And at this juncture in the voting he is going against mostly youngsters a good portion of which will never see the show, we just don't know which guys that will be.
Besides if you have a favorite give us a scouting report and maybe you can change some minds. That is part of why we do this because very few of us have legitimate info on any of these guys this far down the list. To me the numbers they put up are mostly meaningless without a scouting report to go with it.
I just think there a bunch of guys left with much higher potentials and better scouting reports left on the board. Lamarre's advantage of production versus the other guys is only in A ball, which is not significant enough to me to offset his scouting report. I think he is a very good prospect and am excited to follow him next year but as deep as the Reds minor leagues are I dont see him for another few picks until he shows that he is better than his scouting reports (which may have been influenced due to his injury in colllege).
