Ok, we've already done one of these for positional players and it's time to do one for the pitchers. Luke helped me out with the list of pitching prospects. If you don't see someone on the list you would have liked to of voted for, please list him in the comments so he can be in the next poll (if he would have had more votes than someone else that was listed).

Once again, please limit your votes to a total of 10.

Edit:
Thought I would add an additional question to the poll.

Yikes, I have a hard time finding 10 to be impressed by on that list, and that's including me picking the top 3 pitchers from this years draft. Is Beliveau too old to be a prospect now?

I suspect votes are going to be all over the place on this one. Once you get past the top three or four arms in the system, there isn't much separation.

That was a difficult vote. Went with the ones I heard the most about.

Really hard vote. I don't know too much about the kids just drafted and otherwise there are pitchers in the system that are below or at average for there level. Most of these kids will never even see the friendly confines.

I hear the batting practice pitching machine in AA is looking pretty good. Has some consistent mechanics.

That was rough, hope by Aug. 1 there are some new names there. Also, I definitely voted for Eric Jokisch solely because I think his name is funny.

I only voted for 7, 3 of which were just drafted so who knows.. I really hope we only trade for pitching prospects in the upcoming trades, as we need it big time.

Ben Wells should be on there. He hasn't pitched lately due to his arm injury and just completely slipped my mind. He could replace Kevin Rhoderick.

Brooks Raley is a little more iffy. Certainly a candidate though.

That would fall into the "please list him in the comments so he can be listed in the next poll" option.

If they'd been listed, I would have chosen Ben Wells and Tony Zych over P.J. Francescon and Michael Jensen.
