Greetings, Nationals fans. The 2011 draft pick signing deadline is about to come and go, and once it does, I think it would be interesting to get a community list of the Nats' top prospects done.
I'd like to follow a similar format to the Japers' Rink's Ranking the Capitals posts from past summers; basically, each day I'll put up a new poll, asking readers to choose who they think the best prospect listed is. In the comment section, we can duke out our opinions on whether Steve Lombardozzi's grit and performance makes him a better prospect than Eury Perez's speed and raw skills do.
As each post comes and goes, I will also ask readers to leave one name for who they think should be the next candidate on the list. For now, let's come up with a preliminary list of 10 names to start with. I just went with the top 10 on my list from last week, but a lot of those names depend on who signs and who does not. Please leave the names of the players you feel should be included in the top 11 (since Bryce Harper will undoubtedly be number one).
Here's what the polls will look like:
Once the ink dries on the Nats' signings, we'll get the ball rolling with our #2 poll. Until then, please vote on the poll (to test it out, mainly) and leave some names for the next list. Thanks!
