I'm not sure how old he is, but I am sure that Jose Tabata was just elected the #25 rookie among last year's class for future performance.
Here is the voting from last round: Jose Tabata 26%, John Jaso 17%, Jonathon Niese 17%, Mike Leake 14%, Michael Saunders 10%, Carlos Carassco 2% (write in), Drew Storen 5% (write in), Danny Valencia 5% (write in), Peter Bourjos 2%, John Axford 0%, Josh Thole 0%, Alcides Escobar 0%
Through 25 rounds (and with just two remaining) the standings are now:
5. Michael Stanton, outfielder Florida Marlins
25. Jose Tabata, outfielder Pittsburgh Pirates
Based on last round's voting I am going to permanently drop Peter Boujos (who got one vote) and John Axford, Josh Thole and Alcides Escobar all of whom got no votes last round. I am going to bring back Jake Arieta and Gaby Sanchez this round and for the first time add Brandon Allen and Sergio Santos. Drew Storen, Carlos Carassco and Danny Valencia were all write ins last round but showed enough strength to keep them on the ballot.
Permanently dropped players: Michael Brantley 0% 23, Andrew Cashner 0% 23. Brennan Boesch 0% (24), Brett Wallace 0% (24), Alexi Ogando 0% (24), Peter Bourjos 2% (25), Alcides Escobar 0% (25), Josh Thole 0% (25), John Axford 0% (25)
In (final) round 27 I am going to add the three temporarily dropped players along with 1 to 2 from among Chris Johnson, Brooks Conrad, Alex Sanabia and Wilton Lopez.. If you have any preferences among them or if you want anyone else added instead, please discuss below. Obviously you shouldn't propose adding anyone at this point, unless, at a minimum you are prepared to vote for them yourself.
As a reminder voting is by +1.
