    Reds Prospects on Their list include (No 2007 Draft Picks):

    Top 25

    2. Jay Bruce
    5. Homer Bailey- Even though he's stuggled in his first stint with the big club he's still has the best arm in the minors. That's basically what they said.
    18. Joey Votto

    On The Top 100 List Now If It Ended Today- Johnny Cueto and Chris Valakia

    Surprising Drew Stubbs wasn't mentioned as a dissapointment, kind of like they forgot about him.

    I am going to assume that Justin Upton came in at #1?

    All 2005 draft outfielders in the top 3.

    Cameron Maybin at #3 is an absolute joke. Period.

    Maybe they never had high hopes for him.

    Well, he might be right around #10. BA didnt include Phil Hughes, although he may not be eligible because was was on the roster for so long even though injured.
    My top 10 would probably look like this:
    1. Jay Bruce
    2. Justin Upton

    3. Evan Longoria
    4. Homer Bailey
    5. Clayton Kershaw
    6. Clay Bucholz
    7. Adam Jones
    8. Jacob McGee
    9. Joba Chamberlain
    10. Colby Rasmus

    The next few guys would include Maybin, Davis and Wood. I just cant justify a guy who needs to learn to hit still as the #3 prospect in baseball. His upside is very high, but there comes a point when your upside needs to be closer to being reached and I don't see any improvement in Camerons game from last season to this season.... and thats not good because he was and still is fairly raw.

    Re: BA Midseason Top 100

    No, I think they did because he was in the Top 100 last year. I went back and check the Top 100 from last year and a couple other guys weren't mentioned as well. But I still think it was odd, not to have him on the list of players playing their way out of the Top 100. Maybe he'll be on there again next year.

    Was there an intentional space in between #2 and #3? I can't see there being that big of a drop to Longoria.

    Yes there was an intentional space becuase I think those two guys are on a completely different level than everyone else in terms of being prospects. Longoria is very solid, obviously as I have him as my #3 prospect in baseball. I just think that much more highly of Upton and Bruce.

    I would love to see the rest of their list, but I will have to check out the paper next time I go to the mall for the list, as all I have seen is the top 25. That said, maybe I just have higher expectations for what I consider a top 10 prospect but a lot of guys I just can't justify in my head as being top 10 prospects regardless of whether I think they are better than anyone else outside the top 6 or 7....
