    John Sickels' Reds Top 100 Prospects

    https://theathletic.com/808011/2019/...ects-for-2019/

    I won't post any of his comments on the Reds' guys since the article is behind a paywall (highly recommended you subscribe to The Athletic if you don't btw.) But he has:

    7. Nick Senzel
    32. Taylor Trammell
    39. Hunter Greene
    49. Jonathan India
    81. Tony Santillan

    He also lists James Marinan and Mike Siani as a "Beyond the Top 100 sleepers." (These are essentially guys who, while not Top 100 by most aggregators, have breakout/top 100 potential.)

    Preett cool that the Reds acquired three starting pitchers and two power hitting OF’s, without giving up any of these guys.

    The Marinan mention is new, and cool. I wonder if he's moved ahead of Gutierrez on various lists.

    None of Jeter Downs, Shed Long, Josiah Gray, or Tanner Rainey made the top 100 or the sleepers list to boot

    It's definitely been a great offseason for Cinci, I just hope they're not done. They've built a team that projects as a low-mid 80s win squad. Why not give up those few extra dollars or maybe one of the non-Senzel/Trammell Big 5 to make that extra push to real divisional contention?

    No more half measures, Walter.

    I know you have convincingly said you are new here...but the whole “Walt and half measures” thing was a pretty hot topic on here a few years ago...
