Last year's rookies, top community prospects for future performance #18


Well, I guess you have made it to the big time when accusations start to fly that your polls are being stuffed.  I'm honored, I suppose, but really I just want to make it through to 25 with the controversey limited to who are the best players.  After a three way runoff, Cahill and Coghlan were within 1% of each other, so we are calling #16 and #17 a tie.  While Blanks also performed credibly in the run-off poll, let's allow the 40% of the community  that voted for Cahill or Coghlan in round 16 to weigh in here before deciding who is #18.  Anyway, this is where we are so far:

1. Matt Wieters, C Baltimore

2. Tommy Hanson, P Atlanta

3. Andrew McCutchen, of Pittsburgh

4. Brett Anderson P Oakland

5 Gordon Beckham, 3b CHW

6. Rick Porcello, P Detroit.

7.Elvis Andrus, SS Texas

8. Colby Rasmus, of St. Louis

9. David Price, P Tampa Bay

10. Travis Sinder, of Toronto 

11.  Dexter Fowler, of Colorado

12. Chris Tillman, p Baltimore

13t. Matt Latos, p San Diego

13t  Derek Holland, p Texas

15. Cameron Maybin, of Florida


16t Chris Coghlan, of Florida

16t Trevor Cahill, P Oaklan 

Jeff Neimann, Luis Valbuena, Drew Stubbs, Gerardo Parra, and Julio Borbon all drew less than 5% last round and are temporarily dropped from the poll.  All will return in a later poll, although begining with #20, players who have  particularly low support in a round, will not be returned to any subsequent poll, assuming we cut this at #25, which I think is just about right.

With only 4 players returning from last round's poll, Mat Gamel, Randy Wells and Everth Cabrera are returned for another chance, and Tommy Hunter, Brad Bergesen and Casey McGehee all get their first chances this round.

 temporarily dropped from the poll (percentage and round in parens) J.A. Happ 1% (12), Daniel Bard 2% (13), Marc Rzepcynski 2% (15), Ricky Romero 3% (15), Jeff Neimann 2% (16), Luis Valbuena 0% (16), Drew Stubbs 4% (16), Gerardo Parra 0% (16), Julio Borbon 1% (16)
