Re: Prospect #17 runoff vote
I don't think its so easy. Reds position players most likely to be regulars in the major leagues:
1. Yonder Alonso
2. Neftali Soto
3. Zach Cozart
Cozart may not make it, but he has the ingredients necessary to hold down a regular role for 150 games or so per year. Not sure anyone else except Alonso and Soto can make that claim. For the recod, I left Duran and Yorman out of the equation and I do have Frazier, Stubbs, Dickerson and Dorn all rated more highly than Cozrt, but I can make a better case why none of them will be everyday players in the big leagues than I can with Cozart. I rate them higher because they have much less chance of becoming nothing as well. Beyond Bailey and Lotzkar (and maybe Thompson) there really isn't a pitcher in the organization that projects to have better value than even a mediocre regular.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
