Selsky had a very good year. He's a low draft choice, something like 33rd round, and I'm voting for guys like Fellhauer, Lohman, Greene, who are more highly touted prospects. Lohman was a third rounder, Greene a fourth, Fellhauer a seventh.
At this point I'm not sure the Reds see Selsky as a serious contender for the big leagues, but obviously that can change over time. He was Reds minor league player of the month in August, a real feather in his cap, I understand the votes he is getting here.
Yes, I know draft position doesn't mean everything. At this stage, I tend to stick with the more highly touted guys.
