    Baseball America's Top 100 list - 3 Reds

    Can't believe we have been slacking so much today. This is usually one of the biggest days of the year when it comes to prospects.

    http://www.baseballamerica.com/today...2/2612998.html

    16 Devin Mesoraco c, Reds Age: 23. ETA: 2012.
    The Punxsutawney, Pa., native expects to deliver at least six more years of slugging in Cincinnati.

    48 Billy Hamilton ss, Reds Age: 21. ETA: 2014.
    Posted the first 100-steal year in the minors in a decade; can he continue to do it at higher levels?

    75 Zack Cozart ss, Reds Age: 26. ETA: 2012.
    Big league ready for most of the last two years; just needs to stay healthy.

    Alonso (33) and Grandal (53) also made the list.

    There were also a bunch of Reds questions answered in the chat, which can be found here: http://www.baseballamerica.com/today...2/2613016.html

    What is the deal with Reds fans on the chat? Amazing how many questions about the Reds!

    Will a 260/310/400 season really win ROY this season?

    Or does Jim Callis believe Cozart could provide more help than we here on Redszone?

    At shortstop, that could win the award. Though I think Callis expects more from Cozart than that. I wouldn't be surprised if he went .280/.335/.450, though .270/.325/.425 seems more likely.

    If he goes 280/335/450, he'd be a 3.5+ win improvement over last season. (Assuming health and 155 games played and similar defense.)

    Cozart would be a good pick to win RoY, too bad some dude from Punxsutawney is going to win it this year

    I haven't been paying close attention, but is ZC healthy now after the surgery?

    Small observation, but it's interesting given Buckley's focus on up-the-middle players that the three Reds (and 4 out of 5 if you include the Latos guys) on the list are up-the-middle players, especially C and SS- probably the two most difficult positions to find top prospects in the game.

    2 of the 7 SS on the list and 2 (counting Grandal) of the 7 C are Reds. That's pretty impressive!

    Now let's get a big bopper and a top-flight arm to add to the list!
    Go BLUE!!!
