Fangraphs prospect expert Bryan Smith held a prospect chat on Tuesday and here is another Q & A from the chat:
[Comment From Sandy Kazmir]Who would you rather have next season Yonder Alonzo or Gaby Sanchez?
Bryan Smith:For 2011, I'll take Sanchez. For everything after, give me Alonso.
Interesting. I am curious where Alonso plays in 2011-as in what position and for what team, especially after the Reds picked up Jonny Gomes option yesterday. Maybe a platoon in LF in Cincy? Or he gets traded for a SS?
