2011 MINOR LEAGUE PLAYER OF THE YEAR Community Poll

*No one who has exceeded rookie qualifications or who will exceed them (Brett Lawrie, Paul Goldschmidt for certain) is eligible.
*No one from short-season ball. There will be a separate contest for that.

The nominees:
Gary Brown, OF, Giants
Vince Catricala, 3B, Mariners
Bryce Harper, OF, Nationals
Ryan Lavarnway, C, Red Sox
Rymer Liriano, OF, Padres
Devin Mesoraco, C, Reds
Will Middlebrooks, 3B, Red Sox
Jurickson Profar, SS, Rangers
Anthony Rizzo, 1B, Padres
Mike Trout, OF, Angels

There were some very tough calls here. I didn't list Oscar Taveras due to his injury problem but he was another candidate. Trout might end up exceeding the rookie limits but it will be close. I will keep this poll open a couple of days, and if there is not a runaway winner we can do a runoff between the top few candidates.
