    Re: Who is Redszone's #11 prospect?

    I voted for Danny Dorn because of his great power and good on-base skills.

    I left this poll open for three days because (1) traffic on here slows down on the weekends, (2) I'm going to Tennessee tomorrow and won't be back until Sunday night. I'll start the next poll when I get home that night.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #11 prospect?

    I am sticking with Dorn for reasons I have previously stated. I noticed an 11th hour surge that put Mesoraco ahead of Dorn for second in the 10th place voting. I have no proof mind you, but I suspect voter fraud.

    My concern with Mesoraco is that early last season a report had his defensive fundamentals (footwork IIRC) requiring much work. Offensively, he seems to be on track, but the defense is a concern to me. Can anyone from Dayton comment?

    I went with Yorman. He seems like a great prospect, with huge potential. I almost voted for Mesoraco, but thought better of it.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #11 prospect?

    Based on Mesoraco's numbers from this year, what is everyones reasoning for voting him so high?

    Is it because he is a catcher? Or am I missing something?

    I say this because I saw Mesoraco a lot in Dayton this year during BP and during catching drills and I wasn't that impressed with him.

    Tools and position for me. He has tools and athleticism behind the plate that with some work can make him a very good backstop.

    He needs to seriously work on his footwork and throwing.

    He was throwing the ball into CF on simple catch and throw drills to 2B

    And it wasn't just a one time thing

    He did it on 4-5 throws in a row

    Re: Who is Redszone's #11 prospect?

    Roenicke for me.. I would have voted for him last when I voted for Zach Stewart, but must have missed his name. His combination of closeness to the majors, impact to his team and games, and his stuff is too much to ignore for me. I realize a lot of this is about projection, so I dont rule out guys who are far away.. but at some point being close to the majors with some projection left and a good ceiling is too much to ignore.

    I put him ahead of Dorn because I think Dorn is pidgeon holed as a platoon player. I dont like Dickerson at 10 personally, because I think he is what he is.. and he was close to Ramon Ramirez for me, but I'm not exactly sure what to make of Ramirez yet. I'd probably vote one of Ramirez, Stewart, or Mesoraco in the next vote. But I can't look past Roenicke right now.

    Dorn as stated before. Is the 3rd time the charm?
