Rank Prospects In the Best Farm System Ever

H. Darr Beiser-USA TODAY - Presswire

2012 RR Ranking of BFSE

Two things we love at Royals Review are prospects and polls. Time to combine the two classics. The following are 22 prospects. Look over them. Then at the end of the article is a poll for the top 10. I will compile the data after a few days of voting and publish the results. Happy Heated Discussions!
