Brew Crew Ball Community Top Prospects Vote: #2

New, comments

No surprise at the top as Orlando Arcia is your #1 choice. Now things get interesting.

Happy Tuesday, ladies, gentlemen and highly trained dolphins. Today we carry on with the voting for the Brew Crew Ball community's top prospects list. Yesterday we kicked off our voting and while a couple of you decided to get cute with it, it wasn't nearly enough to unseat Orlando Arcia, who walked away with a staggering 88% of the vote. No surprise there, as Arcia is the consensus top prospect in the organization among all the major publications and a top 15 prospect in all of baseball.

We have all the same guys from yesterday's poll returning today, with the exception of Arcia of course. As the list carries on and opinions begin to diverge, we'll add more choices. If there is someone that isn't in the poll that you feel you would have voted for at any point (other than Guerra, Kyle), please let me know in the comments.

Again, if you need a little guidance, here are the organizational lists that have been released up to this point. Our list will of course supersede all of them as the definitive Brewers prospects ranking once complete:

Minor League Ball
Baseball America
Baseball Prospectus: 1-1011-20

Voting will be live until the following day (or Monday, for polls posted on Friday) at noon for each poll in this countdown.

Note: The organizational top 30 from MLB Pipeline has not yet been updated for 2016. The organizational rankings below are implied by each players' ranking on the overall list, which was released Friday.
