    Eventually you will want Brad Boxberger on the list.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I'll add Billy Hamilton, Donnie Joseph, Mark Serrano, and Josh Fellhauer to the next poll. I meant to add them to this poll but I forgot.
    I recommend adding Rojas, Wiley and Sappelt, too

    Do we really need 70 names on the poll? We're talking about the very top prospects at this point, most of these people being named don't have the slightest prayer of being voted #2, 3, 4, whatever. As it is we've got people on the poll who won't crack the top 20.

    I sad Yorman at #1 so i have to go with him at #2. I still think he has the highest upside in the organization. A 16 year old Latin Eric Davis.

    Not to mention that there is also an "other" option.

    I agree. I like to limit the polls to no more than 12-15 names but in the other thread people were suggesting we name as many as 25 prospects on each poll. On the next poll I'm probably going to cut it down to about 15.

    Good post. My thoughts exactly.

    Doug, next year do you expect Yorman will play later on (in rookie ball again), or could he possibly be out there sooner in Dayton?

    Just my view, but I wouldn't cut it down too much. People shouldn't be steered to certain prospects because some posters want their favorites highlighted.

    And, like last year, when the result is very close, there should be a runoff.

    One proposed change -- let's say Frazier and Leake (or Francisco, Yorman, whomever) are very close for number 2, say within 5 percent. You might have a run-off between the top two. The winner becomes number 2. The loser becomes number 3 prospect automatically.

    Then you go to the poll for number 4 directly.

    Yeah but maybe those who voted for Frazier have a clear cut favorite not in the next two. I wouldn't limit the choices.

    What I'm saying is that if Frazier and Leake are very close to win - and no third guy is particularly close - OBM should be able to say that the run-off will determine both prospect 2 and prospect 3.

    No use having a separate poll for prospect 3 when the outcome is clear.

    But the outcome really isn't that clear. Francisco isn't close to 3rd, but with so many Leake votes available, a big block of those would push Francisco past Frazier.

    Dorn. He's already capable of hitting MLB RH pitchers, and the jury is still out on him facing LH. Good platoon in LF with Gomes next year, better option than Nix anyway........

    If Frazier had a definitive position, he might have an argument for #2. Since he does not, Leake's the no-brainer #2 for me.
