So, I got this idea from other places around here, specifically Minor League Ball and I think Athletics Nation, and I thought it would be something fun to do that would break up the monotony of the rosterbation posts. Basically, the idea is that we go through and vote on our top prospects from #1 to #whatever-we-feel-like to create an McC Community Prospect List. I don't think anyone did this last year. If someone did, I apologize if I'm stepping on any toes.
Not only will it be fun, but I think it will be a good way for all of us to learn more about the prospects in our system and spark some debate. My goal is to have a little blurb on each player in the poll which would include their stats at various levels/ages along with hopefully some basic scouting and background info on them. That second part may be a little tricky to come by, as some of that info isn't easily found. Hopefully people here will be able to help fill in the gaps. The first few guys should be relatively easy to find info on, but as we get down into the teens it will certainly get a bit more interesting.
So, this post is created for three purposes:
- To gauge interest.
- To see if there are any suggestions on how to do this better.
- To try to get the candidates for the first poll sorted out.
#1 will be handled in poll form. #2 will be handled in the comments. Please give me any suggestions/comments/ideas. As for #3, I figure the initial list should include MadBum, Hardly Know 'Er, T2, and AnVil. Please let me know if any others should be added.
Oh...uh...trade Matt Cain for John McCain. He's a good buy-low candidate and could provide some veteran leadership.
