Im a prot warrior with def capped. Currently i have some confusion among the stats (dodge, parry, block, stam, block value). Can anyone help me point out which is more important so that its easier for me to gear up.
Items like http://www.wowhead.com/?item=37646
And items like http://www.wowhead.com/?item=37872
gives me a headache. Cause they add around the same value and both stats are kinda important. Epic warriors help me out please.

There is no need for a headache. Protection warriors dont have just 1 tanking set. You can create a few, depending on the situation (eg, more threat oriented sets and more avoidance oriented setups).
For deciding which, where this site may help you in the future:http://www.maxdps.com/warrior/protection.php
Depending on your stage and the difficulty level of the content gear setup goes for, put the defence/threat zip accordingly.
Here in particular you got Threat neck: http://www.wowhead.com/?item=37646
avoidance neck. The typical manner is to use avoidance sets for progress content (raids, hard bosses), while threat setups on easy contents (thrash, 5mans, OTing etc). Threat setups are also better for solo grind.
Trinkets are a bit different. This http://www.wowhead.com/?item=37872
suits good only for aoe tanking of easy thrash. SBrating isnt as important for warriors as SBValue. We arent Tankadins. And we got http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=2565
(10s duration, 40s cd = 25% uptime). The trinket offers heavy SBV though but only on use, so as i said above. Only situational.

on regular basis.
