    I didn't realize Smit was still on the board. Anyway, after Carroll becomes #27, here is how I have my voting ranked:

    Alex Smit
    Zach Cozart
    Evan Hildebrandt
    Ruben Medina
    Tzu-Kai Chiu
    Jordan Smith
    Sean Henry
    Justin Reed
    Jamie Gianchou
    Chris Heisey

    Jordan Smith pitched for Dayton, had a 3.84 ERA, a WHIP of 1.29 (fabulous for a starter) and a ground out/fly out ratio of 1.71, another fabulous stat.

    He was 21 last year and will turn 22 in a few weeks.

    Deserves consideration.

    His K numbers were so-so last year, but he did everything else well. He's still pretty young and has good stuff, so an improvement in that area isn't all that far-fetched. Is a Fisher-like breakout possible?

    Yea I vote Richie Gardner at least he has had success in AA and AAA and is still relatively young being that he missed a full season due to injury. Not sure why he's slipped this far...

    I think Gardner is too hittable to be anything beyond a #5 starter, and I don't think he has the ability to dial his pitches up a notch to be a particularly-good reliever either. AAA hitters were making him look silly, so until he keeps the ball down against more patient hitters, I won't be too excited about him.

    I wish Gardner well, he's come back from injury.

    But his AAA ERA last year was 5.71. When you say he's "had success in AAA" what are you referring to, perhaps I've missed it. Thanks for letting us know.

    I'll go with a low-ceiling, sure-to-see-MLB-time choice here.

    I saw Gardner and Steve Kelly pitch a doubleheader last year, and the two were indistinguishable, which isn't a real good thing. It was Gardner's first AAA start so I'll cut him a little slack, but the fact that he couldn't get above 88 isn't a mark in his favor.

    Re: Redszone Community Prospect Vote #27

    Beckett's rookie card rolodex had this to say about Carroll:

    Mid-rotation starter with #1 or #2 potential which got me pretty excited.

    Then I read this on Lotzkar:

    Kyle Lotzkar: Bats LEFT, throws RIGHT...top of the order LEFTY, but a few year's away...best compared to Ted Lilly.

    So, I'm not sure how much stock to put on Beckett now.

    I would put absolutely zero stock in them. I don't know who does their 'rookie rolodex' stuff, but its laughable for the most part.

    They could definitely use some help...was very disappointed with the newest rolodex though.
