    Baseball America Best Tools Issue

    This was actually on Fayblog: http://cincinnati.com/blogs/reds/ I don't have access to that issue.

    International League: Aroldis Chapman, best fastball and best breaking ball; Chris Valaika, best defensive second baseman; Wladimir Balentien, best outfield arm.

    Southern League: Kris Negron, best defensive shortstop.

    Midwest League: Mariekson Gregorius, best infield arm.

    Chris Valaika, best defensive second baseman
    I think Billy Hamilton may have something to say about that. From what I've seen, his athletic ability/range is well above anything that Valaika has.

    Hopefully once he gets to the IL he'll be the best as well.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
