    Junior Arias. He hit for better power to all fields than anyone in the system sans Neftali Soto. I will dream on his power and hope his plate discipline picks up as he ages and matures.

    Right-handed starting pitcher -- Josh Smith, Dayton (26 games): 14-7 with a 2.97 ERA in 142 2/3 innings. He led all Reds Minor League pitchers in wins, ERA, strikeouts (166), WHIP (1.09) and batting average against (.228). Only walked 33 throwing 3 pitches for strikes. 24 years old. I've been voting for him since about pick 20. Should I give up?

    Don't give up... I voted for him this round as well. At some point, you can't ignore the stats, and the truth is that no matter the lack of optimal fastball speed, league, and age, Smith put up better numbers than Corcino in every reasonable category this year. He's got a plus curveball to make him at least a viable bullpen candidate, and he could be a fast mover if the upper minors start hurting for decent starters. The age is a serious question, but it's certainly not unheard of for older prospects to make a splash, and Smith seems to have good pitching instincts.

    Villareal. Best arm on the board, and none of the hitters has been out of rookie ball (except Diaz, who I don't count as a prospect).

    I went with Smith again. Can we add Cespedes to the list soon?

    Smith. Sick K numbers, hopefully he jumps to AA. A rotation of him Sulbaran and Crabbe would be something nice for Pensacola
