Seems to be enough interest to go ahead with this. We now have a list of 40 candidates. I will attempt to set this up the same as epoc did for the community prospect list, since that seemed to work well and regulars will be familiar with the process.
We'll start with the 10 candidates who seemed to attract the most interest, listed in alphabetical order. They are Tim Alderson, Derel Bell, Chris Duffy, Chad Hermansen, Adam Hyzdu, Akinori Iwamura, Andy LaRoche, Dave Littlefield, Oliver Perez, and Ian Snell. Please reply with a +1 after the candidate you see as the #1 Pirate disappointment since Y2K. If you want to vote for someone else, please place that name under "Others" and add a +1 reply.
I will also list a place for "Discussion."
Since there's no rush, I plan to leave this poll open for at least a couple days, and we'll see how it goes.
