It’s that time of year where we ask that you cast your vote for the shortstop in the Red Sox minor league system that you believe will have the best 2014 season. Keep in mind that you are voting with respect to who you predict will be perform the best on the field, not who you consider to be the best prospect. As per usual, each player is only eligible for one position and thus will not appear on multiple polls.
Note that this poll will close on March 17. We look forward to seeing your votes!

FWIW, I don't read the rules to necessarily require that the "best season" occur in the minors. I think the word "minor leaguer" is used there more in place of "not already an established big leaguer."
That said, I'm not saying your reading is definitely wrong.
"We really don't need the whole commercial break/warm-up routine every time a new reliever comes into the game. It certainly made sense in 1884 when they only switched pitchers when the starter was attacked by pickaxe or caught consumption, and no reliever was warming up because he was busy gambling and drinking." - JD
