How did you rank the best of the Yankees’ system?

MLB: All Star Game-All Star Futures Game Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Three days ago, I put out a call for visitors to Pinstripe Alley to rank prospects using a one-to-one comparison system. There was an incredible response, as we received over 178,000 votes! Y’all clearly have feelings on the Yankees’ elite system, and you let us hear about it.

Tanya, Jason, and I did our own rankings with comments yesterday, but below are the results from the community poll. I expanded it to a Top 30 to offer a little more perspective. The number in parentheses is the score given by All Our Ideas based on the percentage of comparisons won.

Our rankings were actually quite close. There was some shuffling around in the middle of the top 10 and beyond, but most of the names were similar. What do you think about the final results of the rankings? Did you feel that the comparison system helped evaluate how you feel about the prospects? Would you be open to similar polls using this tool in the future?
