    I don't of think relievers as failed starters. If they weren't any good they would suck in the bullpen too. What most relievers are is limited - control issues or limited repertoire but good relievers have very good pitches but not the 3 or4 needed to start and make it through a lineup multiple times. Relievers are also valuable as heck - in today's game a good argument could be made that they are as important as starters. Kuhnel (and Hendrix) both have a good chance of being valuable additions. Probably a much better chance than Callihan or Hinds have of being everyday payers in the majors. I understand the "ceiling" vote and agree wit hit, I just think Kuhnel has a pretty good ceiling, too, as a lockdown closer (I'm not saying he'll be one but the ceiling is there with him). I'll be on Callihan and Hinds really soon but I went with the despised reliever prospect here.
    I just don't see it. I don't think he's got a closer ceiling and I think he's far more likely to be an up and down arm this season who is outrighted off the roster after 2020 than a bullpen cog for this season, let alone multiple seasons.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Callihan now, Hinds next

    If they tie that'll be fine by me.

    This looks like it may actually be the first close round.

    At this point all of the prospects have significant warts. The three top vote getters this round are a guy who has a 740 OPS in rookie ball, a minor league reliever, and a guy who has played in 3 games total.

    Siri is a fourth outfielder in the majors right now if the Reds wanted him to be. At the bare minimum he's a Billy Hamilton clone. I'll take that over rookie ball lottery tickets at this point.

    To be fair to Kuhnel, I almost went with him. But as somebody said before, I actually want to see a minor league reliever come up through the Reds system and be decent first.

    I hadn't check in here in awhile (I don't know enough to vote on most of these guys).

    But DeLeon is still a prospect? Yes please!
