Twinkie Town 2012 Top 50...Round 45!

New, comments

The Forty-Fourth spot in this year's ranking goes to New Britain outfielder Evan Bigley. Bigley collected 67 of 208 votes (32%), with Angel Mata second (27), Danny Lehmann third (25), James Beresford fourth (23) and Jairo Perez fifth (22).

Four players were very close with eight to twelve votes. All four will be included in the next round. Dropped will be Markus Solbach who received only four votes. Added will be the only two players from last year's Top 50 who have not yet been included, Daniel Osterbrock and Tony Davis. Osterbrock was pitching well in April at Ft. Myers where he was 2-0 with a 2.95 ERA in four games. In May he moved up to New Britain where he allowed thirteen earned runs in 6.1 innings in two starts before going on the disabled list for the rest of the year. Davis was very good working out of New Britain's bullpen. He appeared in seventeen games (28.0 innings0 with a 2.57 ERA, 24 strikeouts and 12 walks.

As we move into the final week, this round will remain open until noon on Thursday. Let me know if there is someone who I have missed who really deserves a chance to be voted on.
