Christmas is over, and we're all finally recovered from our New Year's hangovers. We've gained 10 pounds, feel like poop, and work is requiring us to be adults once again. Maybe that's just me. You know what that means? It's also time for us to begin arguing over the prodigious Red Reporter Community Prospect Rankings. This is important, and all you really need to start taking this seriously. Very seriously.
This looks to be one of the wildest CPR's in recent memory. The Reds are flush with high ceiling prospects and the system is incredibly deep. There's also a new stock of players to vote for after the Cueto, Leake, Frazier, and Chapman trades and the Rule 5 draft. Who knows, maybe we'll even get some more players to throw into the mix as we go along. Walt and Dick would screw us all over like that. Jerks.
Without further ado, I'll begin the rankings. I haven't really decided much yet, but I think voting will end earlier than it used to. I'm thinking midnight PST so all the west coasters (WEEEEEEEEZ) have adequate time to get their votes in. This helps keep players from winning at 7:30 am when we are usually publishing these things.
Have fun and remember to always vote for the players I agree with.
