Community Prospect Ranking #14

With seven votes, Bryan Anderson gets the lucky #13, let's hope it brings him a real shot on the big club in 2011. He may be suffering from prospect fatigue but not bad enough to keep VEB from coming to its first consensus pick in awhile. He doesn't have any outstanding tools but he doesn't have any glaring weaknesses either (to my eye, his defense is only a limitation in an organization where virtuosos like Yadier Molina and Mike Matheny have become the standard).

Elsewhere on the ballot, there is heavy turnover. No one wanted to bite on Cody Stanley, who is like Anderson but younger and Adron Chambers' limited upside received mixed reviews. Stanley is probably going away for awhile, unless someone asks, and replaced by Adam Reifer who received multiple write-in votes and whose punnable name is ideal for our bullpen. Chambers gets cycled out for toolsier outfielder Tommy Pham, who had something like a (admittedly BABIP fueled) breakout year in Springfield. Another toolsy outfielder, Nick Longmire, returns to the ballot and Descalso and Cruz both retain their slots.

Another thing, my plan for the final list was to include quotes mined from the comments here underneath every prospect. Sound like a good idea, everyone? Hopefully, we end up with something pretty for posterity's sake and all these fanposts will have been worth something. So keep voting and keep commenting!
