    Not to mention that there's a good chance he never makes it out of the 'pen. The Reds could erase all the things they have done right in the last few years if they don't at least give Chapman a chance to start again. Bill Bavasi made somecomments that have me worried about the future of Chapman. I can accept him failing as a starter, but I can't accept the Reds not giving him a decent chance at starting. Either way, I'm surprised he's so high with his control and possible mechanics issues.

    While I'm blathering on about the Reds, I want to mention that Billy Hamilton (#51) is supposed to be a speed demon and baserunning machine. If these skills come to fruition in the majors, baseball fans need to call him Sliding Billy in homage to the original Sliding Billy Hamilton.

Tools are great, don't get me wrong, but I prefer actual results before I make a judgment about a player. Give him a season against AAA/MLB pitching and then we can talk about him.
    Other than great tools Harper has age on his side. He's always dominated even against older competiton. In 2010 he played juco ball in a wood bat only league in Las Vegas. He was 17 years old. He obviously played in this wood bat league to give scouts a more accurate assessment of his baseball skills. And he just obliterated the juco league playing against much oldr players. In 66 games, he hit 31 home runs, 98 RBI, hitting .443/.526/.987. He his short stint in the AFL he dominated again. So at this point Harper has yet to be tested. I suspect he'll start the 2011 season at high-A ball. That will certainly test him.

    I agree with pstein, look at Strasburg for example, he maybe once in a ten year type of player and he has shown his dominant stuff in big league level. However, the injury shut him down from playing the 2011 season. What scares me is that he may end up like Mark Prior...

    Same as Bryce Harper he may have tools but tools and results are different. Furthermore, injury becomes a main flaw where it may destroy Bryce's bright future.

    Mike Trout is going to be one serious player.
    He probably will be. He's a .344 hitter after two years in the minors. However, he hasn't hit for a lot of power, and people tend to love power more than anything. Question for you guys. Who benefits a team more: A player who hits line drives and doesn't strike out a lot or a player who hits home runs, has more RBIs but fewer runs scored and who strikes out 30% of the time?

    Not me. As far as being a prospect (definition: A candidate deemed likely to succeed), he's about as good as it gets. What him being ranked 2nd (both with Law and MLB.com) is that Mike Trout is going to be one serious player.
