Brew Crew Ball Community Prospect Rankings: Vote For #1

New, 8 comments

It's time, ladies and gentlemen, to launch the third edition of the Brew Crew Ball Community Prospect Rankings. A lot has changed since the last time we did this: Two members of last year's top 17 are no longer in the organization, and at least a couple members of last year's top five probably won't even make the list this year.

Here's the basic plan for the proceedings: Today I'll present five candidates for the #1 spot, and open a poll for you to choose our winner. Tomorrow at this time we'll close the voting, announce the winner for #1 and open voting for #2. This process will continue each weekday until we've named our top 17.

Here are the five nominees for the #1 spot:

Jed Bradley
Scooter Gennett
Taylor Jungmann
Wily Peralta
Tyler Thornburg

Follow the jump for more on these five players, then vote in the poll below.
