    Probably, unless they decide to jump Cozart from Low-A to Double-A, which is doubtful.

    There's a decent chance Valaika starts in AA. He did all there last year, but the Reds might want to see him do better than all right before moving him up to AAA.

    Then again, keeping Valaika in AA is what I'd do, so it's a safe bet the Reds will send him to AAA.

    I think this is what makes the most sense. The only other reasonable options would be keeping Frazier at shortstop or letting Jose Castro and Justin Tordi split time at shortstop. If Cozart starts the year hot in Sarasota, I could see him getting promoted quickly, which could result in Valaika being the starting second baseman in Louisville since Janish will probably hold things down at shortstop.

    I am with you that Frazier certainly has an extra little factor going his way with his leadership skills in the clubhouse. I just was wondering why you felt Frazier had it, but not the other guys.

    That's a silly statement. You have to back your assertion, doug doesn't have to disprove it.

    I picked EdE, though Frazier is the guy most likely to make me wrong.

    Edwin is a run producer and could consistently hit 30 or more homeruns as you can probably tell I voted for Edwin.
