i imagine most people have taken note of the fact that jeremy reed, our second round pick from last season, is currently tearing up the carolina league hitting .340. however, i for one had failed to realize that he is also 21 of 24 in stolen base attempts after just 47 games and that he has walked 34 times for a .452 obp. incredible.

Dont you know, there are scripted plans to let all good prospects rot in the minors, except Willie Harris?

College player with some speed, but not a blazer. He has good instinct on the basepaths that allows him to have a good stolen base percentage, but I don't know if his speed and those instinct will completely translate to the major league level. His patience at the plate does not come as a surprise, as that was one of his strong points in college.

I was really questioning that pick last year, but he has impressed so far (I thought he would have been there for their next pick, but they might not have been willing to take that gamble, and he was an easy sign).

He should be promoted ASAP (Ruddy Yan too)

I heard someone mention this guys name before. Man, so we do have a Legitimate CF prospect.
