Re: Baseball America: Pioneer League Top 20 Prospects (6 Reds)
The 2012 Billings team has been compared by some to the 2006 Mustangs in terms of depth of quality talent. That club had Stubbs, Heisey, Valaika, Dorn, Francisco, Jordan Smith, Josh Roenicke, Justin Turner, Travis Webb and a number of players that were solid low-minors types like Logan Parker and Jason Louwsma. Most of those players moved up to Dayton in 2007 and the Dragons started the year by going 24-5. I am hoping the similarities are valid.
Nice to hear. Seems to me the 2012 Billings group has significantly better pitching than the 2006 group. If they line up Stephenson, Guillon, Moscot, Langfield, Cisco and Romano at Dayton -- they've got a prospect rich 6 man rotation! (Which means they won't all be there, of course.)
