RR Community Prospect Rankings: Another year in the books

5 weeks of voting have resulted in your best guess for the list of Reds top prospects for 2011.  NYC compiled what the so-called "experts" have had to say, so let's see how our list compares.

Listed here is the final RR list, plus mine and NYC's individual lists.  The "honorable mention" spots are the players who received the most votes throughout the final week but didn't make the list.

Another item of note. The Reds 13th round pick from last season, pitcher Lucas O'Rear, got injured playing basketball and will miss a good portion of next season with a broken ankle.  If you're unfamiliar with O'Rear and his story, he's the guy who the Reds drafted out of Northern Iowa (even though UNI doesn't have a team) and was the 6th man of the year in the Missouri Valley conference last year on the hoops team.  It's a tough blow for the Reds, as he put together a nice debut for them last year and didn't really have a future in basketball.  Kind of raises the question though: was it a mistake for the Reds to draft a kid with such a significant injury risk waiting in another sport?  Is there anything they could have done to better protect their investment?
