A look back at Brewer prospects - 2004 and 2005



Had a Amazon gift card from Christmas to use and picked up a couple of older John Sickels prospect books.  Thought it was interesting to see how the current Brewer team looked when they were in the minors.

Also worth noting is Jeremey Reed shows up as the #10 hitting prospect in 2004.
