Last day to vote: 2012 Prospect Watch


Just a heads up, today is the last day to vote for our 2012 Prospect Watch. We’ve gotten over 2,700 responses so far and Mason Williams is starting to distance himself from Manny Banuelos, though fewer than 100 votes separate the two. Make sure you get your vote in before I close the poll this evening.

    Someone is stuffing the ballot. I went onto hidemyass.com out of curiosity and someone voted for Banuelos from a proxy ip address. You may say I’m excessively suspicious, but those suspicions proved to be founded.

    Bichette! We already covered Manny. If it’s Manny, and he gets called up, you’ll have to stop the Prospect Watch. Will we get our money back then?

    Why wasn’t Betances an option?

  4. STONE COLD Austin Romine says:

    Why not a hard luck prospect like Slade Heathcliff ?

  5. Jesse says:

    Voted for Campos, just because he’s the new guy and we’ve heard some good reviews from scouts, but I wouldn’t be disappointed in the slightest if someone else, like Mason Williams, wins it.

    Anyone who feels passionately about this will be reading DotF anyway. That said, I’d prefer either Mason or Dante as young, exciting hitters that you can still dream on.

    Suggestion though: I’m not sure if this is possible, but maybe doing a 10-game accumulation in the sidebar would be more helpful than one-game samples for hitters. Or displaying both might be helpful, as well as overall stats for the year.

    When you say, Pineda had “tendinitis” but his rotator cuff is “fine” you are presenting a very confusing picture. In fact, Pineda likely has tendinitis of the tendons comprising his rotator cuff (or short heads of his biceps tendon). This is what led Pedro Martinez to go from tendinitis to interstitially tearing of the RTC. In any case, his rotator cuff could very well not be “fine”.

      Indeed. Quoting of “medical” terminology/reports and throwing them around loosely runs amok here.

      Still, this is not the thread for this conversation.

        “Quoting of “medical” terminology/reports and throwing them around loosely runs amok” everywhere.

        • V says:

          As for the rotator cuff:

          “Rotator cuff tendinitis refers to irritation of these tendons and inflammation of the bursa (a normally smooth layer) lining these tendons.

          A rotator cuff tear occurs when one of the tendons is torn from overuse or injury.”

          Tendinitis = shut down, or there’s a risk of a tear. Tear = bad. Tendinitis = recoverable.
