    Copy-and-paste fail. This is definitely for prospect #31, not #28.

    Wouldn't it make sense to wait for the #31 poll to actually close before starting a runoff? You may not even need this.

    Went Valiquette, he's on the 40 man roster, a lefty who sits in mid 90's and cranked it up to 100 are hard to come by. He will turn 24 next month which is still young. In 2010 he was selected on the Futures Game and the Rising Stars game in Arizona. Did not get many chances last season to put up lots of saves but managed to to save them all but one BS. If he stays healty I think he has a bright future. His walk rate has to come down but his groud-out rate was quite good last year.

    Imo the poll should not even be open for 5 days at this point. It should be 3 days.

    Have to agree, give me Phillipes ceiling as the tie breaker.

    Went with Valiquette. Nice velocity, nice upside. When I stop and think about it, I'm wondering why I haven't voted for him yet. Besides, I'm finishing reading a bio of Lafayette, so this just seems right.

    Frankly, I have a hard time voting for either of these guys. I'll go with Valiquette because I haven't seen him.

    Felix Perez. May be able to start one day. That upside is worth more than a reliever. Valiquette belongs in this range though, just not ahead of Perez.
