  1. Not sure how you can vote for Gueller. He stinks. Period. I’d vote for a completely unheard of latin american player because at least they might turn into something. But like Walding and Lino should at the least be ahead of Gueller

    1. Gueller had some bright moments last year. He’s not done. I wouldn’t vote for him here, but it’s not ridiculous.

      1. He might not be done but he’s gotta be close at this point. Iirc, he had a nice start to the year ERA-wise, but his peripherals weren’t so great. He finished his 3rd year in the org and 2nd year in W-port with 31 Ks to 29 BBs and hasn’t really shown the raw stuff that got him drafted. One more chance, maybe.

        1. Agreed he’s close. I think at some point there were items in Mitch’s reporting about his home/away splits, which makes me wonder both about his comfort level on the road – something that could be fixed with just a mental flip of the switch in his head. Maybe. I’m not in front of the stats right now.

    2. What’s weird is that Gueller is getting 20-something votes and I don’t think I’ve heard much of a case made for him. It’s like there is a Silent Gueller Majority out there, or I guess in this case a small but silent Gueller plurality.

      1. The silent majority that only remembers he was a high draft pick and doesn’t look at production at all. ostriches

    1. Hahahaha. We have the baby 5’s, the baby 4’s in Severino, Imhof, Arano, and Windle, and the baby 3’s in Nola, Biddle, Eflin, Lively. Mecias and Kilome TBD for the baby 2’s.

  2. Nuñez here. Almost wish they would start Nola or Biddle at AAA just to see them push Nuñez to AA. Who knows, maybe Colin Kleven is ahead of him on the depth chart still. Hard to guess that one. Both deserve a promotion based on 2014 results, but we don’t know if the club thinks they’re ready for the jump.

    1. Kleven was in the FSL top 5 all season for lowest BB/9, until the last weekend, I think. I saw him today. He looked leaner than I remember. He had just completed biking to the Complex for his afternoon workout.

  3. Maybe we should have stopped voting at 44. Malquin Canelo & David Whitehead are prospects in the loosest sense of the word; not to mention for whom we’re voting now.

    It really does seem, to me anyway, 44 was the natural cut-off.

    I’m voting Lino, but that’s as much because of name recognition as anything else.

    Still super impressed 140+ people are voting!

    1. Canelo is a plus glove at SS who’s shown enough signs with the bat to be interesting. He’s as much of a prospect as Brandon Leibrandt is. So is Miguel Nunez, for that matter.

    2. Fitz, kind interesting that you think Leibrandt is a prospect and not Whitehead?

      I did not physically see them play last year, but Leibrandt, Whithead, and Leiter all seem to have similar stat years?
