    Good to see Barrero mentioned highly. Interesting that Lodolo's mentioned before Greene. (That makes sense when you compare their dominance of the league-- Lodolo utterly destroyed opponents.) Three in the top five is pretty solid.

    Given that AA traditionally is the level where prospects establish themselves as truly legit, three in the top 5 is spectacular.

    I do wonder the last time (if any) the Reds had three prospects in their AA Division.

    I'm guessing if that means all three will be top 50 prospects.

    2006 had Bailey and Votto, but I think Cueto and Bruce (very briefly) didnít hit AA until 2007, so it mustíve been a LONG time ago
    Go BLUE!!!

    Probably a good idea to proceed with caution with Lodolo. He only managed to pitch 50.2 innings this year. He's been dynamite when he has pitched, but he's been treated with kid gloves since entering the organization. Issues with blisters this year before being shut down in late August with shoulder strain. I think he's a big league pitcher, but I also worry there's a serious injury before he establishes himself (which, frankly, is par for the course).

    Barrero won't be because he's passed his rookie service time limits (at least I think he has).

    Agreed, I wouldn’t count on him in Cincinnati quite yet. Hunter Greene, on the other hand, should hopefully be contributing by Memorial Day.

    Barrero should be the Opening Day starting shortstop, barring an atrocious showing in Spring Training.

    I think we all know Kyle Farmer is going to be opening day starting SS

    You know it and I know it, but not all agree. Barrero has not shown to me that he can hit MLB pitching. Hope he will.

    I was saying that not supporting it.

    Farm Dawg needs to be a utility player.

    I concur that Bell will start Farmer at SS if allowed. Which begs the question if Barrero becomes tradebait this winter. Torres and McLain should move fast and both appear to be capable of sticking at SS.

    That would literally be bird in hand vs. two in the bush.

    The following rant is about the Reds' maddening ability to screw up easy stuff and not about your post:

    The Reds paid good money for Barrero. He has torn up the minors, become a top prospect and gives them a 24-year-old, five-tool SS for next season. This should be the easiest decision in history to make. Just play him at SS. Don't delay him because you've got a quasi-functional journeyman currently at the position, don't convert him to another position when he's a natural SS, and under no circumstances trade him. Potential star player. Premium position. Gaaah.
    Now begins the winter of our discombobulation.

    Totally agree, M2! I just have little confidence in the Reds to reach that conclusion.
