Community Prospect Ranking #5

This vote is closed

Here at VEB, we seem to be Matt Carpenter's main supporters. Age and lack of tools are common knocks, which means that the community seems to really buy into the hitting polish and likelihood to contribute in the near future. I must say I agree. So little Carp falls into the #4 slot with 16 votes, over Tyrell Jenkins' 8, Lance Lynn's 5, Eduardo Sanchez's 4 and Allen Craig's 1.

I'm glad to see a greater variety of players receiving votes as well as an uptick in discussion. Defending your selection underneath your vote is encouraged. Since Allen Craig got little support, I'll throw Seth Blair back in his place. Oscar Taveras will also enter the vote. Moocow will have to wait.

In housekeeping news, the method of these rankings has been under discussion recently as well as some entirely unfounded allegations that I have been involved in the sale of illegal prescription drugs. I will address the former issue here, if for no other reason than to distract from the latter. 

Included is a poll with the solutions I heard from the populace. I will defer to any decision you make.

 

Vote in the comments with a +1 under your choice

Write-in candidates will be rotated in replacing candidates who received few votes in the last round

Every vote will last two full days. If the leader wins by no greater than one vote, there will be a run-off.

#3. 3B Zack Cox
