A few days ago, cainyoudigit suggested that we do a community list for Pirate prospects. His fanpost didn't get a lot of response, but I like the idea, so if no one has any objections, I'll just start it up. We'll run it the way they do the overall list at minorleagueball - anyone can vote, +1 method, new poll every day. We'll keep going until it runs out of steam, I guess, since it's a good excuse for discussion. If anyone has any objections or suggestions, let's talk it out in the comments.
If there aren't any objections/suggestions, I'll post the first poll tomorrow evening some time. Until then, let's use this thread to discuss the system as a whole. To get things started, here is BA's top ten (by Perrotto); here is Goldstein's; here are top 15s from Bullpen Banter; here is the top 30 Charlie did in August; here is the latest list for the community poll at OnlyBucs; here is MCTruth's top 20. Sickels and Law haven't released lists yet, though Sickels's should be coming in the next week or so over at minorleagueball. If I'm missing any, post in the comments.
Anything stand out to you about those lists? Anyone being underrated? Overrated? In anticipation of the first poll, should we take Cole or Taillon?
