The toughest thing for the Reds to do this year is pick one player for the Chief Bender Award as the club's top minor-leaguer.
Do you go with Joey Votto ? He was hitting .313 with 21 home runs and 69 RBI going into the weekend. Add in .395 on-base and .558 slugging percentages and you get an idea of what kind of year he's having at Double-A Chattanooga.
Do you go with Jay Bruce ? He was hitting .305 with 41 doubles, 16 homers and 76 RBI for Single-A Dayton.
Do you go with Homer Bailey ? He has combined to go 8-5 with a 2.44 ERA in stops at Single-A Sarasota and Chattanooga. He has allowed 80 hits and struck out 127 in 118 innings.
