Vote for the player who you think is the Reds #40 prospect (the best prospect who is not yet on the list). 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
Prospect 4 - Joey Votto
Prospect 5 - Todd Frazier
Prospect 6 - Drew Stubbs
Prospect 7 - Matt Maloney
Prospect 8 - Josh Roenicke
Prospect 9 - Travis Wood
Prospect 10 - Devin Mesoraco
Prospect 11 - Kyle Lotzkar
Prospect 12 - Danny Dorn
Prospect 13 - Sean Watson
Prospect 14 - Carlos Fisher
Prospect 15 - Juan Francisco
Prospect 16 - Neftali Soto
Prospect 17 - Brandon Waring
Prospect 18 - Adam Rosales
Prospect 19 - Tyler Pelland
Prospect 20 - Daryl Thompson
Prospect 21 - Pedro Viola
Prospect 22 - Chris Valaika
Prospect 23 - Sam Lecure
Prospect 24 - Marcus McBeth
Prospect 25 - Justin Turner
Prospect 26 - Chris Dickerson
Prospect 27 - Scott Carroll
Prospect 28 - Richie Gardner
Prospect 29 - Justin Reed
Prospect 30 - Paul Janish
Prospect 31 - Alexander Smit
Prospect 32 - Danny Herrera
Prospect 33 - Zach Cozart
Prospect 34 - Tzu-Kai Chiu
Prospect 35 - Ramon Ramrirez
Prospect 36 - Derrik Lutz
Prospect 37 - Evan Hildenbrandt
Prospect 38 - Josh Ravin
Prospect 39 - Ben Jukich

Just for reference this was last year.

I'd say Soto, Ramirez, and Valaika improved their status the most this year. Besides a few guys who had down years, most of the prospects on the list maintained or improved their standing.

You might say Dickerson made the most improvement. To go from where he was there to where 2008 ended. I still have real doubts that he can maintain his big league performance level. I have more faith in Hanigan. And Hanigan didn't even make that list. Maybe because of age?

I think we had craig tatum at #40 and to be perfectly honest with you I didn't know a thing about Hanigan until this season. Chris Heisey, Sean Henry, and Shaun Cumberland could've been on their as well. Any other omissions? Robert Manuel took a big step as well

It will be interesting to see who comes out of nowhere and does well next season

I remember making a case for Hanigan over Tatum, but age was the main factor in why he was omitted, if I remember correctly.
