    Bruce: "Most Likely to Succeed"

    As part of their midseason minor league breakdowns, Hardballtimes named Jay Bruce the Midwest League's Most Likely to Succeed.

    All Star Most Likely to Succeed

    Justin Upton is the easy pick here, but I'm going with Dayton's Jay Bruce instead. Bruce is a five-tool player that was also among the most productive hitters in the Pioneer League last year. Bruce just turned 19 a couple months ago, and he already has over 60 extra-base hits as a professional in the Cincinnati Reds system.
    This is their ML and Sally breakdown: http://www.hardballtimes.com/main/ar...outh-atlantic/

    When all is said and done more is said than done.

    Nice.

    So it looks like we'll probably have a decent list of prospects to BA's season-ending league top 20 lists.

    Rookie/Pioneer = (1, for sure) Stubbs
    MWL = (4) Bruce, Wood, Cueto, Ward
    FSL/SL = (1) Bailey
    SL = (1-2) Votto, Shafer?

    Thoughts?

    Just that it appears we have signs of life in the low minors. Hopefully most of it advances and the drafts keep reloading the low minors. I would love to have a well stocked ML system by say 2008.
