    My projection of where Reds top prospects will begin 2007 season

    I'm not going to even attempt to project the 25-man rosters for all four of the Reds full season minor league teams, but I'm gonna take a crack at projecting where our better prospects (among others) will begin the 2007 season.

    Craig Tatum in Louisville? Skipping Sarasota and Chattanooga?

    Rosales in AA? I bet we see Rosales in Dayton or Sarasota playing a new position (second base probably).

    I think the chances of Obispo in Dayton are about 5000/1.

    I also think that depending on what the team plans on doing with Watson determines where he starts. If they still plan on using him as a starter, I bet he sees Dayton. If he is going to be a reliever, then Sarasota is where he goes.

    Carlos Fisher will start in Sarasota I bet.

    Those are my thoughts, the rest looks good.

    Someone already posted (maybe Travis Wood's mom) that Tatum was beginning the season in Louisville.

    She said he is playing with them. So was Jay Bruce. I dont think either of them will start there though.

    Playing with a certain team in spring training (especially at beginning) doesn't mean much. Tatum will probably be at Sarasota. And Dickerson has already been optioned to AA (which us where I assumed he'd be)
    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.

    On the Dickerson front, while he was optioned to AA, he played with Louisville in their spring opener and hit a HR and scored twice according to the Bats official website. Probably just playing filler until cuts trickle down, but its nice that he is hitting still. I am really hoping he can build on his second half of last year.

    Hasn't Eddy Valdez been signed by the Nationals?

    He may have though I was unaware of it.

    Dayton should be fun to watch this year.

    Valdez is currently listed as a non-roster invitee with the Nats.

    What became of Brock Till? He was a pitcher with the Lookouts last year. I don't know much about him other than he was born in my town and grew up not far from here (Macomb, IL). His numbers weren't bad 6 and 1 with a 2.17 era.

    OMB, I think I read in one of our transactions that we release Yoni Lasso. (if i'm remembering right).
    And Valiquette hasn't reported to Spring Training.

    Thanks. I didn't think Valiquette had reported yet but I still stuck him because that's most likely where he'll start if/when he returns.

    Hope Valiquette changes his mind. That will be a decision he regrets the rest of his life. I think about the kids undergoing multiple surgeries, and month after month of rehab who HAVE to call it quits. It bothers me to see a kid quit just because he's homesick and/or the road got a little rough.

    I hope the Reds retain his rights for a while.
