The organizational depth has certainly taken a hit with the recent trades, but in his midseason update of the top 120 prospects, John Sickels
had 5 Reds listed (Billy Hamilton and 4 pitchers). That seems to indicate the Reds could put together a pretty decent package of prospects if they really want to get a deal done. I'd be interested in knowing which teams match up best with the Reds in terms of the prospects the Reds have and the positional needs of the other teams.
