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


Wells and Zych are both worthy candidates, but not over those two guys I think.

Beeler and Rhoderick would probably be the first two off the list.

That goes to show how deep/unimpressive this bunch is. Beeler and Rhoderick have had a combined 7 votes so far.

I was thinking the same thing, Zych should have been on this list.

Petition to add I Cubs Brooks Raley, Chiefs Starling Peralta, DSLer Carlos Rodriguez, and new guy Paniaqua.

How sad is it that our 3 best pitching prospects in the mid-upper levels are Raley, Loosen, and Struck, each of whom have the ceiling of a 4 starter. In the lower, it's Maples, who has yet to throw a baseball and our three 2012 picks who have proved a combined zilch.

Your second paragraph is exactly why I leaned on Luke to come up with the list. Paniagua was not on the team when the list was made and will be on the next one.

The names you listed is the exact reason I requested everyone to list who else they would like to see on the list. The further you get down the list the more they start to blend together. I will total up the write-in votes later in the week and update the totals. I am planning on using this vote (and acquired pitchers) in the next list.

The pitcher from South Africa is Tayler Scott, not Taylor Scott. Obvious additions for the next list are Tony Zych, Ben Wells, Juan Carlos Paniagua, Daury Torrez, Carlos A. Rodriguez and, of course, Arodys Vizcaino.

Less obvious, but in my top 20 pitchers, Christian Hendricks.

I would resist adding Torrez and Rodriguez just yet.

I have been busy moving into a new house (and no internet). I am still planning on a full summary with the write in ballots. It should be up sometime this week. I have a bit of catching up to do at work after a week "vacation" of moving, back to school, unpacking, moving, unpacking and trying to fit in some fun. Can I get another vacation from my vacation?

I thought we were going to redo this poll with some new names added, such as Ben Wells, Juan Carlos Paniagua, Kyle Hendricks and Arodys Vizcaino added, and more professsional innings pitched by Maples and the 2012 draftees. Was I mistaken?

We'll get there, but since there are only two weeks or so left to go in the season, we might as well wait for the season to end so as to maximize the look we get at each guy.
