AP has shown us enough to think 58 points is within his potential despite him not hitting the mark to date.
I think you're missing my point here IB - I'm not questioning your vote. You're the biggest AP homer on the planet and even you acknowledge that it's a neck and neck race between the three.
Yet the average dobberite (judging by the voting) seems to think AP is a clear step ahead of the pack despite the fact he's the least proven of the bunch. This supports my theory that a) potential is often valued over proven around here, b) that the AP hype is a bit much.
If the votes were AP (10), Doughty (7), Buff (6), Weber (1), I wouldn't have even bothered posting. But considering AP still has 55% of the vote, it's safe to say that (at least at this point) the voting is pretty irrational given the options available.
