Pedroza takes number twelve holding off the new draftees. Also with the AFL and HWL seasons over, here are the final results. Russel Mitchell didn't get many at bats as we was on the taxi squad so he was not eligible every game but he did the most with what he got. Looks like Hoffman and Schlichting may have helped make their case for getting added to the 40 man roster. For one of the youngest players in the league, Mr. Lambo did just fine.

Baseball- Intellect put out their 6-15 list. Up until number 11 we are almost in total agreement, and then it all goes to hell in a handbasket. No one had deemed Russel, St Claire, or Adkins worthy yet so I haven't put them out for a vote. I know Russel was drafted higher then Delmonico and Gordon but based on their age and position and how they produced in the same rookie leagues I'm reluctant to put Russel a head of either of them. I'm only going to 15 with the vote so 13 / 14 will be determined by this vote. Number 15 will be a write in vote as there are too many players to put in a poll.

Tony Delmonico was our 2008 6th round pick and took his team to the College World Series finals. For us he hit .340 with 20 doubles and 11 home runs in 35 games. Six of those home runs came in the final 10 games of the season. The word is that he is going to transition to catcher as he's a terrible infielder.
Devaris Strange-Gordon just like Delmonico played for Ogden. The 2008 3rd round pick didn't hit like Delmonico but he's a year younger and everyone was raving about his defense at SS. He may now be the fastest player in the organization stealing 18 bases in only 60 games with a 78% success rate.
