Here is one of my favorite Reds exercises: Rank the Reds top assets in terms of trade value.
Here are the qualifiers:
A player has to be under 30 (no BP, Ludwick, Arroyo or Rolen)
Contract counts (both salary and years under control)
I think this is probably more difficult than I can ever remember it being, mainly because there is SO MUCH TALENT. I'll start with my top 15, more to come later:
8. Mesoraco (he could be lower)
14. Hanigan (he could be higher)
It's absolutely insane to think that a 26 year old SP with a 4.11 ERA and plus stuff is only this organization's FIFTEENTH best asset. Insane. Earlier this decade, someone like that could've topped this list.
