Hildenbrandt. Highest ceiling of any remaining starter. Stewart next for me. Frankly I don't see any of the remaining position players as even remotely competitive with these two guys as prospects. There are some guys among them who will become good major league players, but prospects need to have potential high ceilings and Hildenbrandt and Stewart are, IMHO, clearly ahead of the others (with possible exception of other pitchers like Sulbaran and Viola, especially if he can make the move to the rotation).

I'm torn between Cozart and Sulbaran, but I went with Cozart. People are still wondering if Valaika can play shortstop, and meanwhile, Cozart crushed A-ball and played the best defensive shortstop in the organization. I'm not saying Cozart's the better prospect--I just think there shouldn't be much distance between the two.

Give some love to the player who almost hit .400 in Billings this past season, Alex Buchholz. Even with less than 150 ABs in a hitter's league, that is impressive.

I like Bucholz but I think Stewart is currently more valuable thus the better prospect. Bucholz tore it up but so did Brett Bartles last season for Billings and we seen where that got him (cut). Bartles didn't do so good the 2nd time around. I don't believe Bucholz is that guy however Stewart did his thing at higher levels and seems to be a back of the pen option which is more valuable than a 2B which is exactly what I think Bucholz is albeit a slugging 2B.

I like Buchholz, although I agree at this point Stewart is a better bet and much closer. I've been a Buchholz fan since the pick and called it a steal when he was drafted. He won't flop but Billings is Billings - averages like that seem to mean nothing. It's a funny league - failing miserably is a huge warning flag there, but succeeding wildly is ho-hum and really signals little.

Maloney, and his winter ball stats are only raising his stock IMO.

This voting exercise would be a lot more fun if you all would just do me a favor and start voting for Maloney. I really don't want to vote for him 15 polls in row. Thanks in advance. :)

Stewart is running away with this one. Not sure who I'll go with at #15. I'll just wait to see who OBM can talk me into voting for. ;)

wow and this poll is open for 2 more days? it doesn't look like anyone will catch stewart.

edit: he currently has almost half of the 74 votes. there were only 100 votes in the last poll. it doesn't look like there is a need to keep it open for more than another day.

I didn't realize this was going to be such a blowout. I'll probably just start the next poll sometime tomorrow instead of waiting for Sunday night.

I just noticed you've voted for the same prospect as me in all but four polls. I knew I was your hero but I didn't know my influence was that strong. ;)

My hero is one Dusty Baker. Sorry OBM.

I will admit that in 2 or 3 of these polls I have used you and Doug as my "tiebreaker" when I had a couple of guys in mind.

Good one. I've always suspected OBM of being a closet Dusty Baker fan.

I heard a rumor that OBM and JT Snow have some sort of unbreakable bond and that he isn't overly fond of David Bell. :D

Dugout used?

Absolutely. Some of the toothpicks include saliva and blood from when Dusty jammed a toothpick into his jaw while cheering for a successful hit-and-run by Corey Patterson. It also comes with a free cup used and signed by Paul Bako. It's sweet. I'll sell it ya for a cool $500 dollars? It's worth it, dude. You better hurry up and buy it before BRM does.

Since this is a blowout, I'll probably open the next poll sometime this evening. Hopefully this poll can crack 100 votes.
