    I went with Heisey again. I think he projects as a solid all-around major leaguer, similar to a Shane Victorino or Randy Winn type of player.

    The first seven were fairly easy, after this it's going to get tough, IMO.

    I think its been tough since number 2. I have Heisey at 4 on my list, so he's my choice here.

    Heisey again. I continue to beat the drum for a Stubbs/Heisey 1-2 in the batting order.....OBP, speed, and enough power to keep pitchers honest.

    I went with Cozart - he has the skills to be a ML SS someday. The sad situation is that we only have 4 good-to-excellent prospects (the first four listed) and of those I am only really comfortable with the potential of the top 2. Its too depressing for me to put a fourth OFer (Heisey) and a Starting pitcher with a below average breaking pitch (Wood) deep in the Reds top 10.

    Not that sad. Reds have Bruce, Bailey, Votto, Cueto, hopefully Volquez, Stubbs, Dickerson, Hanigan, Janish and others all at the major league level. It only figures that the top prospect list will be a bit shorter now.

    I hear you. ML quality defense at SS goes a long, long way (despite the inordinate amount of errors this past season). Still, Heisey displayed exceptional OB abilities plus power at the plate, to go with his prowess on defense at CF. Hell, he's still doing it out in Arizona. Gotta go with him here, IMO.

    I'm a 100% behind you on this. The Reds biggest need to me isn't a big bat it's guys who get on base at the top of the order. Votto is capible of driving in 125 runs, Phillips a 100, Rolen 75, Bruce 100... BUT only if the top 2 guys can get on. Stubbs and Heisey provide that and Plus Defense which helps supress runs against.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    Re: Who is Redszone's #7 prospect?

    I feel like I'm supporting the Green candidate here, I'm sticking with 6'4" lefty Matt Maloney who strikes out just under a batter per inning and walks batters 5 times less than that. This future #4 with excellent command is worth more in my eyes than future #4 outfielder, 24 year old Chris Heisey.

    Maloney is most ready now, which actually counts for something in my book. He's proven the most and he's now a MLB prospect.

    Heisey again. It seems like he should run away with this pick.

    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.
