    Who is Redszone's #28 prospect?

    I hope no one minds, but it's pretty clear that Gregorius is going to take the
    #27 position, so I'm moving on. I figured we could either keep it at the current pace, or we could push it forward so we can hopefully move on to better discussions and possibly do a top-50 (or so) instead of a top-40.

    Prospect #1 - Aroldis Chapman, LHP
    Prospect #2 - Devin Mesoraco, C
    Prospect #3 - Yorman Rodriguez, CF
    Prospect #4 - Yonder Alonso, 1B
    Prospect #5 - Billy Hamilton, SS
    Prospect #6 - Yasmani Grandal, C
    Prospect #7 - Todd Frazier, IF/OF
    Prospect #8 - Juan Francisco, 3B
    Prospect #9 - Zack Cozart, SS
    Prospect #10 - David Sappelt, CF
    Prospect #11 - Donnie Joseph, LHP
    Prospect #12 - Ismael Guillon, LHP
    Prospect #13 - Brad Boxberger, RHP
    Prospect #14 - Chris Valaika, IF
    Prospect #15 - Kyle Lotzkar, RHP
    Prospect #16 - Ryan LaMarre, OF
    Prospect #17 - Juan Duran, OF
    Prospect #18 - Junior Arias, SS
    Prospect #19 - Sam Lecure, RHP
    Prospect #20 - Ronald Torreyes, IF
    Prospect #21 - Neftali Soto, IF
    Prospect #22 - Jonathan Correa, RHP
    Prospect #23 - Danny Dorn, 1B/OF
    Prospect #24 - Henry Rodriguez, IF
    Prospect #25 - Kris Negron, IF
    Prospect #26 - Daryl Thompson, RHP
    Prospect #27 - Didi Gregorius, SS

    I don't mind, but do we need to fix the time and date that the polls close? Poll #27 shows that it closes on 1-7, and this one on 1-9.

    I'm unable to change that, but I don't think it should make any difference. I won't do it this rapidly anymore.

    I'm sticking with Hotchkiss even if his near side arm action says reliever. Perhaps he can become another Scott Sullivan....but less overworked and greater longevity.

    Well, there was Jim Bunning. Don Drysdale. Ewell Blackwell.

    That Walter Johnson fella did pretty well for himself as a starter with a low arm slot too.

    Jacob Johnson time. Love his size and the fact that the organization let him start all year as a 19-year-old at Dayton. They must see something there as well.

    Another interesting guy to watch in 2011.

    His numbers might not merit a top 15 selection, but at this point, he has tremendous upside as the 28th selection in this poll.

    Glad to see the Johnson train picking up some steam. After voting for him much earlier, I've finally returned to his cause, since his prospects seem to be rising.

    And speaking of Johnsons and pitchers and trains--I didn't realize Big Train was a sidearmer (or nearly), as well. Good call, klw.

    Went with Cody Puckett. Good power, improved his plate discipline this year.

    Puckett again. I think he's underrated here.

    Puckett for me. Enough power and plate discipline that he should be considered legit. Could be a LF or 2B candidate in 2012.
    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...

    Barnhart.

    Had a pretty darn good year in 2010 at a premium position both with the stick and the glove.
