Neftali Soto or Brad Boxberger?
I will take Boxberger in this one. Upside plays a key role here as I still see Boxberger's upside as a #1 starter, while Soto's bat has plenty of potential defensively he just won't provide the value.
I'll go with Soto. He showed advanced hitting ability in the lower minor league levels at a very young age. Defense is an issue and he didn't do well at High A, but he was a top five prospect for the Reds last year. I think 9 is about right for him now.
Boxberger is a high draft choice and, while he has upside, there's no pro ball track record except some underwhelming AFL numbers. I'm glad Box projects well, but I think Soto's 2008 performance in the minor leagues at a very young age gives him an edge.

I voted Maloney, but will go Soto here. Recent draft choices tend to get too much helium, I think.
I guess I'll go Soto. I also think Maloney should have been in the runoff
I'll pass on voting on this one in protest of my man Maloney being left out of the mix.

With about 30 votes to be reallocatedHe was 6 votes off of the leader....
Because the top 4 went 29-26-23..............5.Sure, but then why not bring in the 4th place guy too who may be in also? Gotta stop somewhere and we decided on 3 votes before the polls started.
Maloney - no vote
I won't vote since Maloney was not included.
