    Yeah, OF looks pretty deep. Hamilton, Ervin, Winker and YRod. Then you have Waldrop, Lutz, Arias, Medina, Garcia, Silva, Matthews, LaMarre, Aquino, Duran...lots of guys with great tools but high risk, some good power possibilities, some good defenders and CFers - most will fail but there are a lot of solid prospects from starter potential to 4th OFer types. Good depth for the failure winnowing.
    No - I am not from State Farm!

    I agree with you on the depth of the future. Part if me is glad that the Reds didn't go out and pick up a new expensive big name contract this year. It'll give them money to resign the pitchers. Once the next group of prospects comes up and mixes with what the Reds already have, the window everyone talks about coukd be opened wider and longer than 2010-2013.

    Do "experts" have like a nervous tick when talking about Phil Ervin? In every one of those comments by Parks he mentioned Ervin having to "stay on the field" "stay healthy" etc. Is the rule if you have an injury in college you are immediately considered an injury risk for the rest of your life?

    Ervin also missed the last 3 weeks of August with Dayton.

    Ervin was never considered fully healthy this season.

    How is he looking going into 2014?

    Organizational Rankings.

    16. Cincinnati Reds
    Farm System Ranking in 2013: 15
    2014 Top Ten Prospects: Link
    State of the System: The top tier of the farm is flashy with loud tools and high projections, and the middle contains a healthy amount of solid-average types with realistic major-league futures.
    Top Prospect: Robert Stephenson (22)
    Breakout Candidates for 2014: Ben Lively and Jose Ortiz
    Prospects on the BP 101: 3
    Must-See Affiliate: Double-A Pensacola
    Prospects to See There: Robert Stephenson, Phillip Ervin, Yorman Rodriguez, Jesse Winker, Jon Moscot, Ben Lively, Michael Lorenzen, Seth Mejias-Brean
    Farm System Trajectory for 2015: Up. Losing Hamilton isn’t going to break the farm, especially with impact names like Stephenson, Winker and Ervin moving up the chain, and if the aforementioned middle tier of talent can carve out their prospect identities, the system as a whole will improve as a result.

    So BP thinks Phillip Irvin will start out in Pensacola?

    I think they just expect him, and Winker, Lively, and Mejias-Brean to end up there at some point. I could be wrong though.

    No, this is correct per Parks. He lists players that he believes will be at that level at some point during the year, not limited to just beginning the year there.
