    Yorman Rodriguez. The guy simply has things that no one else has who is left to pick from. When I watch him swing a bat, there is just specialness in there.

    I went with 'other' because I think Frank Pfister is the best choice here.

    Can't believe you'd vote for Pfister when Corky is still available. Totally irresponsible.

    . . . At the risk of sounding as stale and passe as a '70s film: Torreyes! Torreyes! Torreyes!

    I would've, but Corky's no longer eligible.

    I went with Sappelt. I still think he will develop more as a player at the MLB level and actually be able to be a regular in the OF and hopefully give us a more well rounded OF.

    I am with you. Well, minus voting for him (though he is my #8 guy). I think he is underrated here at #10 and should be an average MLB outfielder next year, or better.

    Sappelt has exceeded all expectations and he better get a chance to play a valuable role (4th or 5th OFer) with the Reds next year but if he is a top 10 prospect, that is not a good sign for our system. I mean, if you like Sappelt, a good contact hitter with no power, serviceable defense and some speed then Torreyes is all those things with much better defense, a lot younger and thus possibly more potential. So why is Sappelt more popular? Frazier will be in a similiar utility role next year and I predict he will be more productive - not as good an average but much more power.

    Sappelt has done it at a higher level with more power. His range on defense is above average, not Stubbs level but a notch below, what hurts him is his arm. Sappelt is more popular because many believe he could hit 750-800 OPS while playing good D in CF or above average D in LF

    Torreyes. In the midwest league at age 18, you can't have a better season than this guy had.

    Sappelt has power. I don't know where you got the idea that he doesn't have any power from.

    Mike Trout disagrees with your statement.

    His stint with the Cincinnati Reds?

    By the way, Todd Frazier deserves some more votes soon. He has good power and versatility. He may not start right away, but he will play a role in the big leagues and is ready to help.
