There was a tie between Paul Janish and Richie Gardner for the #28 spot. Just vote for the player you think is the better of the two.

Janish plays solid defense and has pretty good plate discipline. If he can slug .400+ in the Major Leagues (and granted, he has a ways to go before he gets there, but it's far from impossible), he'll be a very good, all-around baseball player.

Justin Reed.

He fell a vote short of being eligible for the runoff.

Had I known that would have happened, I would've changed my vote to Justin Reed--I like him more than Janish and Gardner.

Not a big deal. Since his name was left off the ballot he was at a disadvantage, I would have included Reed here.

I'm officially choosing "None of the above" on this one.

Richie Gardner- I have an infatuation with pitching prospects...

How? There is an 'other' option. If people thought Justin Reed was the best guy left, then he was easy to vote for.

Some folks might just read the list and pick the best guy listed. They may not focus on "other" or focus on names left off. No big deal, I just would have included Reed in the run-off. Let's leave it at that.

As between the two, I'll vote for Janish. My guess is he is likely to see major league time. Unfortunately, it's still too early to know what Gardner's future will be post-injury, although all Reds fans wish him well.

Still, an athlete like Reed who did so well in Rookie ball at age 20 would be my selection. Hope he gets the 29 spot.

I think people are over-looking Janish's number one asset. He makes Juan Castro expendable. He gets my vote.

I'd say Reed deserves this spot. He got screwed in the last vote.

Go Janish go!

Don't underestimate his defense. He has MLB-quality glove and arm. I think he may debut this season. That alone merits top 30 status.

Top 30: Sure! He can be #29 after Gardner is named #28! :D

Just want to point out that Janish was sent to the rookie development program this year. Teams send 3 players who are likely to make their debut in the following season. Maloney and Bruce were the other attendees.
