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. If a run-off results in a tie the tiebreaker will be vote total in the previous poll, we will continue to "go back" in the polls until there is a clear leader.
*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.
** Executive decision, pulled the plug early on #7. By having the polls begin in the morning it allows for a more lively discussion. Lindsay was running away with the vote. Same with #10. Poll #11 will only have 9 options, I accidently had Kay listed a second time (copy and paste, sue me lol)

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%
7) Desmond Lindsay (OF) 12/26-46%
8) Luis Guillorme (SS) 8/25-32%, run-off with Kay 11/22-50%, advances due to more votes in previous poll
9) Anthony Kay (LHP) 9/24-38%, run-off with Bashlor 10/20-50%, advances due to more votes in previous poll
10) Tyler Bashlor (RHP) 11/16-69%
11) Tomas Nido (C) 6/24-25%, run-off with Molina and Oswalt 12/20 60%
12) Marcos Molina (RHP) 6/20-30%, run-off with Evans 13/20-65%
13) Ronny Mauricio (SS) 6/17-35%
14) Gavin Cecchini (2B) 6/23-26%, run-off with Mazeika 12/15-80%
15) Chris Flexen (RHP) 8/26-31%, run-off with Mazeika/Thompson 8/11-73%
16) Patrick Mazeika (C) 6/22-27%, run-off with Thompson 8/14-57%

I wonder if the experts rank Thompson this high. I like him, don't get me wrong. But I wonder what BA or Jeff Paternostro would say about Thompson at 17.

Also, can I nominate Uceta, or are we backed up in nominees?

Thompson has a "shot" to be an MLB starting position player... in a bad system he absolutely belongs in the top 20.

Jeff called Thompson an "extra" guy as a big leaguer ie mlb upside but not a difference maker and probably not a regular.

Bautista

Of the choices, he has the best chance imo to have an entended MLB career.

That mixture of contact and power tends also to be predictive of future success. Thompson hasn’t replicated the sort of numbers he produced at Miami, but his skills haven’t entirely eroded, either. Moreover, Thompson seems to have turned lemons into lemonade wherein his defense is concerned. Despite entering professional ball with only a medicore defensive reputation, Thompson was worth +10 runs at third over 50 games at short-season Brooklyn in 2015 according to Clay Davenport’s fielding metrics. Last year, Thompson produced +12 runs defensively in 45 games at Low-A Columbia per Davenport’s methodology. With an average bat and average third-base glove, he’d profile as a solid-average regular. That profile appears to be within his reach.

And his followup in August

avid Thompson, 3B, New York NL (Profile)
The author’s professional opinion regarding Thompson hasn’t changed much since he was featured among the Five back in June, nor since this offseason when he received the designation of Cistulli’s Guy in Eric Longenhagen’s organizational prospect list for the Mets.

That opinion, summarized by way of a brief, numbered list?

As a collegiate, Thompson exhibited prodigious offensive skills but less prodigious defensive ones.
As a professional, he’s exhibited more or less the opposite of that.
Given his track record, though, any sign of those prodigious offensive skills is cause for note.

Yeah I think Thomspson is a safe bet to land somewhere around here (if not higher) on the professional lists. He was a 4th round pick, Not top of the draft, but not later where more fringy guys with little upside go. He was pretty well regarded out of college, one of the top power hitters in Division I baseball.

And his profile hasn't changed much. He hasn't performed well enough obviously to turn that into blue chip type projected starter status. But he hasn't been awful. Hit still .263 with 16 HR and 68 RBI this year in Binghamton, after an even more solid year offensively in 2016. His glove now looks solid (better than was believed at draft time), he has good plate discipline, he doesn't strike out too much, and the raw power is still there for him to potentially put up better numbers down the road than he has yet shown.

I think he might be a top 20 guy in most systems. Though I don't really think the Mets are even that thin in the 15-20 range, I think the weakness in this system is mostly at the top. If you are lucky enough to have a couple of guys break out big next year, the system could quickly be back to middle-of -the pack.
