    Who is your Minor League MVP?

    I think it's a little different than the most talented, Alonso is probably the most talented but who had the MVP year, a pitcher or batter?

    Mine, I'll go with Chris Heisey.

    Agree on Heisey. He was in the conversation for minor league player of the year while he was at AA. He had some trouble in AAA though. He still had an OPS that was 70 Points higher than Stubbs in AAA though.

    Juan Francisco, I am not a fan of his future, but to deny his minor league present is, to overlook one of the best minor league seasons by a Reds prospect in a very long time.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    quoted for truth.

    If Stewart were still in the organization, it'd be a tough call though.

    100% agreed. I'd probably add Justin Lehr as a close second and pitcher of the year. He might not be a prospect but he dominated AAA this year. Travis Wood was good as well but, like Heisey, put up his best numbers at a lower level prior to his promotion.

    I'll go with Travis Wood. 167 IP, 1.77 ERA, 1.04 WHIP.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    He was my pick. It should have been Alonso, but he was hurt and didn't have as good of a season as I hoped.

    Easy answer on this one. Wood wasn't only the best pitcher in the organization this year, he was arguably the best pitcher in all of the minor leagues this year. He finished second in ERA in the minors and threw 30 more innings than the guy who won the ERA title by 0.05. Heisey had a very good year. Francisco had a good year. Wood had one of the best years in baseball.

    Hitter - Chris Heisey, with Juan Francisco a close second.

    I'll buy that and change my vote.

    Seems like it's gotta be either Heisey or Wood. They were headlines all year; well, most of the year. I like Francisco a lot and, unlike many, think he has a terrific major-league future, but he was quiet for much of the season at Carolina. Heisey far exceeded him there. And Wood's season at Carolina was practically epic.

    Travis Wood. I know about major league projections and all...but I'm looking forward to seeing him compete at the next level. He could be a sleeper in my opinion (being that he isn't projected as a 1 or 2 at the MLB level).
