    Wrapping up the Top Prospects Poll

    We're at 30 with 3 weeks to go till regular season. I apologize for not being as diligent this year as I should have. To get it wrapped up at 40 I think I will do a megapoll where you can vote for as many as you want (although logically you should vote for no more than 10).

    I'll include these names

    Jacob Heatherly (20) - LHP from Cullman, AL. 3rd Round draft in 2017. 5.82 ERA in Greeneville.
    Ryan Hendrix (24) RHP from Texas A&M. Drafted in 5th Round of 2016 Draft. 1.76 ERA in High A last year
    Joel Kuhnel (23) - RHP from UT Arlington. 11th round pick in 2016. 3.04 ERA in Daytona out of bullpen.
    Drew Mount (22) - PF from Kansas St. 16th round pick in 2018. 8 homers, .310 Avg and .850 OPS in Billings
    Packy Naughton (22) - LHP from Va Tech. 9th Round pick in 2017. 4.03 ERA in Dayton.
    Alex Powers (27) - RHP. AA Closer in 2018. 18/20 Saves. 2.34 ERA and .097 Whip. Acquired as FA after release by W Sox.
    Wennington Romero (21) LHP form DR. 4.82 ERA in full season as starter at Daytona as 20 year old.
    Reiver Sanmartin (23) - LHP from Columbia. 2.81 ERA across several levels in 2018. Acquired from Yankees in Sonny Gray trade.
    Debby Santana (18) 3B from Dominican Republic. Hit .250 with .721 OPS in Az as 17 year old. Signed as Intl Free Agent in Aug 2016.
    Andy Sugillo (22) - OF hit .345 with .862 OPS and 20 SB in 2017. .297 and .730 OPS in 2nd half in 2018. Signed as International Free Agent in Oct 2013. Bonus $125K.

    But I'm looking for more suggestions on name to add... I'll add anyone you would vote for in the next 10 choices.

    Then, when that is done I'll do a "Others receiving votes or Mentions"

    So hit me up... who would you vote for in next 10 choices?
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    I'd vote for Jared Solomon in the next 10 picks. Will think about some others.

    I can't definitively say at this point who I'd vote for, but I can suggest a list of who else I think should be considered at this point.

    Tejay Antone
    Calten Daal
    Claudio Finol
    Miles Gordon
    Juan Martinez
    Brian O'Grady
    Alfredo Rodriguez
    Jared Solomon
    Randy Ventura
    Jonathan Willems

    Maybe make sure we have everyone from the Fangraphs list including their other prospects worth watching section.

    Also Aquino. I know he's lost some luster, but even so . . .

    I am slipping in my coverage of the minors - half those guys I haven't heard of....
    99% of all numbers only tell 33% of the story so when looking at the numbers remember that numbers is plural...

    Zabala and Thompson need to be in consideration.

    Zabala throws an easy 100 and Thompson is coming into his own as a pitcher after the switch from SS. Thompson was one of the most consistent pitchers on a Dayton team last season that had a lot of pitching talent come through.
