    Love the tools and upside of Arias more than anything else on the board.

    LeCure still, also like Arias a great deal. Like both better than Chris Valaika in fact.

    I'd actually go with Matt Maloney here. Not sure why he isn't eligible. Went with Kris Negron, though Arias, Corcino and Correa woud all be ok here as well. After that maybe Soto, Smith, Lecure and Torryes.

    All ahead of Valaika on my list.

    Matt Maloney isn't eligible because he has pitched more than 50 innings as a Major Leaguer.

    Negron again for me.

    2B will be interesting to watch this year. I suspect that the Reds will not want to simply pick up BP's option for 2012. They will want to either negotiate a longer term contract or look for alternatives within the organization. Any of a number of candidates could emerge. Ideally, one would want a top of the order, plus defender who can steal a base and hit 10-12 HR's. Of those qualifications, I suspect defense is the least negotiable. Hamilton and H-Rod are not likely to be ready by 2012. Puckett may not be able to stick at 2B defensively. Buchholz needs to stay healthy for a full season. Nor does he have top of the order speed or middle of the order power. I suspect that Valaika will hit, but lacks the speed that would make him the ideal candidate. At the moment, Negron seems to be the most viable near term alternative. I suspect that is why the Reds added him to the 40.

    What's the word with JC Sulbaran? I noticed he threw less than 100 innings this year, was he hurt?

    I recall him going on the DL with finger blisters.
