LSB Community Prospect Project: Mid-Season #1

That's right ladies and bitches: It. Is. On.

It's finally time for everybody's favorite meaningless in-season community exercise: The Lonestarball Community Prospect Project. 

These are always interesting, and the discussion the votes generate is often more fun than the voting.

For those of y'all who are new to the LSB CPP party, it's pretty simple: Over the next month or so I (TheDirkatron) will be running a series of daily polls asking you to vote for the prospect listed on the poll you think is the "best", with the winner coming off the poll and being added to the master list. It's a fun way of taking the community's pulse when it comes to who's who among our young talent.

Again: This vote is to determine how the LSB community would rank the players currently in the system. I've listed any guy I thought could possibly be considered a threat to be our top prospect.

Also note that we WILL be including recently drafted players, even if they have not yet been signed. Every year we do this and every year we have to engage in pointless debate about why these guys deserve to be on the list. Bottom line: For right now the Rangers own their rights, and until they fail to sign them (thereby relinquishing those rights) we're going to count them as Rangers' property. If they don't sign, then it's an easy move just to cut them off the list. So please let's not have any douchebaggery regarding this issue this time, yah?

Since things can change quickly in-season and we want this to be as close to a "snapshot" as possible, I want to get through these as fast as possible. I'll try to leave each one up at least 24 hours and then get right into the next one, with no run-offs. If a vote is close, then a vote is close.

So please check in daily if you don't want to miss a vote. (I can't stress this enough... these are gonna go by quick, so if you wanna be part of the voting funnagerocity, make sure to check in every single day.)

For a frame of reference, here is the top 30 list we came up with during the Winter:
