    My vote for #1 is Alex Reyes.

    Does anyone remember where (or if) we slotted Jose Adolis Garcia in at?

    Also, correct my list if you see others’ that are ineligible. Kelly, Flaherty, Bader, Voit, and Alcantara are currently on the ML roster too, while Sierra and Mayers have been during the season.

    Reyes #1

    Voit could pass 130 ABs still but it seems unlikely. It would be a shame if he did. Then we wouldnt get to debate with bccran about him being underated.

    Bader could pass 130 only if he started every game the rest of the year which also seems unlikely.


    Alex Reyes.

    Reyes #1



    1. Carson kelly

    Injury changes a lot. Kelly is at a premium position and no matter reyes’ upside, kelly is IMO a decade long all star without the injury questions.

    Six of one, half dozen of another. Catcher prospects are undervalued. Not by me.

    Reyes #1

    Reyes #1


    Flaherty #1. Flaherty is a dominant pitcher and will be a starter in ’18. I could see him at the top of the rotation right behind Martinez during ’18. With Lynn not around, Wainwright uncertain, and Jack just becoming as effective as he was at AAA, he could pass both Weaver and Wacha. Reyes most likely will not enter the rotation, at least early on. Serious injuries and long DL stints are always in the back of my mind because they sometimes have consequences that aren’t always positive. So I have doubts regarding that. There’s is also that suspension that could become a much larger problem down the road.
    At this point in time I see Flaherty as the premier prospect. If Reyes can prove that he still will have the velocity and command that he had developed, I’d be more than happy to return him to #1. He could be a huge factor in ’18. Just show me and prove me wrong.

    I think Reyes can smoke all the weed he wants now that he’s in the majors!



    #1 Alex Reyes

    I assume everyone else just posting “Reyes” mean Alex Reyes and not Arturo Reyes.

    Flaherty is a good pitching prospect. Kelly is a good catching prospect. Obviously no one knows how Reyes recovers but he’s a potentially transformational prospect. He’s still No.1.



    … If healthy. Pitchers always have that caveat.

    Catching prospects like kelly are a hairs width from being that transformational prospect. Catchers are just that hard to find.

    If kelly puts up the same ops as he put up in aaa for ten years he will average 4-5 WAR offensively. That’s consistent all star and probably hall numbers.

    He is still developing. He could easily put up posey offensive numbers for a few years.

    He has plus defense.

    About the only bad thing you can say as a positional prospect is he isnt as talented as arod… Which is that once in a generation talent.

    I repeat : good catchers are stupidly difficult to find. And by stupidly difficult I mean they are chronically massively underrated because of things like this.

    Reyes? Oh he’s got the arm… IF HEALTHY… he also has between bad and horrible control issues when that isnt an issue.

    Young, right handed randy johnson (i make the comparison because of wildness issues)? I could see that. If he can eventually throw over 110 innings and harness the talent. Haven’t seen it really yet.

    Kelly? Seen it already. Just needs a shot in mlb.

    Readiness, position, and balance of plus offense and defense trumps the arm due to major injury questions, lack of innings shown, and lack of control.

    Obviously nobody shares my opinion but eh… Not the first time.

    P.s. Flaherty has an argument too.

    Carson Kelly by a hair over Alex Reyes due to Reyes injury.We all hope Reyes can return to what he was looking like before the injury.That said it could take until 2019 to see the pre-injury Reyes.Agrtee with Bnoonan.Carson Kelly gets my vote.


    Paid - Monthly

    But dont forget, Reyes has shown (when healthy) he can perform at the major league level. Kelly hasnt.

    Calling the vote for #1 for Alex Reyes.

    Voting can now start for #2.


    Paid - Annual

    Bader or O’Neill in a few picks….I don’t know.

    I like Carson Kelly here at #2.

    It’s too bad Weaver isn’t eligible. He and Kelly would’ve been a close call.


    Paid - Annual

    1. Reyes
    2. Kelly

    Kelly just barely over Flaherty at this point.


    Paid - Monthly

    Flaherty #2



    Sticking with kelly…

    As for reyes getting mlb players out… Nobody has denied his talent. Small sample sizes and all that.

    Trust me… This is one I’d happily be wrong about (not sure a current ranking opinion can be wrong barring reyes having a cy young year very soon or kelly imploding but regardless).


    Paid - Annual

    Kelly #2
