    I went with Ryan LaMarre, a rich man's Drew Stubbs.

    I prefer ceiling at this stage in the game, so I'll go Rahier. Tons of offensive potential and great tools at third.

    I am on the Rahier train here as well. I like the tools, and at the plate his peripherals were good and the scouting reports on his bat came back as strong. Defensively, there is a lot of work to do.

    What makes you say Lamarre is a rich man's Stubbs?

    If anything, he looks like Stubbs minus the power potential. I'd say he is poor man's Stubbs, which is why most folks are looking at him as a potential 4th or 5th OF rather than a potential starter.

    Langfield again for me, though I understand the Rahier love.

    I think Langfield's got the higher floor and their ceilings are close enough for government work.

    Surprised Chad "Shark Bite" Rogers hasn't gotten more love. Great production, good peripherals, and a solid scouting report indicating a possible BOR innings eater. At AA and likely to help at least as a middle reliever. With nothing but success as a professional. After having pitched in a tough, tough league for pitchers and performing very, very well.

    All signs indicate a solid C+ prospect at least.

    Agreed. Still going Lutz, though. I'm simply intrigued by his physical prowess and the fact that he's been able to produce as he has after starting the game so dang late. It just seems like there might be a monster lurking inside him.

    All of these guys could go in any order for me and I would be just fine with it. All very close in prospect value IMO.

    Rahier had a .577 OPS. How can anybody vote for him?

    Only kidding. Relax.

    I went for Lutz because he did so well in the Arizona Fall League and has been very steady in his climb through the Reds minor league system. He looks like perhaps he will be able to hit major league pitching successfully. Looking forward to his work in the high minors to see how well he handles it.

    It was 43 at bats. 11 games. The AFL sample should really not be factored in at all.

    Yes, it should.

    Soto. A rebound puts him back where he was in previous years.

    Why? He didn't really exhibit any unseen before skill while there. Poor plate discipline. Power. Really high BABIP. This wasn't a pitcher going out there who all of a sudden showed 5 MPH that he never did before or a guy like Billy Hamilton going out there and all of a sudden hitting for power. He did what he has done in the past, but with a crazy BABIP that boosted his average.

    It sounds like you're saying his performance would hurt his prospect ranking. I'm okay with that. But it's silly to completely disregard a performance no matter what the context is.

    It's less than 50 at bats. Any information is worth factoring in, but it's a pretty negligible sample size in the grand scheme of things.
