2011 Reader Top 30, #21

The voting in the run-off for spot 19 was obviously being manipulated to keep it as even as possible, there’s no way that after 500 votes, they should be within 3 or 4 total. At the time of this writing, Austin Hyatt had the lead, so he gets it. At this point, we’re splitting hairs anyway. I actually figured out how to see the answers given for the write-in votes. Scott Mathieson and Derrick Mitchell (I still don’t get this) had the most during the regular voting for 19. So I’ll add them. I personally didn’t even consider Mathieson for my personal top 30. He’s under the 50 inning mark, but I think he may be over the service time limit MLB uses to determine rookie eligibility. I guess if you really like him that much and believe he belongs in the 30, you can vote for him. Or Derrick Mitchell. Or whoever. Its your show!

2011 Reader Top 30, #19

Jon Pettibone easily took care of the voting for #18, so now we move forward. Before we do, just a note, I’ve now set up the comments of posts to where you can reply to someone’s comment directly. Its limited to 4 levels. It should hopefully make discussing something or a particular comment a bit easier. And now we go forward.

Matt Rizzotti takes the 17th spot on the list, edging out Jon Pettibone. A few guys got a write in vote, so we’ll go with Josh Zeid.

2011 Reader Top 30, #17

JC Ramirez pulled ahead of Matt Rizzotti to take the 16th spot, and we now move on to #17. Leandro Castro picked up quite a bit of write-in support, so we’ll add him.

The runoff vote for #14 and 15 was as close as the actual vote, but at some point the madness must end, and so Aaron Altherr takes spot #14, and Phillippe Aumont takes spot #15. That means we move on to #16. Freddy Galvis got multiple mentions, so I’ll add him, and also Miguel Alvarez.

2011 Reader Top 30, #14

Domingo Santana dominated the competition (like he’ll hopefully dominate Lakewood in 2011) and took home the 13th spot. That means we move on to #14, which should be fairly wide open. JC Ramirez received the most write-in support, so he replaces Santana in the polling. Onward

Julio Rodriguez eases ahead and takes the #12 spot, edging out Domingo Santana. Rizzotti got the most write-in support, so he’ll be added this time around.

2011 Reader Top 30, #12

Jiwan James emerged victorious in the voting for #11, so we move on to #12. Cesar Hernandez received the most write-in support, outside of the bizarre Derek Mitchell nominations. Maybe someone can explain that one to me. Anyway, moving along…
