Who is #7?

Mon Oct 09, 2017 1:39 pm

Rookie maximums for at-bats (130), games pitched (30) or innings (50) in the major leagues"

If the 2 leaders are within 5% of each other, or the leader has less than 35% there will be a run-off between the top 2.
*Rosario ineligible
*Dom ineligible

P.S. don't stress too much if you feel player X deserves to be on this list vs. player Y. It's extremely unlikely someone not yet nominated would be win any given poll. Nominate those you see fit.


1) Andres Gimenez (SS) 12/27 votes-44%
2) David Peterson (LHP) 12/24 votes-50%
3) Mark Vientos (SS/3B) 13/24 votes-54%
4) Peter Alonso (1B) 21/28 votes-75%
5) Thomas Szapucki (LHP) 10/22-45%
6) Justin Dunn (RHP) 4/20-20%, runoff with Lindsay/Guillorme/Kay 9/22-41%

Lindsey although a bad 2018 could kick him down quite a bit to say the least.

Went Dez in a “hope for the best” vote. If he doesn’t show real signs in 2018 (and health) he’s not much of a prospect regardless of where he was picked. 21 (this year) in A+ should be able to perform. No more excuses

I will wait on Kay. I voted for Lindsey and look forward (hopefully) for a breakout in '18.

HA! Was thinking the same thing. Its totally fair to say too (as someone who was/is a fan of both players).

I can see a good argument for Lindsay here. I was undervaluing his strong finish. You don't want to put too much weight into small samples, but with a guy with his profile, there's a decent chance he struggles in his first look at a level, and then his talent shows.

For a guy who will only be 21 next season, and hopefully in A+, he's still on track. It's a profile of a guy who could break out next year as a legit good prospect. The strikeouts are a concern, but he's young enough to keep working on that.

It's more likely the strikeouts will always be an issue, and then he turns into a Kirk Niuewenhuis type ceiling guy, but he's maybe too young still to limit his upside to that just yet.

I still have a good amount of confidence Dez becomes a useful piece.

It's easy to say "no more excuses", but harder to actually do.
Excuses, based on injuries should be listened to. People say Ali Sanchez can't hit, but he's also dealt with a couple fractured hamates. I'd like to see him get healthy before I subscribe to the argument that "he can't hit". Urena, who was once considered a fun prospect, had similar hand or wrist injuries that hurt his swing.

You don't want to be the Reds telling Gary Nolan (no more excuses), so he goes to the Dodgers doctor and that doctor finds a 1 inch bone spur that the Reds doctors missed. (Dr. Frank Jobe, and he shot the x-ray from a different angle, bone spur showed right up) If the excuse is real, it matters. This was the Nimmo problem when people started to write him off but now people like him again. Injuries will slow a guy down and that should be taken into account.

Jeff P has been Ali Sanchez biggest fan all along and called his upside at the beginning of the year a good backup. It’s not as if Sanchez before 2017 had all of these glowing reports. He might have that 2 years afo

People mostly were writing off Nimmo bc he hadn't had any monster seasons in the minors that gave people confidence. But very often players put things altogether only after they get to the show. Nimmo could (hopefully) fall into that bucket as he's got more refining to do.

If everything goes right, Luis Guillorme will be the next Ruben Tejada. Sadly that's been getting him votes since the start off this poll.

Is this a bottom 3 system? It would appear to be.
