It's time for the 3rd Annual Community Prospect Rankings!

It's time, once again, for the great and inquiring minds here at RR to choose our top prospects for 2011.  If you haven't been a part of this before, here's how it works.  Each day you can vote on who you think are the top prospects in the Reds system.  Each vote will last one day.  Today you'll vote on the #1 prospect, tomorrow we will announce the winner, and you'll get a chance to vote on #2.  

We here at the RR Minor League Bureau will give you a pool of players to choose from, and once we feel the pool is small enough, we'll add a new bunch of players for consideration.  After the Travis Wood Debacle of 2010, we understand you may have a favorite player that we aren't including (yet), so feel free to speak up in the comments and let us know.  

After the jump you'll find, just for fun, the final list y'all came up with last year, as well as stats and rankings for each candidate for #1 in 2011.  We've included John Sickels' ranking for each player (found here), and once Baseball America releases their Reds' rankings on Wednesday, we'll include those as well.  

So let us hear from you.  Who is the Reds best prospect?
