    As far as infield prospects go, I might be more excited about Brent Peterson than Zach Vincej. Vincej is certainly more polished right now though.

    Yes, maybe. I look at it differently from you though as I am as much of a Dayton fan as I am a Reds fan.

    I expect to see the best Dragons squad in years. There might be a couple questions about the bullpen, but the rotation and everyday lineup should be something to get excited about. Speaking of infield prospects, Ty Washington has some flair and should become a fun player to watch. Being a short guy, he's ceiling's somewhat limited, but with a lot of good fortune, he could become the next Eric Young.

    Re: Projecting 2013 Minor League Lineups

    For anyone who has not seen a low-minors baseball game...when I talk about defensive shortcomings, there are two different categories. You have Ryan Wright, who you could watch play 100 games at second base and say he is fine there. And he is fine for A-ball. But scouts look at the lack of range and say that would not cut it as a big leaguer, so they look at another position for him. It is not so much a weakness but a projected weakness.

    On the other hand, there are players in A-ball who have been drafted based on their bat but who have defensive skills that are so poor that you can't believe it. If Juan Duran were on a college team, he would never play a single inning of defense because the coach just could not live with that kind of a liability. There are a few players like that in every organization. You look at these guys and you wonder how on earth they could ever improve enough to be a major leaguer when they can't make plays that the kid on the local high school team would make. But this same player might hit a ball over the scoreboard, that's why he was signed.

    So you hear people talk about someone like a Henry Rodriguez or Ryan Wright being short defensively and they are saying something completely different from what they are talking about with a Duran. In one case, they are comparing the player to what you expect from a big leaguer and in the other case, they are saying the guy is a bad defensive player.

    I am a Ty Washington fan after seeing some video of him.

    One person I spoke with really likes Peterson and thinks he could get in the mix at 2B in Dayton. Runs well and plays good defense. Might struggle against off-speed stuff at this point. Reynoso is said to be very good prospect who could probably handle himself in Dayton but will have to wait his turn.

    So, going off the original post by Benihana, it's been said that Lotzkar is not looking to start. Does that put him in the AAA bullpen?

    Re: Projecting 2013 Minor League Lineups

    For me, this list is scary. Check Gregorious off the list. Now go down and look at our SS depth chart.

    Negron / Gilmartin / Perez / Vincej

    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.
    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

    Agreed. Would love to draft and/or sign some premium SS prospects.

    If Cozart falters for whatever reason, at least we have the pitching prospects to trade for another SS.
    Go BLUE!!!

    I would expect Beau Mills to be in either the Louisville or Pensacola lineups. Dennick will either be a Red or offered back

    What will Louisville's starting rotation be?

    Cingrani, Corcino, Villareal, Redmond, Rogers?

    I doubt they promote Rogers that quickly, even with a good August in AA.

    Dennick was taken in the minor league phase of the rule five draft and therefore doesn't need to be offered back.
