    ........JUST KIDDING ON TORREYES. He isn't in major league camp and I just made those numbers up to freak some people out.

    Maybe we use this thread to follow these players from now through the season.

    Thing is, small sample size in tact, it wouldn't be "that surprising" other than the 26 at bat part. Little dude can flat out hit, it will be interesting how he fairs against upper level competition.

    I'm glad he was traded. His name kinda creeps me out...but so did that song about Bette Davis eyes.

    Tracking what traded prospects did was a lot of fun when this team was a basement dweller. Now it just seems odd.

    I don't see the problem.

    My first thought when I saw the thread was that it was a good idea followed by what took so long.I guess maybe I've become a little out of touch with RZ during the offseason.

    I agree, this is a good idea.

    It will be interesting to follow a good group of young prospects and major leaguers that the Reds traded to to help get guys to win now.I actually think that is something new to this forum.

    Well, I for one will be following Ronald's career very closely. He's been my favorite Reds prospect since the days of Redus. I have the sneaking suspicion that trading Torreyes away is going to haunt us.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    This is going to take awhile. I've forgotten a lot of last names.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I guess there's nothing wrong with tracking those guys. Personally, I'll be tracking the current Reds prospects.

    Someone needs to go back and track stewart and roenike to see how that trade has worked out for the reds. I'm still waiting on Stewart to win those Cy Young Awards.
