Minor League Baseball

Postby smith1051 » Thu May 25, 2006 9:05 pm

I have this posted in the Minor League forum but it doesn't get as much traffic as Leftovers does so I pose this question...

What player (if any) listed has the best chance to receive the honor. I realize it is very early to start guessing but I've created a spreadsheet keeping tracking of their stats and also the final stats of the last 5 winners (Young, Francis, Mauer, Baldelli and Beckett)

Billy Butler (currently in AA)
Brandon Wood (AA)
Alex Gordon (AA)
Lastings Milledge (AAA)
Kurt Suzuki (AA) - no chance IMO
Stephen Drew (AAA)
Andrew McCutchen (A)
Troy Tulowitzki (AA)
Justin Upton (A)
Ian Stewart (AA)
BJ Upton (AAA)
Joel Guzman (AAA)
Matt Kemp (AA)
Felix Pie (AAA)
Philip Hughes (AA)
Radhames Liz (A Advanced)
Mike Pelfrey (AA)
Chad Billingsley (AAA)
Jered Weaver (AAA)

If history is correct then it is a player that stays in the minors pretty much the entire year. So in that thinking - Weaver, Billingsley, Drew and Milledge could be ruled out since they could make the jump at anytime at stay.

My 1st pick would be Gordon but he could be called up at anytime since the Royals blow. Kemp would be my 2nd choice and my "sleeper" would be Liz.

Minor League POY per whom?

It all depends on who gets called up and when they do. Billingsley and Kemp could be front runners, but they could also be in LA before you know it.
Chances are KC won't call up Gordon until September (if at all) giving him as good a chance this early as anyone.

Billingsley would be up there for me as well but I think he gets the call after the AS Break but the way the Dodgers are playing they don't need him "yet"

I'd say Hunter Pence should be on that list. He'd be my candidate. Andy LaRoche is coming around too. Garza perhaps.
