I’m not sure how I missed it — perhaps it got lost in the glee over my alma mater actually winning a few football games lately — but our buddy Doug over at Redsminorleagues.com has been counting down his list of the Top 40 Prospects in the Reds system. As always, Doug has given a lot of thought to these rankings, and despite a few disagreements, Doug’s work is excellent.

Here are 1-10, 11-20, 21-30, and 31-40. Great stuff.

Go over there to read them all, but I will reveal the top 3: Yonder Alonso, Neftali Soto, and Drew Stubbs. (And there is at least one player who didn’t make the list that I had hoped to see there; I’ll let you guess who).
