Vote for the player who you think is the Reds #4 prospect. We will go with this as far as you guys want to take it.

I will post a new list every 2 days with 10-15 options to vote on.

If you feel like making an argument on why a guy should be voted here, feel free to vote and state why you voted for that player.

If there is someone that is not currently listed as an option to vote on, vote for 'other' then just state who you want to vote for in the thread.

If there is anyone you would like to see as an option on the next poll, just say so and if they garner enough support, they will be placed on the next poll. Guys with the lowest amount of votes will usually be removed for the next few guys who were talked about in the previous thread.


Prospect 1 - Jay Bruce
Prospect 2 - Homer Bailey
Prospect 3 - Johnny Cueto

Maybe you could clear up some confusion by rewording this. Maybe something like, "Of the players not already elected in the previous threads, please vote for the player who you consider to be the Reds' top prospect."

Easiest vote of them all. The other 3 of the top 4 off the board now, number 4 seems obvious. After this it gets tougher. Please add the most underappreciated prospect in the system Adam Rosales to the list.

I agree, add Rosales for the next poll.

Am I allowed to electioneer for Todd Frazier as prospect 5 on this thread? Or do I have to wait for another thread to point out that he is a blue chip righty hitting prospect who hit the cover off the ball at two levels in his few months of pro ball, hitting for both power and average?

In any event, I view Votto and Frazier as similar (Votto, lefty, Todd, right), but Votto is more advanced so gets 4; then Frazier 5.

Yeah, it gets tough from here. Stubbs, Frazier, Lotzkar, Mesoraco, and Maloney are next for me, but I'm not sure about the order.

With lists like these, while you might not think someone is the #4 prospect, you are supposed to vote who the best guy left. Obviously if someone had Joey Votto as their #1 prospect they would have to think he is the best prospect left and therefore should vote for him here.

Adam Rosales is a quality player. He plays whereever he is needed and enjoys every minute of it. This season he has been at shortstop, 1st base and 3rd base as well as in the out field.Would love to see more of him.

I find it hilarious that the #4 prospect was easier to choose than the #1 prospect.

Fess up. Who voted for 'other'?

Whoever did this - which prospect do you think is better than Votto?

It's a public poll. You can see the culprit.

This might be the most obvious one yet. Votto could have gone 1-4, really.

Sorry, I put Frazier. I didn't see Votto's name on it.

I think it makes perfect sense. Everyone feels there are 4 very good prospects. If 3 are already voted on, then process of elimination leaves you with only 1 guy to vote for. Bruce, Homer, and Cueto are out, so if you have a top 4 of JB, JC, HB, and JV, then Votto is the only one you can vote for.

I know you know the system, but it is clear others do not.

It's just odd that people had more confidence in Joey Votto being the Reds' fourth-best prospect than they did in BA's Minor League Player of the year being the Reds' best prospect. It says great things about the top-end talent in the Reds organization.
