    Do you take quality over quantity? Hypothetically speaking which would u rather have the number four or numbers 9,13 and 18? Something along those lines?

    I take quality. Especially considering this example where Alonso is inside the Top 20 in all of baseball, while those guys are all likely sitting on the outside of the Top 100 (maybe Davis sneaks in).

    Some Reds questions:

    Brad (MO): Could Votto or Alonso handle an outfield corner, or will a trade have to take place for both to play everyday?

    J.J. Cooper: Votto could more than Alonso. Pretty much it's a universal belief that Alonso is a first baseman and a first baseman only. But do you ask the established big leaguer to move to a position he's played very little (even in the minors) to make room for a rookie? That would be a tough task for the Reds management. When Votto came up to the big leagues there were those who thought he'd be a better left fielder than first baseman, so it is possible.



    JAYPERS (not ILL): Why the lack of pitchers in the top 20?

    J.J. Cooper: I touched on this above, but the problem was almost all of the best pitchers in the FSL were promoted out of the league just a start or two before they would have qualified. Zach Stewart and Andrew Cashner would have ranked right behind Drabek on this list and Jay Jackson, Brad Holt, Mauricio Robles and Chris Carpenter would have all made the Top 20 as well. Add those six pitchers to the Top 20 and it would have been a pitcher-heavy list.

    Where to play Alonso makes the pick all the more puzzling, especially when Beckham was available.

    Draft Beckham and Zach Stewart is still in the organization and there is still a little payroll flexibility (with no Rolen) to add a decent FA this offseason.

    They will play Alonso at first base.They didn't draft Beckham because they liked Alonso more.

    Always quality over quantity.

    How about we trade Alonso for Dominic Brown and throw in the chaff to make up the difference between #3 & #4.
