    Last year's community vote

    I will post a new list every 2 days with 10-15 options to vote on.

    If you feel like making an argument on why a guy should be voted here, feel free to vote and state why you voted for that player.

    If there is someone that is not currently listed as an option to vote on, vote for 'other' then just state who you want to vote for in the thread.

    If there is anyone you would like to see as an option on the next poll, just say so and if they garner enough support, they will be placed on the next poll. Guys with the lowest amount of votes will usually be removed for the next few guys who were talked about in the previous thread.


    Prospect 1 - Jay Bruce
    Prospect 2 - Homer Bailey
    Prospect 3 - Johnny Cueto
    Prospect 4 - Joey Votto
    Prospect 5 - Todd Frazier
    Prospect 6 - Drew Stubbs
    Prospect 7 - Matt Maloney
    Prospect 8 - Josh Roenicke
    Prospect 9 - Travis Wood
    Prospect 10 - Devin Mesoraco
    Prospect 11 - Kyle Lotzkar
    Prospect 12 - Danny Dorn
    Prospect 13 - Sean Watson
    Prospect 14 - Carlos Fisher
    Prospect 15 - Juan Francisco
    Prospect 16 - Neftali Soto
    Prospect 17 - Brandon Waring
    Prospect 18 - Adam Rosales
    Prospect 19 - Tyler Pelland
    Prospect 20 - Daryl Thompson
    Prospect 21 - Pedro Viola
    Prospect 22 - Chris Valaika
    Prospect 23 - Sam Lecure
    Prospect 24 - Marcus McBeth
    Prospect 25 - Justin Turner
    Prospect 26 - Chris Dickerson
    Prospect 27 - Scott Carroll
    Prospect 28 - Richie Gardner
    Prospect 29 - Justin Reed
    Prospect 30 - Paul Janish
    Prospect 31 - Alexander Smit
    Prospect 32 - Danny Herrera
    Prospect 33 - Zach Cozart
    Prospect 34 - Tzu-Kai Chiu
    Prospect 35 - Ramon Ramrirez
    Prospect 36 - Derrik Lutz
    Prospect 37 - Evan Hildenbrandt
    Prospect 38 - Josh Ravin
    Prospect 39 - Ben Jukich
    Just for reference this was last year.

    I'd say Soto, Ramirez, and Valaika improved their status the most this year. Besides a few guys who had down years, most of the prospects on the list maintained or improved their standing.

    You might say Dickerson made the most improvement. To go from where he was there to where 2008 ended. I still have real doubts that he can maintain his big league performance level. I have more faith in Hanigan. And Hanigan didn't even make that list. Maybe because of age?

    I think we had craig tatum at #40 and to be perfectly honest with you I didn't know a thing about Hanigan until this season. Chris Heisey, Sean Henry, and Shaun Cumberland could've been on their as well. Any other omissions? Robert Manuel took a big step as well

    It will be interesting to see who comes out of nowhere and does well next season

    I remember making a case for Hanigan over Tatum, but age was the main factor in why he was omitted, if I remember correctly.
