As our yearly Forty Days, Forty Nights, Forty Prospects series draws to a close, this article brings together the voting of all four participants from The Birdhouse: Jason Scott, Leonda Markee, Ray Mileur and myself, Brian Walton. The far left column of the table below is the aggregate ranking. To the right of the players’ names are our individual votes.
In addition, you will see a column labeled “Comm”. That is the results of a collaborative effort among a group of very knowledgeable Cardinals fans from our Message Board. While that group ranked 50 players, not 40, I limited this article to 40 for consistency. Click on the link to see the entire community list.
Finally, on the far right are the 2006 rankings of the 2007 Top 40. Seventeen players make their first appearance on the list in 2007, mostly as new draftees into the organization.
Not surprisingly, the split is in favor of pitching, with position players holding down just 17 of our 40 spots. Six our top eight are pitchers.
