    On the hitting side, I'm bullish on Siani, though that's not that much of a stretch. I wonder if expecting a bounce back from Leandro Santana would be too much, considering the only place he's hit is Billings.

    On the pitching side, I like Heatherly and Naughton, though that could just be my fervent hope that a high ceiling LHP emerges this season (if the Reds don't select a SS with their first pick this year, I'm hoping they go LHP).
    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    I like the Moss pick. Didn't see much action at Florida due to injuries and a deep staff. Signed as a project worth a patient development. Tall LHP could still add velocity. AA could catapult him into a serious prospect.

    Noah Davis. 2018 11th Round pick. Had TJ in March. Old Reds drafting regime liked him well enough to make him first pick after the 10th round and give him $125K. Will probably be back in June.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Just realized on MILB Opening Day that I forgot to make any picks.

    I'm gonna cheat and go with, basically, the entire Dayton infield. It's a very intriguing group. Claudio Finol, Miguel Hernandez, Juan Martinez, and Jonathan Willems. They're all very young, especially Finol, so it's entirely possible that they all struggle but between Finol and Hernandez's contact ability and Martinez and Willems' power ability I think at least one of them will make waves and hopefully they all show something.

    He slumped badly at the end of last year but Lorenzo Cedrola is interesting to me. Gets great reviews on his CF defense, steals bases, and has a .296 batting average in the minors at just 21 years old. The FSL will be tough for a guy who already lacks power but I still think he's a sleeper.

    For pitchers, Reiver Sanmartin has gotten a bit more pub on here and I do like him but I'm somewhat partial to the other Daytona starter acquired this offseason in Ryan Lillie. Here's Troy Percival lauding the abilities of a guy who only became a pitcher in college, and had this written about him by Baseball America last May: "with a 92-95 mph fastball that reaches 97, a potential above-average slider and growing feel for a changeup, Lillie has all the components to start for the long run."

    I also quite like James Marinan. He's only 20, looks the part of a starting pitcher, and whatever you want to say about his peripherals he's got a 2.93 ERA in 70 innings so far in his short career.

    Not sure he still counts as a prospect but I think he'll be a member of the Reds rotation after the trade deadline: Lucas Sims.

    I was looking at O’Grady last year for his ability to get on base and decent power. Ervin because he always improves about midway in the season on whichever level he is at. I was too lazy or gutless to write it down though.
    Not this year.

    Okey and Sparks. That 80s techno duo will right their careers and since, like the Bengals who refuse to acknowledge when draft picks are bad mistakes, the Reds refuse to get rid of them. I will stick with them as well.
