    Who is RedsZone's #6 Prospect

    Our story so far:

    1. Homer Bailey
    2. Jay Bruce
    3. Joey Votto
    4. Johnny Cueto
    5. Travis Wood

    I've added enough names to the list to bring it up to an even dozen. Again, if you think I'm missing someone who should be considered soon, let me know.

    I'm sure "Joey" Hamilton forgives you.

    Re: Who is RedsZone's #6 Prospect

    The drop off from #5 is really big isn't it? I think Sean Watson, Josh Ravin, Drew Stubbs, Chris Valaika and Milton Loo all have promise but I need to see something beyond rookie ball to put a guy in the top 10. Just my preference. Chris Dickerson and Cody Strait have tools but are on-base challenged. (Need to trade these guys to leatherpants.) Paul Janisch is growing on me, but right now he still seems like a dime a dozen utility MI. Joey Hamilton may not stay with the Reds and has the drug thing dogging him. Obispo is a complete unknown. Bobby Livingston is too soft a tosser to likely contribute.

    That leads me to my vote for Sam Lecure. 141 innings at A+, very passable HR, Walks and K's. He has the look of a mid rotation inning eater. If the Reds can produce a few of those from within its a huge plus. One asset for a small market team is the ability to avoid the trap of paying $5 to $6 Million for guys like Steve Trachsel and Kyle Lohse to stink up the bottom of the rotation. Having even bottom end of the rotation guys in the pipeline is a step in the right direction.

    Its a big year for Lecure. He'll be making the biggest jump in baseball from A+ to AA. If he does well, he moves into the Reds upper echelon IMO.

    Chico Ruiz, you are doing a fine job with these polls. Given my comments about the other guys on the list, please add David Shafer, John Coutlangus, Calvin Medlock and Carlos Fisher to the next poll.

    Gotta go Stubbs here...though I'm not in love with his bat, he can add value with speed and his glove.

    I voted Stubbs. This is the part where the prospects are real tightly bunched.

    I went with Valaika. Dude had a historic and amazing offensive season, along with being at a premium position... voila.

    Yikes...I've been up since 2am; does it show? If someone knows how to edit poll options, please let me know; I'm embarrassing myself.

    please add David Shafer, John Coutlangus, Calvin Medlock and Carlos Fisher to the next poll.
    Considered all of them for this poll, but couldn't see including one without including them all. Plus Pelland, Guevara, Salmon, Dumatrait.. they're all kind of bunched IMHO. I will stick them in the next poll, although by the time I'm finished typing, their names may not be recognizable...

    I went with Stubbs over Valaika. Stubbs, while very unimpressive with his batting average, showed some pop in his bat, his speed swiped him 20 bases and he plays great defense and knows how to take a walk.

    Re: Who is RedsZone's #6 Prospect

    why is hamilton on the list? he has to be on the major league roster, so he is no longer a prospect.

    Thanks, but it may not matter. Looking like I'll get to vote for Lecure a couple more times.

    Re: Who is RedsZone's #6 Prospect

    I voted for Stubbs due to his defensive prowess and plate discipline, but this is a huge season for Stubbs to break out at least a little bit. If he doesn't perform this season for whatever reason, then it may start to look dicey for him.

    I voted for Valaika, who is a hitting machine. He will move fast. More patience will be needed for Stubbs.
