Found January 29, 2012 on Redlegs Review:
Okay, I'll admit it. I'm not a huge fantasy baseball guy. I'd much rather root for my team over constantly stressing over rotisserie points, but I can see the allure of it.

Fortunately, I was one of them and updated my list, while Baseball America went to 30 players so I was able to just move the players...

Brodie Greene entered 2011 coming off of a 2010 season where he struggled after an aggressive placement in High-A right after being drafted. His average and plate discipline were solid, but his power was didn’t show up in his initial minor league exposure.

Reds Caravan 2012 – West Leg Pix
