    Which Set of Prospects Would You Rather Have?

    Below is a list of the rookies the Reds have gained/lost during Wayne Krivsky's tenure (not including Minor League free agents). Obviously, some of them are no longer rookies, but they were at the times of the transactions. Based on Major League statistics, the Reds, have clearly gotten the better end of Wayne Krivsky's trades (thanks to Brandon Phillips, Bronson Arroyo, etc.). However, what I'm wondering is if the Reds have gotten the better end of the deals on the Minor League side, as well.

    I have to go with the first list. Bray, Burton, Coutlangus, and possibly McBeth will help the bullpen out when they've all matured. I like Livingston in the rotation but chances are he won't be there in the future. Mat Maloney is becoming a pleasant surprise and I'm looking forward to seeing him in the Majors. I liked Lopez I thought he would be a good bench player and then he got hit in the face.

    Off the top of my head, Germano, Harris and Ross would be the only 3 I somewhat miss.

    Keppinger = Harris, so we're fine there.

    Ross > Hopper, so that one doesn't work for us.

    Germano > Livingston (only guy I saw that is in a similar P role), so we lost that one as well.

    Based on this quick math/logic, we possibly came out ahead based on the collective sum of Bray, Burton, Coutlangus and McBeth > Germano, Ross and Harris.

    I'd take Bray or Burton over having every player on the other list.

    It's not even close.
