    Reds named 'Organization of the Year' by Baseball America

    I was just reading through my new issue of Baseball America (December 11, 2012), and I see that the Reds have been named the 'Organization of the Year' for 2012 by Baseball America Magazine. I can't find a link yet, and I will post it when I find it.

    The main thrust of the article is how many of their starters the Reds have drafted and developed themselves. A nice read.

    They should be more like the Marlins and Pirates.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I've been waiting for the mainstream baseball media (meaning the outlets that cover the bogs, not BA itself) to acknowledge this. You'd think that when a small/mid market team wins 97 games and goes to the playoffs the "experts" would pick up on it. But there seems to be a blind spot in the media when it comes to seeing what has made the Reds team they are.

    Great FO performance for the past few years. Couldn't be happier.

    The Reds are doing a lot of things right these days. What's really impressive is how quickly the system restocked after the Latos trade. It's been three decades since the Reds could boast a farm system that was this prolific.

    Ironic considering just last winter, before the Latos trade, there was the ongoing joke in various forms of WJ being asleep at the switch, that Dusty is an ignoramous, and hiring Bavasi would be the end of the free world. And that from people who seem like they know what they're talking about Did I leave out the rants about Buckley's drafting weaknesses?

    Dusty IS a bit of an ignoramus.

    Can't wait till they win a playoff series.

    Castellini made all the difference in the world. He cares, he's involved, he's passionate, and he's good at what he does. The losing really did stop.

    Makes me realize how disconnected and removed Lindner was. Nothing against the guy, but the Reds were just a minor bauble in his crown.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I would love to see this Reds team if they were set up to absolutely maximize their potential.

    I do think Castellini is a pretty great owner and a thousand times better than Lindner, obviously. I just want to see the Reds win a WS and I think Dusty is a detriment to that.

    That's good to see. This organization does deserve credit for the team they fielded as almost all of the major parts were either home grown or acquired with home grown talent (like Phillips and Latos)

    That's pretty amazing in this day and age

    Dusty's like a crazy uncle -- you might look at him and wonder what the hell makes him tick or how he's survived this long, but at the end of the day everyone likes having him around and he's still family.
