    We're getting short on options for the next poll. Feel free to make suggestions for players you'd consider selecting soon. Otherwise, it'll be up to me, and it's very rare for anyone to trust my decision-making in regards to anything. Then again, it's not an important life decision, so maybe I can handle it.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #7 prospect?

    Torreyes for now.

    For later, might I suggest Didi Gregorius, J.C. Sulbaran and Tucker Barnhart?

    Re: Who is Redszone's #7 prospect?

    I went for Box over Stephenson here because of his track record in the minor leagues. I think it's a close call between the two. IMO they should be picks 7 and 8 in some order.

    For the next round, I'd suggest Juan Duran. Ryan Lamarre. David Vidal. Josh Smith. Devin Lohman (I know, not a RedsZone fave). Didi Gregorius. Brodie Green. Josh Fellhauer. Ryan Wright. Sean Buckley. Gabriel Rosa. Henry Rodriguez. And I agree, Sulbaran and Barnhart.

    Soto, I really hope we don't have a RP go this early with our farm system....

    And I hope Soto doesn't go this early based on one year which can turn out to be an aberration. And even with that year, he's now a first baseman which requires a whole lot of offense to be an MLB regular.

    It just depends on your vantage point.

    I hope we just pick the best prospect. Who I think is Boxberger.

    I'd try and keep the list manageable. Maybe add 5 names.

    Going with Boxberger here at this spot. I think he will be able to step into nicely iinto the Reds bullpen and contribute at some point towards the second half of next season and be a stalwart down there for years to come.

    One season?? He struggled a bit in the Florida state league which is known to suppress offense but other wise has been a solid bat who broke out on the potential we all saw from the beginning.

    Going Sappelt here. He's at least an awesome 4th OF, but probably a starter. I like his approach a lot.

    Soto, Stephenson, Torreyes and in that order...

    Blows my mind that people are still picking Boxberger when RP's just don't have enough impact on the game to choose even a high-upside RP'r over high-ceiling hitters/sp...

    Same for me. I think we will be voting him for a while though.
