I’m going to include all the polls in one post rather than drag them out over several days. Based on the drop in participation in the recent James’ Award Polls, this seems prudent.
There are eleven separate polls. Ten we had last year – catcher, first baseman, second baseman, shortstop, third baseman, center fielder, corner outfielder, left-handed starter, right-handed starter, and closer. You can make THREE selections for each poll. The eleventh poll is for relievers and has an explanation in the poll. It’s not rocket science, but I will disregard it if it becomes too difficult to sort through the entries.
(Don’t forget to submit your top thirty prospect list by e-mailing it to email@example.com. I have only received six so far. After the top few positions, such a low number is really skewing positions eight thru thirty.)
The James’ Awards were for best pitcher and best position player in the 2018 season. Here you get to recognize other players who had good years or you can simply vote on a player’s projection. Your choice.
Each position player listed in a poll played at least 10 games at the position. Some guys may show up in multiple polls. Starters generally had at least two starts, more at the higher levels. Closers had multiple saves at the higher levels, but a low number was not necessarily a disqualifier at the rookie levels.
This last poll is for pitchers who didn’t fit into a starter’s or a closer’s role. Read the instructions in the poll and use the Other: box.
