Vote Now for Your Cardinals Top Prospect List

Join in reader voting for top St. Louis Cardinals prospects on The Cardinal Nation message board. Annual process is now open!

Have you ever read St. Louis Cardinals top prospect lists posted across the web and thought, "I could do better than that!"? Well, now is your chance to act.

The Cardinal Nation message board community is starting its free, sixth-annual selection process of the top prospects in the Cardinals minor league system as decided by you, the fans.

Zack Cox was #2 last year
The process is easy and anyone can participate. Join the discussion on a special thread on the message board. It begins with a community vote starting with prospect number one. Simply make a post specifying your choice. After several days of voting, the player with the simple majority of votes cast will be proclaimed the winner. Voting for prospect number two will follow immediately and so on through 50.

In addition to having been the first Cardinals prospect list of its kind, the community voting will again be included in the blended tabulation of the official The Cardinal Nation Top 40 Prospect List for 2012. Its annual rollout will begin shortly after Thanksgiving. The past six years' lists can be viewed via links located in the special area at the lower left of The Cardinal Nation's home page.

The Cardinal Nation Top 40 will not only be featured on the website, but it will also appear in the 2012 FOX Sports Fantasy / Prospects Guide. This annual magazine will arrive on newsstands across the country next spring and is provided free to annual subscribers to The Cardinal Nation. Not yet a subscriber? Join now!.
