It is my favorite time of the year (prospect wise). It is time for the 2013 Prospect List. This week I will post 5 prospects per day and on Friday along with the Top 5 guys, I will also have a discussion/chat (if possible to find free chat software). 25. Gabriel Rosa – 3B – 18 Years Old – RK+ Acquired: 2nd round, 2011 Draft The Good: Rosa is an athletic 6′ 4″ kid who has some speed and plenty of power potential. Needs to work on: Just about everything. He played through an injury in 2012 before shutting it down. He is still very raw both at the plate and in the field. 2012 Stats Tm PA 2B 3B HR RBI SB CS BB SO BA OBP SLG Billings 80 6 0 0 5 2 0 1 25 .179 .188 .256 Video – Unavailable 24. Bryson Smith – OF – 23 Years Old – AA Acquired: 34th Round, 2011 Draft The Good: Smith can play all outfield positions and has very high contact rates, leading to a good ability to hit for average.

Dusty Baker as a box of toothpicks?

Have you ever wondered how awesome it would be if we could see some of the Reds dress up in Halloween costumes? I have. And as much as I (and others) would love to feast my eyes on such a spectacle, it isn't likely that we will get the chance to. However, thanks to modern day technology and a little imagination, I have created the following post which features costume recommendations...

Billy Hamilton homers, but Javelinas lose twice over weekend

Hamilton hit his first homer of the 2012 AFL. On Friday, Peoria lost 8-7 to Salt River. It was about as even as an affair as you can get with both the Javelinas and Rafters banging out 12 hits on the afternoon. -CF Billy Hamilton went 1-4, with a home run (1) and a walk. He was picked off at first after the walk. -SS Didi Gregorius notched a hit in four at-bats. -RHP...

Johnny Cueto in a tornado costume?

Have you ever wondered how awesome it would be if we could see some of the Reds dress up in Halloween costumes?

Recapping the season of Mat Latos

Expectations were sky high entering the 2012 season for Mat Latos. The Reds dealt a king's ransom during the offseason to acquire the right-hander's services from San Diego, and all in hopes that he could be the No. 2 starter the team so desperately needed. After watching how is individual campaign unfolded, I would venture to say that his first season in Cincinnati can...
