  1. I have documented future problems with polling in previous articles. I am declaring a winner as soon as it is reasonable to do so. I saw all the whining a couple of polls ago and kept the last poll open for about 20-30 additional votes that did nothing but extend the lead of the prospect who was ahead when I considered closing the poll.

    That won’t happen again. I figure I can squeeze about 13 more polls before we have to finish up with me counting votes in the comments section. Of course, close votes will be kept open longer to allow later voters to decide a race. Even if that decreases the number of polls I can get from the app.

  2. Lee Hao Yu here for me. This is where it gets really hard to pick, and he can really hit, so maybe I have him a little too high, but we don’t have enough guys who can flat out hit the ball.

    1. I too like Lee Hao Yu but i picked Morales over him because he has some electric stuff. Lee, Viar, and Rickard Perez I have all bunched together with not knowing a whole lot on other than seeing some videos and reading scouting reports/stats. All 3 hitters have a great eye and seem to be good contact hitters who will not strike out much. That usually translates well to majors. Ortiz would be a good pick but his strike outs make him very volatile as a prospect (high risk/high reward). Carlo Reyes interests me but I know very little of him so far.

  3. On upside potential after a decent season, I took Ortiz. Likelihood of him improving his plate discipline probably isn’t great but if he does…

    1. Agree….he seems to have the IT factor and the potential to be special….amazing how he decided not to do, or maybe he just wasn’t selected, to do the AAU/All-star travel team route thru HS, so he flew under the radar.

      1. I’ve already explained the polling process and the limitations of the current application and any possible replacement apps.

        What you think and what you’ll need later during the lockout mean little to me. I’ll be pressed for time as I start going to the Complex and DiMaggio Field to watch the players who have already reported. Later in the month, I’ll be going to an undisclosed site (if and when I find out where it is) to watch the major leaguers work out during the lockout. So, if I felt an additional need to rush things, I have a few.

    1. I’ve added 6 prospects to #14, he wasn’t among them because he didn’t play last season. The next new group for #17 will include A. Schultz and a couple others who missed most or all of the season. FWIW, I agree he’s an interesting and top prospect.
