    Doesn't David Espinosa still play in Detroit's system somewhere?
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Shows a lot of guys vote from their hearts, or stat sheets. I'd love to hear more input from people in Billings, Sarasota, Chattanooga, who have the opportunity to watch these guys in action a lot. Notice I left out Dayton and Louisville, as there are a number of them on this web-site. Although I do really appreciate their input and observations.

    I stand corrected - he was with the Mud Hens last year and is now a minor league free agent. With his robust .204 BA last year, he is sure to be a hot commodity.

    This discussion makes me think of the first round bust and ex-Red, Cecil Espy. Isn't he also an ex-Tiger?

    3B Edwin Encarnacion (Reds - Majors - Starter)
    LF Austin Kearns (Nationals - Majors - Starter?)
    CF Wily Mo Pena (Nationals - Majors - Starter?)
    RF David Espinosa (Out of Baseball)
    UT Brandon Larson (Nationals - AA)

    Wow, that's 6 out of baseball; 3 in AAA; 1 in AA; 5 in the majors with only 2 or 3 of them starting. And only one with the Reds.

    That's a sad, sad list - let's hope the '07 one looks 15 times better than '02 when '12 rolls around.

    BTW, I was on the Nationals' depth chart on MLB.com and saw that Kearns is listed 2nd to Dukes in RF and Lopez is listed as the backup to Guzman and Belliard at SS and 2B respectively. It's taken them less than a year-and-a-half to play themselves to the bench in Washington of all places. Oh, and Wily Mo is listed as the starter in LF. Go figure.

    Funny stuff.

    I wonder where the 2007 Reds prospects will be in 5 years?
    Who's on first?
