Let me get me this out there and put a more clear deadline. Like we did for the Nats bats, I’m soliciting votes for the NationalsProspects.com Top 10 Pitchers.
The plan is to do the post on Wed., so send your Top 10 list to enfieldmass-top10arms[at]yahoo[dot]com (link will open your preferred email client) before 3 p.m. tomorrow (Tuesday, Dec. 4).
Same methodology… I’ll compile them, weight them in reverse order (#1 = 10 points, #2 = 9 points… #9 = 2 points, #10 = 1 point) and we’ll have fodder for discussion.
The only restriction: You can’t vote for anyone who is not a prospect (defined as having a rookie status, which is less than 130AB, 50IP, or 45 days of service during the 25-man roster limit period). Ordinarily, this isn’t necessary to point out, but with Ryan Perry getting so much press, it needs to be.
This, in conjunction with the better timing, ought to produce more participation, though we’ve long seen that pitchers produce the most passion, emotion, and discussion — here and elsewhere.
Still taking votes… Also, to preserve what little statistical relevance this exercise has, I have to discard lists of less than ten. Thanks!.
