Lamarre -- his athleticism is underappreciated here.

A fairly high ceiling is still there. We'll learn more in 2013.
If Lotzkar is healthy, I think the move to the bullpen could give his career enough of a shot in the arm that he could contribute to the big league club in late 2013 or 2014.
I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.
I know the ship has sailed and this isn't even the right thread, but Neftali Soto is too high on that list IMO.
Why do I still have to vote for Reynoso?
2010 Mock Draft Selections (picking for Rays)
Tell you what, this is an interesting poll. The principals are so diverse. Gelalich is the pedigree draft pick who hasn't yet done anything. Reynoso is the toolsy project. Lotzkar is the guy everybody would love if only he could stay healthy (and last I read, he was uncertain whether he'd be ready to go in spring training). Wright is the plug-away ballplayer. Waldrop is under the radar. LaMarre just keeps edging along. Although they haven't yet made an impact in the voting, guys like Cisco, Garrett and Constante have their own prospect niches. Same with Romano and Perez. I think Smith and Selsky should be receiving more notice than they have. Quite a buffet.
Gelalich seems like LaMarre 2.0. Interesting that they're going head to head here.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
This is one of the reasons this system is so much fun to follow.
There are literally 20 players that could blossom into B+/B prospects by this time next season and/or prove themselves as solid major leaguers.
Because there are a ton of guys that could do well, chances are that many of them will do well.
