John Sickels has taken a look back at his pre-season top twenty Reds prospects, and how each has developed midway through the season. Interesting stuff for you DOTF types.
A couple of thoughts:
–I hope the Reds have a backup plan for next year’s center field (after Shin-Soo Choo vacates the position), because it’s looking increasingly likely that Billy Hamilton is going to need another year at AAA.
–Robert Stephenson is looking like a great draft pick. Kid is a stud.
