    Re: Who is Redszone's #20 Prospect?

    I seen the previous poll was closed a few hours ago and OBM wasn't around so I thought perhaps he may have went away for the Holiday or something so I went ahead and took it upon myself to add it. I didn't add anyone to the previous list I just subtracted Fisher and left the list at 20 even.

    Sorry OBM, I couldn't wait.

    I'm still here. I was planning on starting the next one when I got home tonight or in the morning.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #20 Prospect?

    I'm going Adam Rosales, he is a guy who can hit for avg & power w/ discipline and play better than average defense in more than 1 spot. No he's not super talented in any one area but he has no significant flaws and he already has touched the bigs. I think this guy could eventually become a starting major league 2B and a fine one at that.

    I figure it like this if you like Justin Turner, Ryan Hanigan, Heisey and the like then really Rosales should be your pick here as neither have anything on him as far as I'm concerned. Rosales even still has a little upside which should make him a far better pro than Hanigan (even with the premium position) and nothing about Turner's game is better at all.

    No problem.

    I went with Dallas Buck. If Buck can regain his low 90's fastball, he's got a chance to develop into a #2 starter IMO. He's got strong groundball tendencies and a solid slider and changeup to go along with his fastball. I expect him to start in Double-A Carolina with a chance to reach Louisville by the end of the season.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #20 Prospect?

    hope people don't mind but i had a couple questions:
    it may be january before the rest of the prospects are ranked so of the top 20 what do people think of the fact that only 2 of the top 13 prospects are pitchers?

    also, again of the top 20, how many would you see have a ceiling of an above average or elite major league player and how many do you think have a ceiling of an average or part-time player?

    edit: woops, i probably should've waited til the 20th prospect was picked. well anyway, thanks in advance for any opinions or relevant pms.

    I think it looks worse than it is. We have young pitching in the majors, plus Homer Bailey. Still, you're right that we could use some low-level arms.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #20 Prospect?

    Alex Buchholz can flat out hit. Not only that, he had 16 walks in 150 plate appearances which makes me think he has good plate discipline. I expect a rapid rise through the minors next year for him.

    I agree I love Bucholz's game but feel like I need to see more & at higher levels before I put him above the likes of Rosales.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #20 Prospect?

    Hildenbrandt again. Interesting to me that this board really doesn't put much emphasis on upside at all. Guys are considered to be prospects who frankly, even at their best, will be among the dozens of basically fungible units out there while guys like Hildenbrandt--farther away from the bigs but with significant upside at the most important position on the field--get overlooked. Must be because the Reds have been so bad for so long--and their farm system so barren--that anybody who looks like he'll be a major leaguer is considered an important prospect.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #20 Prospect?

    I've gone with Dallas Buck the last 3 rounds so I'll stick with him. If he can put up the numbers he did through his senior year in college with torn ligaments and no velocity, that just tells me he know how to pitch and not just throw...so if he can regain any velocity that he had prior to the injury he could really surprise some people.

    Just curious, who do you think Hildenbrandt should rank ahead of? He's a good prospect but the only guys I could see putting him ahead of are Cozart and maybe Mesoraco.
