    I'm still of the opinion that we'll see Leake there for considerable time.
    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

    Me, too.

    Okay. So......

    Leake
    Redmond
    Villareal
    Cingrani (if he isn't the lefty specialist for the Reds)
    Corcino

    That's how I see it.

    That might be better than the Astros, Marlins, Twins and Redsox staff

    Re: Projecting 2013 Minor League Lineups

    The Reds are really building quite a crowd at the upper levels with the minor league free agents they've signed. Consider the pitching situation. Lets start with the Starters

    The Reds will have Cueto, Latos, Bailey, Arroyo and Chapman with Mike Leake involved in the pen or maybe at AAA.

    For AAA we have Chad Reinecke, Armando Galarraga, Mark Redmond, Daniel Corcino, Tony Cingrani, Pedro Villareal, Greg Reynolds, Sean Gilmartin and Maybe Leake.

    At AA Josh Smith, Chad rogers, Daniel Renken, Yohan Pino, Tim Crabbe

    Some of the AAA guys may end up in AA and some will end up in the bullpen, but bullpen spots are scarce as well. In the Majors the Reds have a crowd with Broxton, Marshall, Ondrusek, Arredondo, Simon, Masset and Lecure leaving no room for JJ Hoover who probably starts out in AAA and possibly one of the others will as well if Leake or Chapman starts the season in the pen.

    At AAA Josh Ravin, Nick Christiani, Wilkin de La Rosa, Justin Freeman, Chris Manno, Jose Diaz, Mark Serrano, Drew Hayes, Jeff Stevens, Kevin Whelan and probably Hoover will be competing...

    ...While at AA Curtis Partch, Brian Pearl, Blaine Howell, Carlos Contreras, James Walczak, Kyle Lotzkar, Lee Hyde, and Loek Van Mil will be pushing for time.

    The lower levels have plenty of guys needing innings too and you have to wander what the Reds are going to do with them all. Could be 7 to 10 guys cut loose or dealt off in spring training IMO.

    No, still with the Braves. The Reds' Gilmartin is an infielder struggling to get out single A.

    Yep. See the ranks are thinning already.

    Is there a weaker position in our entire organization? We were banking on Hamilton with Gregorious as a fallback. Now they're both out of that picture.
    I would assume the Reds will draft a couple SSs very high this year...most teams draft a lot of them every year, but the Reds will do it with more urgency.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    Just looking back over this thread, some wondering what Rosa will do with the loaded 3b and OF situation around him...one of these lists that just came out (MLB?) mentioned they might look for Rosa at SS still.

    That doesn't jive with what redsof72 says about his defense at 3b to well though, and if you look back redsof72 was on to Reynoso back in December before the BA list came out.

    Re: Projecting 2013 Minor League Lineups

    Can anyone confirm that the Reds intend to convert Carlos Contreras back into a starter? I thought I overheard this at ST.

    BTW, saw young Soto throw 15 or so pitches off the mound on a minor league field. Consistently high with the fastball. I had no way to determine speed, but I could see good movement. Also, he threw one nice curve with sharp, late break and noticeable speed differential.

    Who is young Soto?

    I may be wrong, but I presumed it was Mario's son. I seem to recall a mention that he had a son coming along as a pitcher. He had Soto on his uni and was #36. He was being watched and coached from behind the backstop by an older Soto, also #36. Seemed to fit.

    FORMER REDS pitching great Mario Soto, now a special assistant to the general manager, has his son, Mario, Jr., 18, in camp with him and he, too, is budding pitcher.
    Soto Jr. is weighing scholarship offers in the Dominican Republic and when asked if he is going to be as good as his father said, “Yes.” Better? “Yes.”Mario Sr. was asked if his son has the same devastating changeup he used to freeze hitters and he said, “He was born with it.”
    From Hal McCoy's blog.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.
