Thank You, Dan O’Brien
Sports Illustrated has ranked the top 10 prospects in baseball in a cute little photo essay. Number 9 is the Reds’ own Homer Bailey; number 1 is the Reds’ Jay Bruce. Dan “Status Quo” O’Brien wasn’t so hot general managing yesterday’s Cincinnati team, but his work with tomorrow’s team is looking pretty good.
The Cardinals are the only other NLC team who have a prospect make an appearance with Colby Rasmus coming in at number 8. The Rays were the other team with two players on the list, and it’s easy to draw comparisons between the two teams. I was surprised to see a Yankee’s representative on the list: I didn’t think the Yankees believed in prospects.
