    Going 307/262 so far this year isn't going to make him go higher.

    Little suprised that Luke Hudson doesnt get any mentions (not for the prospect list, but in general). I see as a starter he has his ERA down to 4 with a great K/9 rate. If he could cut down on his walks, I think he could really turn into a productive ML level. I see him eventually as a middle reliever, forming a great power combo with Booker.

    Hudson isn't a prospect.

    I realize that, and neither is Booker. Im sorry I went a little off subject, but if Booker gets mentions on this list, then the fact remains I'm a little suprised Hudson didnt/doesnt.

    No prob, Hudson is coming off Labrum, so I don't hold much hope, Booker, he is Aramboles Jr.

    Who do you guys think will be in baseball america's top 100 prospects?

    I think Ede E., is for sure top 25. Gardner, maybe top 50. Wagner, if he is still eligible will be top 50. Blanco, maybe top 100. Pauly, small chance. Homer maybe at the low end, but probably not until next year. Moseley, is very underrated he shoud at least be considered. After that nobody but Gruler even gets a mention.

    Re: Your Top 10 prospects in the Reds system?

    Here is what you do for Claussen. You send him a video of Glavine and if he has any control at all he will be just fine. Everyone wants Claussen to get back to 93-95 mph but I love the way lefties can take a little off their pitches and get the big outs. So if Claussen is throwing 88-91 that is fine with me as long as he has a change-up and a slower change-up, a curveball and a slower curveball. Claussen has better stuff than alot of pitchers but if he learns to take a little of his pitches instead of trying to blow the ball by people I think he could be very fine pitcher in the bigs.

    Homer isn't signed yet so I would say no too.

    Not until he's signed and has done something worthy of making the top 10. Hype alone shouldn't put him there (see: Howington, Ty and Grueler, Chris).

    i think smitherman needs to be in the Top 10. I know he was rated 7th by Baseball America.

    IMO, Felipe is not much different from Larson. They can both shine up real nice down at AAA where the pitching and pressure are not as good. As soon as they hit the stadium with the lights and the pressure, they look completely overwhelmed. What is it you see in Felipe that leads you to believe that he will come around?

    Or, are you devaluing the prospects behind him?

    highly rated due primarily to positive inertia and consistency. Now he's showing negative inertia and inconsistency. Also bad is the fact that at his age, he needs ML time and won't get it.
