Twinkie Town 2010 Top 50...Voting for Prospect Number 8!

On Tuesday, Danny Valencia held a tight six vote lead (52-46) over Angel Morales causing our first runoff.  About 1pm today, Morales pulled within two votes.  However he could never close the gap as Valencia won the runoff, again by six votes (63-57) out of 120 votes cast.  That tight race confirms that Danny Valencia is our Sixth ranked prospect and Angel Morales is Seventh ranked.  

We will now move forward with the voting for our eighth top prospect.  I am going to fine tune our rules a bit.  In future rounds, should we have more than three players with less than five percent of the vote, only the lowest three will be removed from the following round.

Players who will be eliminated from the next round include Alex Burnett (2), Adrian Salcedo (1) and Anthony Slama (2).  Five players will be added to the next round, including Deolis Guerra, Joe Benson, B. J. Hermsen, Max Kepler-Rozycki and the Twins recent surprise addition to their 40-man roster, Estarlin De Los Santos.    

The selections for the first seven rounds have been:  1) Miguel Jean (fka Miguel Angel Sano); 2) Aaron Hicks; 3) Wilson Ramos; 4) Kyle Gibson; 5) Ben Revere; 6) Danny Valencia; and 7) Angel Morales.  Is anyone curious that we have only one pitcher in our first seven picks, and he has yet to throw his first inning of professional ball?
