Twinkie Town 2012 Top 50...Round 39!

New, comments

Danny Rams surged towards the finish line to collect 64 of 209 votes (30%), thus, winning the Thirty-Eighth spot in this year's poll. Andrew Albers was second (34), Pat Dean third (28), Dakota Watts fourth (23) and Angel Mata fifth (16).

Tyler Grimes received only three votes and will be dropped from the next round. Added will be two young men who were ranked 35th and 36th last year, Brett Jacobson and Daniel Ortiz. Jacobson, who is the lone piece of the J. J. Hardy trade still with the Twins, was 5-6 with a 4.56 ERA in 100.2 innings for New Britain last year. Following his season, he had a 6.94 ERA in the Arizona Fall League. Ortiz began his season with a month to remember in Beloit, however, it went downhill after the 1st of May. Ortiz, who many believe could be special, hit .239/294/.391 in 468 at bats with ten home runs.

This round will remain open until noon tomorrow, Thursday. Beginning following the fortieth round, I will eliminate the four players with the fewest votes so that we can get more names who have yet been available to vote on.
