    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.

    Now we're getting to real darts at a dartboard territory.

    I'll go with Ibandel, although I'm at least half convinced that he'll flame out in Chattanooga (almost said Pensacola) this year. If he doesn't though, it means we're probably underrating him.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    I'm still going with Jose Lopez. 3 straight years of at least 140 innings. 3:1 K/BB ratio. He's turning 26 so it's his make or break year. He's in that Stephens, Herget group.

    I think next year we'll be somewhat surprised when SanMartin cracks the top 10.

    I mean I won't be, but the rest of you will.

    I'm requesting Fidel Castro be added to the next poll. El Presidente raked at two levels last year.

    Surprised we haven't had a Debby Santana request. I'm not necessarily making one. Just surprised.

    I voted for Clementina with the mindset that at least there's a chaaance he can catch, where as Isabel is limited to 1B. But after looking at the full season numbers, they aren't nearly as impressive as his memorable first couple months. He struck out a fair amount and has average patience. At least Isabel's plus plus power plays at 1B.

    I also could be swayed who to vote for next. These are the lottery tickets...

    Hold the phone. Are we totally forgetting Aquino?

    Or has he been written off that summarily?

    I'm not really keen on the guy, but it seems that surely we'd have heard from him by now.

    Players who are about to turn 25 and who can't beat the AA level typically don't get much consideration.
    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    He got an invite to MLB camp, and is likely slated for AAA.

    He may never be a star, or he might just have taken longer. He's a little interesting considering what Louisville has for the OF this year.

    Re: Who is Reds #20 Prospect

    Here's my Michael Beltre case:

    He's got BA/OB skills. He's athletic. He's still young enough and has the frame to add some power. Everybody on this list needs to access stuff they don't currently have in pocket to get anywhere. Beltre needs to add less than most and he can climb to majors if he does it. He's a fairly ideal launch angle makeover candidate.
    Friends don't let friends fWAR.

    Coddle thy pitchers.

    I have to go with Jose Lopez here, he's got enough velocity on his FB and a good enough 2nd pitch to have value out of a mlb pen this year is my thinking. A lot of these guys won't ever reach the bigs.

    Who do you mean that are you voting for at 21? Freed died 23 years ago. I have no idea who you mean. TJ Freel?

    Or is the joke going over my head?
