    Re: Reds looking toward future

    I would think if a team is interested in him, they'd want to see him produce above low A at such an age.

    But you could be right, maybe we have already given up on him and we're hoping we can shine up those low A stats and deal him.

    I guess as long as there are GM's like DanO out there, the shell game is not such a bad idea.

He can deal with skipping over rookie ball. I mean heck, last year Brandon Roberts played in rookie ball as a 20 year old 7th round pick, then this year skipped right over Dayton and is an all star in the FSL. I think sending Stubbs to rookie ball is just a bad sign that they drafted a guy they doesnt have the talent to play in the Midwest league.
    Are you serious? It's a bad sign?

    The Reds drafted Stubbs yet they sent him to Billings because he was a bad pick? Think about your logic for one second.

    Of course the Reds feel that Stubbs has the talent for the Midwest league but, as of now they want him to dominate a lower level. Do you really see otherwise? Anything else defies logic.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Well why does every other team feel its fine to start college first rounders out in Single A ball or higher, but the Reds with a top 10 pick are sending their guy to the Pioneer league?

    Ryan Braun was taken 5th overall and started in Rookie ball. He was only there for 10 games but he was still there. I know its only one example but i dont see it as a big ordeal as long as he does fine and they move him up if after a few games.

    Gotcha, thebaseballcube did not list his stats for a rookie team on their site, so maybe there were other guys and they didnt list those stats either.
