Jake's Take: Note to Self, Ask Questions Better....

New, 10 comments

When I posted the poll question, it was at first intended to bust a few people's chops about their most beloved(troublemaking) prospects and show that the Rays' "Cajun God of Baseball" had a hell of a first half. So I basically asked all of the readers here, who they perceived to be the Rays top hitting prospect of the first half. However, I don't think that I explained the poll well enough because I feel that the results are unnerving. I believe that Dukes and Young being the top 2 vote-getters has little to do with their current numbers, but moreso their "potential".

Yet, I could be wrong....

Throught Last Night's Games, here's how our Top Hitting Prospects are hitting thus far into the season:

Delmon Young(OF, AAA): 139 ABs, .360/.382/.475, 2 HRs, 26 RBIs, 22 Runs scored, 20/6 K/BB ratio, 15/2 SB/CS ratio

Elijah Dukes(OF, AAA): 231 ABs, .290/.393/.498, 8 HRs, 43 RBIs, 46 Runs scored, 39/35 K/BB ratio,
4/3 SB/CS ratio

Reid Brignac(SS, High A): 322 ABs, .329/.382/.556, 16 HRs, 60 RBIs, 66 Runs scored, 58/27 K/BB ratio, 8/6 SB/CS ratio

BJ Upton(??SS, AAA): 318 ABs, .270.380/.412, 6 HRs, 36 RBIs, 55 Runs scored, 71/51 K/BB ratio, 35/14 SB/CS ratio

Elliot Johnson(2B, AA): 313 ABs, .294/.348/.502, 12 HRs, 37 RBIs, 43 Runs scored, 75/25 K/BB ratio, 15/12 SB/CS ratio

Evan Longoria(3B, SS/High A): 57 ABs, .358/.422/.752, 6 HRs, 17 RBIs, 10 Runs scored, 9/8 K/BB ratio, 2/0 SB/CS ratio

Here's one of the most interesting cases of a Rays "breakout" prospect of this year...

Prospect X: 283 ABs, .325/.401/.502, 6 HRs, 62 RBIs, 52 Runs Scored, 51/34 K/BB ratio, 8/3 SB/CS ratio

Can you solve for X?
