    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Strahan is interesting because he could be above average out of the pen, but still has a chance to be a starter. He looked good after TJ last year and could really jump in these rankings next year, especially if he continues his success in the rotation.

    Re: Reds 2017/2018 Prospect Poll - Prospect #38

    At this point, I'm just voting on guys based on their age relative to their level in the minors. Tromp making it to AA as a 22 year old says something about how the organization views him, particularly since catchers tend to move slowly through the system. I also considered Romero and Ventura here since teenagers in low-A ball are pretty rare, but in the end went with the more advanced prospect.

    I liked Strahan a couple of years ago when he was a workhorse in Dayton, but it's hard to work up much enthusiasm for a 25 year old who has never pitched above single-A. Maybe he could have a Kevin Shackelford type of career and make it into the majors in his late 20s, but the odds aren't in his favor.

    Catchers and Backup Middle Infielders tend to get moved around a lot in the minors because it's tough to fill-in. Alberti Chavez filling in at AA last year as a 21 year old doesn't speak to the organization thinking he could handle it, for example.

    Tromp was only at AA last year because Rob Brantly opted out of his AAA contract forcing them to move Nieto up to AAA and Tromp to AA.

    Ventura, Strahan, and Mondile are my picks for the final three slots. But honestly, anyone on that list can be selected and I'd be fine with it.

    Don't know anything about that Carlos Reina, though.

    I think there's numerous reasons Tromp got called up, not the least of which is he was playing circles around Okey and that was getting awkward. He was the best catcher they had in Daytona at that moment. I get skepticism on Tromp. I think he might have figured something out with the bat, making him ready to progress at point where others stall out.
    Wait until the year after next year.

    The Reds signed Reina out of Venezuela in the first week of international signings of 2015 for one of the 100 largest contracts handed out that year - 250,000$ - equivalent to 6th round draft money. Only Cristian Olivo and Miguel Hernandez got more from the Reds that year.

    I'm surprised Naughton is still on the board.

    He had like a dozen starts in A+ and was called up to fill-in. I hope you are right but I don't see it and think he's likely slated to be a backup again this year and an injury promotion fill-in.

    Worrying about the number 38th prospect is a sure sign that opening day can't come soon enough!

    What exactly is the case for Tromp over Ventura?
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Bench OF profile vs. Bench C? It's a toss-up, I'll take the C with a hope that his offensive profile develops late in his prospect life.
