    Personally I think the Reds have solid depth.

    I agree there's more depth than we're given credit for. Case in point: Adam Rosales, two more doubles tonight, 50% of his hits for extra bases, now over .900 OPS at Chattanooga. He doesn't even make most posters top 15 or 20, though he'd certainly make mine.

    Jim Callis sure does change his mind quick, on his chat today he says that Stubbs will be ahead of Francisco on the Reds Top 10 List. It sure seems like he really didn't research the question from last week.

    Was it Callis that said that last week though? I read that it was said by BA, but I didn't see which writer actually said it.

    Gotcha. Maybe he was basing his stuff off of older scouting reports and some guys came in with newer reports saying 'Stubbs adjusted this and now he is doing this, that and the other' and it looks a lot better now.

    Things like that will happen. With that said though, I ranked Stubbs off the top of my head the other day in the 'My Top 20 Prospects' thread at #12. After going through and giving all a nice look Stubbs is actually my #6 prospect behind Bruce, Bailey, Cueto, Votto and Wood.

    Re: My Top 20 Prospects

    I agree Stubbs has definitely shot up the prospect list with his recent surge. My new list as of August 23 would look like something like this:

    GRADE A
    1. Bruce OF AAA
    2. Bailey RHP AAA
    3. Cueto RHP AA
    4. Votto 1B/OF AAA

    GRADE B
    5. Wood LHP A+
    6. Maloney LHP AAA
    7. Stubbs CF A
    8. Francisco 3B/OF A
    9. Watson RHP A+
    10. Frazier 3B R

    GRADE C
    11. LeCure RHP AA
    12. Roenicke RHP AA
    13. Dorn OF AA
    14. Valaika 2B/3B A+
    15. Thompson RHP A+
    16. Rosales INF AA
    17. Jukich LHP A+
    18. Fisher RHP AA
    19. Turner 2B A
    20. Mesoraco C R

    HON MENTION
    Dickerson CF AAA
    McBeth RHP AAA
    Cozart SS A
    Waring 3B R
    Tatum C AA
    Go BLUE!!!

    Most of us (myself included) have dropped Janish from the lists. His bat has come alive in AAA. Still has aways to go offensively, but last year was part of BA's top ten Reds prospects. Maybe deserves some more positives on the lists.

    I would have included Janish. He's a defensive beast.

    Re: My Top 20 Prospects

    What I think is ironic is I was in barnes and noble earlier this spring was was looking through BA's prospect book. They had all the reds prospects listed and had Josh Hamilton either at #20 or #30 which ever was the last one they listed.

    30th out of 30. For a group that wears the badge of appreciating tools and upside, they kinda flubbed this one.

    Or they kind of had little to go on and didn't expect him to stay clean?

    6 GS

    39 H
    12 BB
    2.83 WHIP
    15.00 ERA


    Phil Dumatrait. Quite possibly the worst pitcher ever to make at least 6 starts for the Reds.

    Is it sad that I almost thought that WHIP was someone's ERA before I read on.
