    Prospect Poll #10

    OK, a lot of changes this time. We had a runoff to determine #7, and the 3 guys were so close I made them 7,8, and 9. In the meantime, Reds swap Downs and Gray to Dodgers. Two guys who were in line for slots very soon.

    Mariel Bautista (21) - CF from Dominican Republic. Signed as Intl Free Agent in 2014. Hit .330 with .917 OPS in Billings.
    Hendrick Clementina (21) C from Curacao. After huge start, settled in with .268 avg and .824 OPS in Dayton.
    Jose Garcia (20) - SS from Cuba. After bad start hit .277 in 2nd half for Dayton.
    Jimmy Herget (25) - RHP from Tampa, FL. Drafted in 6th round of 2015 draft. 3.47 ERA in AAA. Added to 40 man roster.
    Miguel Hernandez (19) - SS from Venezuela. Hit .310 with .338 OBP in Greeneville
    Shed Long (23) - 2b from Jacksonville (AL.) HS. Drafted 12th round of 2013 draft. .765 OPS in AA with 19 steals.
    Kuery Mella (25) RHP RHP from Dominican Republic. Acquired from Giants in 2015 Mike Leake deal. 3.00 ERA in minors, 8.68 in 13 innings in Majors.
    Mike Siani (19) - CF from William Penn HS, Pennsylvania. Drafted 4th round of 2018 draft for $2 Million bonus. Hit .281 with .351 OBP in Greeneville.

    As always, if someone you want to vote for is not there.... vote other and I'll add to poll. I'm open for suggestions on guys I need to consider adding.

    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.

    Time to rally the troops around Shed.

    I think the 3-way tie hurt him as I wouldn't be surprised if he was the 2nd choice of many voters. But alas, let's at least get him in the Top 10.

    I'm a Shed skeptic, but with Vlad, Siri and Friedl off the board and Downs gone, he seems the clear choice here.

    Shed seems reasonable here.

    Scott Moss and Packy Naughton might be good adds for polls in the near future.

    Went with Long, but wouldn't be surprised if Siani turns out better.

    Yeah I think Siani is my guy at #11.

    Long has some prospect fatigue here.

    He's underrated, at 10.

    I don't know about prospect fatigue; I think there's some concern about his transition to AA.

    Meh.

    120 wRC+ is plenty decent for a 2B.

    The league itself sucks offense.
