I am now working on the Toronto Blue Jays Top Prospect list for 2014. The next team in the queue is the Cincinnati Reds, to be followed by the Baltimore Orioles, Milwaukee Brewers, Houston Astros, Arizona Diamondbacks, Chicago White Sox, and Miami Marlins.
Use this thread to discuss the Cincinnati Reds farm system. Here are some possible points of discussion:
***Would you have fired Dusty Baker? Was it time to let go or do you think he deserved more chances?
***Assuming that Robert Stephenson begins 2014 in Double-A, how soon do you anticipate him reaching the major leagues? Would you give him at least another year, or would you push him up as soon as he shows signs of being ready?
***Let's say Billy Hamilton gets 600 at-bats. What's his slash line and how many bases does he steal?
***Will the league catch up with Tony Cingrani?
***Am I wrong in thinking that 2013 fourth round pick Ben Lively is going to zip through the minor leagues and exceed expectations?
***As always, feel free to discuss sleepers who interest you. Obviously Ben Lively interests me.
