    Ok I will put up the next poll sometime tonight or when I get up (I sleep late people). I think Polish will be the next list.

    Thanks. It does make sense at Rookie league level, or on occasion a little higher.

    Re: Raw Talent

    Notable omissions to the list

    Ryan Hannigan- Know he is a confirmed starter now, but Dickerson has as much Major league experience and Bailey has more.

    Justin Turner- confirmed .300 hitter

    Sean Henry

    Robert Manuel- Lights out relief pitcher.

    Adam Rosales

    Just what is considered raw talent?

    Re: Raw Talent

    If it is not too late.....Considering that Homer's arm is sound and that he can still throw up to 97, and that he is progressing with at least two other pitches, I would like to insert him in my list at 6 and move everyone down one. That would mean dropping MIsael DeJesus from my list. I only included him because I figured that if anyone had God given talent it would be someone name DeJesus.

    thanks for your indulgence

    The list has an "other" spot for guys like this. I have explained raw talent several times in this thread. Just peruse and you should find it. Although I should add Henry is a fairly toolsy type of kid and maybe that's a more glaring omission in my mind.

    Re: Raw Talent

    I think I will wait until later tonight or even tomorrow before I add the next poll, just to give it a bit of a gap between this and the prospect poll(s).

    Re: Raw Talent

    Its interesting that Andrew Means, Scott Carroll and Justin Reed haven't really talked about, yet Means plays football in the Big 10, Carroll played college football and Reed turned down a scholarship to an SEC school for football.... Those guys are some serious athletes.

    Yeah, Means was playing wideout in a spread offense at IU while I was up there. I never saw him play baseball but he was a decent 3rd WR in college.

    I mentioned Means and Reed as guys who should have been considered more along with Sappelt and maybe even Puckett. Fortunately this is more of a trial run and only to figure our top 15 overall prospects. If and when I undertake this again next off-season we should have a better grasp on it and be able to do more prospects. I would also probably hold the poll open longer so as to get a truer set of #'s.
