    hehe..good point…I was referring to the 1 ER, but I suppose you are right.

    My guess is anyone 23 or older at Single A has little or no chance to be a big league star. And would have a small chance of being a decent backup.

    who said anything about the Reds system declining? I said WTF about one player.
    I don’t think you could make a determination about a teams minor system by looking at the ages of ONE team. Are the young guys performing, etc.

    Go find a 24 year old Single A player that has ever turned out to be a regular major leaguer.

    There aren’t that many.
