-season and rookie ball). For instance, if Gerrit Cole fails to dominate in AA then he's going to drop. It doesn't really mean he's less of a prospect, just that he's taking time to adjust. Yet these big lists tend to gravitate toward the flavor of the day.
Nice thing about the Reds is how quickly the system is restocking after the Latos deal. To me, that's a mark of a strong system.
