    2019/2020 Prospect Poll, #1

    Here's the "first wave" to vote on. As the list shrinks, I will add more. If you think a youngster is worthy of consideration for the top 10 picks let me know (in any poll).

    poll is coming.

    Lodolo is the choice for me. If Greene was healthy it would have been a discussion but ...

    You could throw a dart at any of five names, IMO: India, T. Stephenson, Greene, Lodolo, and Garcia.

    I'll go Tyler Stephenson.

    He plays a position that's always in need. He has pop he hasn't gotten to, but has been very productive in tough hitting environments. He was outstanding against top-notch competition in the AFL. He's still relatively young. He has defensive upside. And his swing is conducive to success even if he doesn't find that extra HR oomph.

    Lodolo is a pitcher who's had remarkably few innings as a professional.
    Greene was injured, and we don't know how he'll respond physically.
    India struggled to hit as a top level.
    Garcia is still at least a year away from dominance.

    That said, I suspect all five of these guys will end up being above average major leaguers. How far above average will determine the success of the team moving forward.

    Thanks for catching that.. I had intended to have Lodolo on the orginal list.. He will be in there for #2.
    If someone wants to "write in" Lodolo, I can count those posts.

    So far, he has one vote from klw.

    I'm going with TySteve just because he's performed well at AA and plays a premium position. But I can see the argument for Lodolo or Greene. I think India is a half step behind the others.
    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    Seriously.... Lodolo was my #1

    You can edit the poll to add him.

    I'm not as high on Greene as many, but I'm left cold by the others. Greene gets it on upside, but the injury devalues him. Not real high on anyone actually.

    hi Jax, I couldn't figure out how to do it.. if you can do it with your admin powers, I'd appreciate it and add the votes to his total. (+3 as of now)

    Lodolo needs to be on there. He's my vote, and it's not particularly close.

    I'm no longer an Admin which is one of reasons I'm not doing the poll

    Every poll needs to have an other option, just in case you forget to place a name on there that should be on there.

    There has only been 15 votes so far. Lets just close this thread and start over.

    Thanks for doing this Redread. I did it a couple times and it can be a lot of work.
