A good argument. Look at all the players drafted/signed by the Reds either playing for the Reds or other teams. And it's not like we're talking 10 years ago.
Leake, Bailey, Cueto
Lecure, Ondrusek, Chapman
Votto, Cozart, Frazier, Stubbs, Heisey, Bruce, Hanigan, Mesoraco
Alonso, Grandal, Boxberger, T. Wood
This also accounts to why so many positions are blocked at the major league level too.
