True but even with Winker, they dont see him as a Top 200 prospect and claim there are scouts that prefer Reynoso to Winker and think the former has a better shot at becoming a big league regular than Winker.
I like Winker and agree that if he becomes a middle of the order bat, this draft was fairly successful. However, I'm just noting that BA has some harsh words and observations for the 4 guys the Reds drafted in the top 100.
