    There just needs to be a simple vote and not pre-lim anything. This is not going to garner much involvement as even I am confused.

    Just put 5 players up for vote and ask for additions in the next round in the comments. And tell people that the biggest number of addition suggestions will win out to be in the next five. This three-grouping doesn't work and it isn't clear what is actually occurring right now. This isn't a big deal for a fairly consensus top 8-10, but it will after that.

    We did this method at BYTO for years. It worked well, I'm not sure why this is so complicated for you to understand, everyone else seems to grasp it easily enough and haven't complained yet. Feel free to run your own superior voting process though, champ! Or perhaps you could learn to adapt perhaps? Up to you!

    I actually like this format a lot, and do not find it difficult to keep track of the order.

    I think after this group, you're getting in to BJ Hermsen, Chris Herrmann, Randy Rosario territory.
    I opine about the Twins and Kernels regularly at Knuckleballsblog.com while my alter ego, SD Buhr covers the Kernels for MetroSportsReport.com.

    How many votes are you getting as compared to how many they get at Twinkie Town? As compared to the total active population of Twins Daily?

    This really isn't that confusing.

    Niko Goodrum should be on the next list. And then there is the issue of all the RP'ers that could sneak into the top 20. I still don't know where to put them.

    I don't know, and I don't really care. You are welcome to spend the time to create your own stupid polling method, but as people have continued to mention:

    1. They like the method.
    2. They don't find it confusing.

    I went May here. He obviously takes a hit from his performance from last year but it was at AA. He had a solid K rate and though his BB rate was way it wasn't crippling. If he tightens up his control a little he could still be a mid-rotation starter and he is relatively close to the bigs.

    I like Berrios a lot but it was at a low level I have read concerns about his ultimate ceiling. Rosario obviously has the question of whether he can stay at 2B. I would think this year answers that question.
    Papers...business papers.
