    Anyone is welcome to start the next poll on Sunday around this time. Otherwise, it may not start until a little later.

    I am struggling with who to pick. It's either Soto or Torreyes. I went with the former because of age. (bad reason, but oh well)

    I'm going with Todd Frazier. I've seen some people act like his lack of position is a weakness when I actually see it as a strength. An .800+ OPS bat plays well at any position, and he happens to play at least three positions pretty well.

    It's sad to me that guys like Frazier and others will be ranked so "low" because of how stacked this system is. I am still not a fan of how high a couple of people have been ranked, but oh well.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #8 prospect?

    I have Yorman ranked higher than #8, so he is an easy pick for me here. Too much upside for me to vote anyone else above him. I think at this point next year there are going to be plenty of people wondering why he was ranked so low.

    In my personal rankings Yorman would be 7-8 because Cozart would probably have not been top 10 for me but Soto is still on the board so I am voting for him. Yorman will be next for me.

    I had Boxberger at 7 and Stephenson at 8. So I went with Boxberger here. I look for him to be a stalwart in the pen for the Reds for many years. Can't wait for him to get here hopefully within the next year...

    Just a friendly reminder from last year: the voting is public, so there really isn't much need to declare who you're voting for and call it a post. It's the equivalent to typing "Yes" and clicking the 'Post Quick Reply' button. If you'd all like, I rephrase the questions as, "Who is RedsZone's #__ Prospect and Why?"

    Re: Who is Redszone's #8 prospect?

    Ronald Torreyes will be headed to High-A at age 19.

    He is a career .364 hitter.

    He has a career OBP of .419 with an OPS of .935.

    His defense at second base has been highly praised.

    He runs well.

    He plays the game right.

    He turned his team around.

    Not sure what else he can do.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #8 prospect?

    I love Torreyes as a prospect and am very excited about him, but does anyone here see him as having an OPS better than .750? As far as I'm concerned, that's his ceiling, which is pretty solid, but with the players still on the board, I have my sights set higher for the #8 prospect.

    Pretty much. He's done it all in a notorious pitcher's league this last year as well. Scouts these days (carries over to the NBA) often vastly overrate size compared against results. He was my pick as well.

    I think there is a chance he could be better than that. With that said, if he is ever over .800, I would be really surprised.

    Yeah, it's pretty comical that you used age as a reason to pick someone over Torreyes. However, I think Soto is a great pick here. He hit 31 home runs in only 106 games as a 22-year-old. There's a long list of offensive superstars who have never been able to pull off anything close to that. Fwiw, Votto missed only 1 game this year and hit 'only' 29 home runs. Jay Bruce played 157 games and hit 32 home runs this year. In terms of power alone, we're almost talking Adam Dunn-type numbers.
