  1. IT HAPPENED!!!!! the long arduous journey has finally come to a close. very well deserved by mitch, once his power fully develops he’s a top 100

      1. I spent 7 years in the senior section of Beaver Stadium in the early 80s. I was sensitive to the name he used. I was not thrilled with with it, but I couldn’t rule out that it was his actual name. There have been other more obviously offensive names that I have deleted. And his posts on baseball were clean if not accepted as sound by everyone here.

    1. I think your name and your opinions are pretty horrible , unless that is actually your name and then that is just unfortunate , and its only your opinions I find out of tune

      1. On a previous thread Sandusky gave a pretty spirited defense of Jerry Sandusky, saying he built the greatest college football defense ever. Do they have access to the internet in state prison?

        1. Child molestation doesn’t get forgiven because you can manage a defense. If that is him I hope they serious jacking him up and if it isn’t him and just some dude who thinks he’s being funny, well then I hope he gets kicked in package randomly ever day for the rest of his days

  2. A few people have posted that they don’t know anything about the guys left on the list. Matt has profiles of a few of these names here:

    I like Cumana – he can play short and he has contact skills. That said I also think Nunez is a good pick here. I understand also if people like Arauz or Brito. Leiter doesn’t make a ton of sense to me, but hey at least he can strike younger kids out.

    1. I think it’s largely sentimental, I have many fond memories of the Mark Leiter who went 10-17 with a 5.67 ERA for the last place 1997 Phillies. Like that time he got a ground ball double play to get out of the 4th inning having only allowed 2 runs. Glory days.

    2. I like Cumana too. I wanted to vote for him at some point (he’s 41 on my list) but haven’t gotten the chance. I went with Nunez again this time. Viza and Anderson were in the running also.

    3. It is encouraging to see us at Prospect #50 and still have Phillies prospects left with potential being left off the list.

    4. I haven’t voted since a few tests during the first 3 rounds where I wouldn’t affect the outcome. However, some of the remaining guys made the ballot because I saw them and liked them. I never thought much about it, but I think I prefer the younger guys even they don’t project into the top 30 yet. Guys like Arauz, Brito, Chavez, Forsythe, Keys, Cumana, Viza, Medina, Posso, Saurez, Tavares, Ramos.

  3. Thanks for organizing this poll. Its been a blast. I know it takes a lot of work, and I appreciate it. Thank you.

    And, by going to 50, we have a definitive list to asses this season.

    1. I would have given this comment a thumbs-up based on it’s Grade 70 typo alone, but I also agree with the sentiment. Thanks Jim!
