Doug has finished his countdown of the Top Forty prospects in the Reds season; here are the top ten. I doubt anyone would argue with the names in Doug’s top four, or the order in which he has placed them.

I do have a fairly big disagreement with his #5 selection; I doubt Drew Stubbs would make my top ten at this point, despite a couple of strong months at the end of this season (though he’d probably be in my top fifteen). I can’t really quibble with the rest of his selections, though I’d probably move Juan Francisco up a few spots, and maybe Matt Maloney, too.

Overall, however, very good work by Doug.
