    Ryan LaMarre. Outstanding defender in center field. Outstanding base runner. If his bat is even "meh" at the big league level, he has a chance to be a starter somewhere.

    It will be interesting to see what the Reds do with him this year. Do they send him to Pensacola to play CF or do they send him to Louisville to play a corner next to Hamilton? To be honest, it wouldn't surprise me to see him in Cincinnati as a defensive replacement / pinch runner if Choo/Bruce struggle in CF.

    Going again with the pitching equivalent of Yorman.

    I too am interested to see where he goes to start the year. Hamilton, Phipps and Perez are going to be in Louisville. Then you have Fellhauer, who did everything he could in AA last year and then LaMarre who, while having an injury, didn't do much at the plate. Personally, I would cut bait with Phipps and bring both LaMarre and Fellhauer up, but I know the Reds aren't going to do that. I think it would send a poor message if LaMarre went to AAA and Fellhauer went back to Pensacola, but I think it is clear that the Reds are higher on LaMarre (as are most people) and that he could get the nod instead.

    I keep hearing about how he struggled at the plate, but IMO he didn't do all that bad. He's never going to be a slugger, but he showed a very good understanding of how to get on base even when he is struggling. His OBP was nearly 100 points higher than his batting average and has been in the 350 range at almost every stop he has made in the minors. Sure, it would be nice if he could slug 400-425 but even if he doesn't, his mix of up-the-middle defense, baserunning, and OBP make him a very useful player.

    Sure. As I said, I voted for him because with everything else he brings to the table, his bat only needs to be "meh" for him to be of value, maybe even as a starter somewhere. But I am not sure his bat exactly earned him a promotion to AAA either. Especially at the expense of a guy like Fellhauer, who while not the defender that LaMarre is, is still a good defender and his bat absolutely earned a promotion. It will be interesting to see how the rosters shake out.

    It's not often, but every once in a while, dougdirt sways my vote. This is one of those times. I really like his athleticism and patience at the plate. I also expect a spike in power this year.

    I feel like Lamarre has enough developed tools to be a big league contributor in the near future. If he can manage to keep improving his hitting, his ceiling could be as a solid starter for many years for somebody--maybe the Reds after Ludwick is gone. Either way I see him as a big league contributor soon, speed and defense will likely earn him that.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    Lamarre for the umpteenth time.

    That is never a good idea.

    Going with Reynoso purely on the strength of the national love he's getting.

    Not seeing it with Lamarre. If he was a lefty hitter, he might be able to carve out an Endy Chavez/Tony Gwynn Jr. career, but teams usually go for lefty hitters in those speedy, defensive 5th Of types, so Lamarre may actually be a cut below those guys.

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

    I don't think I have ever voted for the same guy in so many consecutive polls as I have with Reynoso this year. I want upside in this prospect range, and his upside is lightyears ahead of Ryan Lamarre. Reynoso has a lot of tools, including a great hit tool, while Lamarre looks like a career bench player with that bat.

    Lots of value in Waldrop right now. I'm going with him. Good frame, solid numbers in Dayton, still young, heading to California.
