Twinkie Town 2011 Top 50...Prospect #30!

New, 19 comments

With 42% (81) of the 193 votes cast in our three player run-off, Brian Dozier captured the Twenty-Ninth spot in this year's poll. Nikko Goodrum was second with 65 votes while Tom Stuifbergen was third. I expect an invite to spring training was the difference to a lot of you when deciding between these three.

Matt Bashore was eliminated in the last round so we will be adding two players. Both were in this year's voting previously, Danny Rams and Bobby Lanigan. We now have selected a player at every position except catcher. Will Rams become the first catcher to make it into this year's ranking?

Rams is a former second round pick who was Beloit's leader in several hitting categories last season, including home runs (16), runs batted in (68), and doubles (28). He did that in only 401 at bats while hitting .243/.310/.450. Lanigan began his season with the Ft. Myers Miracle where he was 3-1 with a 2.15 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in ten starts (54.1 innings) with 41 strikeouts and 7 walks. Lanigan missed some time with an injury and later moved up to New Britain. While with the Rock Cats, he made eight starts with a 2-3 record and 5.23 ERA in 41.1 innings with 17 strikeouts and 12 walks.

Please continue to leave comments about who you are voting for and why. Also, let me know who you think I have missed and should be added in the coming rounds.

I will be travelling tomorrow so this round will remain open through Noon, Sunday. Future rounds will close at noon each day rather than 3pm as has been the case.
