ESTShareTweetShareShare2019 Red Reporter Community Prospect Rankings: Lyon Richardson Is #20!The 2019 Red Reporter Community Prospect Rankings has mercilessly come to a close.2018 2nd round pick, Lyon Richardson, closes out the list.Richardson has a bumpy start to his professional career but there is a lot of promise in that young arm.Like many high school draftees, Richardson does have some control problems that he will have to reign in.But, there’s plenty to like about the talent he shows.To finish up this year’s festivities I will be posting this year’s list and last year’s list for you to gawk at.You’ll notice we only went to 20 prospects this year because we felt like it.You actually didn’t do too bad in your selections.Feel good about that.2019 ListNick Senzel, 3B/2B/SS/OF: SameTaylor Trammell, OF: +1Hunter Greene, RHP: -1Tony Santillan, RHP: +4Jonathan India, 3B/2B: Drafted in 2018Tyler Stephenson, C: +5Jose Siri, OF: -1Shed Long, 2B Reiver Sanmartin, LHP: HaVladimir Gutierrez, RHP: SameTJ Friedl, OF: +7Scott Moss, LHP: +7Mike Siani, OF: Drafted in 2018Jimmy Herget, RHP: +3Stuart Fairchild Willie Stargell Jersey , OF: SameMariel Bautista, OF: Not on 2018 list.Keury Mella, RHP: +6Hendrik Clementina, C: Not on 2018 list.James Marinan, RHP: Not on 2018 list.

For three days, we condense the entire offseason into one big email chain of transactions, from non-tenders to trades to massive free agent spending.Honestly, it’s become one of my favorite offseason endeavors. Given an estimated budget, we get to not only try to make the moves we think would best suit the real Reds, we also get to find out just how difficult it is to actually, y’know, make those moves happen. You can want Christian Yelich or Chris Sale all you want, but if the other team’s GM simply doesn’t like your offers - or Roberto Clemente Jersey , in most cases, likes other offers more - the deals just don’t come to fruition. It’s frustrating, but it’s a pretty decent lesson in how value is placed on some of the more prized assets in the game.We have fun with it, and sometimes even come out looking damn rosy. Last year, for instance, we managed to fleece the Colorado Rockies for Kyle Freeland and Harrison Musgrave in a deal that sent Adam Duvall to the NL West. The year before that, we hornswoggled the Milwaukee Brewers for Jimmy Nelson, Corey Knebel, and Phil Bickford in exchange for Duvall. Frankly, we’re not exactly sure what we’re going to do this year with no Adam Duvall to trade, but rest assured we’ll be doing our best to put the rebuild behind us and to ‘get some pitching.’With that in mind, we’d love to hear your thoughts on our direction. Should we trade Nick Senzel for Noah Syndergaard? Should we sign Yasmani Grandal to play SS? For how many former Reds out there do you want us to #BringHimBack? The wheeling and dealing technically begins on Sunday and will run through Tuesday evening, at which point we’ll have a recap of what did, did not, should have, and shouldn’t have happened, detailing our plan for how the 2019 Cincinnati Reds can win the World Series.
