BP posts Top 10 Astros prospects

Baseball Prospectus posted their Top 10 Astros Prospects after I posted the Hot Lynx. It is NSFW because of Prospect Porn. The article is free to read, so you can read the write-ups, but here is the list of their Top 10.

1) Alex Bregman
2) A.J. Reed
3) Francis Martes
4) Daz Cameron
5) Kyle Tucker
6) Derek Fisher
7) Colin Moran
8) Michael Feliz
9) David Paulino
10) Miguel Angel Sierra

But one quote, on A.J. Reed:
This is not a drill. Slowly reach for the oxygen mask, and place yours around your head before helping anyone else. Take deep breaths. Have a sip of water. Now that you're calm, imagine standing in the middle of a field, imagine being tackled by Brian Cox. Or cross-checked by Chris Chelios. This is what it's like to be a baseball being thrown to Reed. The potential is there for a 30-plus home run hitter with a .270-.280 average and even better on-base skills. Invest.

I saw Colin Moran play a few times last season.

I don't understand any of the hype here. He doesn't really look like much of a prospect. And remarkably little upside.

I really hope I'm wrong. But I just don't see him belonging on this list.
