RR Community Prospect Rankings: Aroldis Chapman needs to get a bigger trophy room

For the second year in a row, Aroldis Chapman is RR's choice for the #1 prospect in the Reds' system.  Personally, I don't see how it could have been anyone else, unless one of the other candidates on the list has a triple-digit fastball that they've hidden until now.  I'm sure he's honored that he's the first multiple winner of our esteemed honor, and keep in mind that the RR CPR award is the first major award that Aroldis Chapman has won twice.  I'm sure that'll be a trivia answer at Redsfest 2055.

I'm thinking the vote for the second prospect will be a lot closer.  Your list is the same as yesterday's, get at it!
