    I went with Dorn on the outside shot that he'll stick out of spring training. Several others, such as Negron and Thompson, seem just as worthy, though.

    Or people are taking that into account and not voting for them. Visa versa.

    I voted Dorn again.

    2010 - AAA age 24/25

    .302/.398/.545

    And he did that coming back from a fractured hand.

    I love Dorn. He's my favorite Louisville Bat.

    But, because of position and age, I'm voting Puckett.

    He'd be a great #2 hitter for the current squad, assuming his offense translates.

    I am taking it into account. If no team for two consecutive years is not willing to give him a shot there must be some issue the numbers are not telling

    Well, I've seen him for two years now and I'll be damned if I can see what it is. His lack of speed is certain but he is a solid ballplayer. He made only 2 errors all of last season.

    I think it likely that several players already picked are never going to reach Dorn's current level.

    Because teams try to be smarter than everyone else rather than just being smart and taking a guy who can be an average major leaguer. Go ahead and look at a lot of the guys taken this year. Multiple pitchers who have not pitched in High A were taken in the first few picks. Those guys have next to no shot at being in the majors in April. But they were taken. Dorn's problem is that he has split issues (though the good kind since he is a lefty) and he is limited to first base. He isn't a sexy type of pick for the Rule V because of that.

    I think Daryl Thompson's success in the minor leagues, his reasonably good showing in the major leagues, his apparent comeback last year, and some hopeful thinking about his injury situation, are good reasons for him to make the Reds' top 25. I voted for him at 23.

    This was the easiest vote I had in quite a while, and I voted for DT, too. You really have to love what he has done when healthy.

    Two tied at 10 votes each and two others have 8 and 9 votes...what should we do? A run-off with all four on the poll?

    That's not a run-off. That's more like a stampede. I like it.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    Re: Who is Redszone's #23 prospect?

    If we include Henry R in the runoff, there are only 23 loose votes available to break the logjam. The players may not separate much. Although he's only two votes behind, he is in fourth place. So I'd say leave him behind and do the runoff with three.

    That said, I don't feel strongly about it. No complaints if we go with all four.

    Sounds good to me.
