Twinkie Town 2010 Top 50...Voting for Prospect Number 37!

The clear winner of Prospect Number 36 is Kyle Waldrop.  With an excellent 159 votes cast, Kyle collected 43 votes (27%) to Jorge Polanco's 29 votes (18%).  After battling back from a serious injury, this has been an excellent week for Kyle who was recently invited to spring training.  Congratulations Kyle!

I had Steve Hirschfield ranked as having one of the best seasons of any pitcher in the organization this past year, yet, Steve wasn't able to gain much support from the readers of Twinkie Town and will be dropped from the next round.  Joining the vote for Prospect Number 37 will be two of the best players from last year's Beloit Snappers. 

Brad Tippett had a 9-8 record for a disappointing Snapper team, yet had the fourth best ERA in the league (3.21) with the league's best WHIP (1.07).  Tippett also had 107K/25BB in the leagues fifth most innings (146.0).  James Beresford was arguably the Snappers top player last season, a year that he began in the WBC and finished in the World Cup.  Beresford finished his season with the league's thirteenth best average, .289/.342/.313 in 450 at bats with 15 stolen bases.  Considering that Tippett is 21 and Beresford only 20, both of these young Aussies appear to have bright futures in the Twins organization. 

I will skip listing each prospect selected until we get to the 40th round.  Tomorrow's cut-off will be about 12 noon, cst.
