The Purple Row Prospects Listing (PuRPs List) is the biannual community ranking of the best prospects in the Colorado Rockies Minor League System.

RulesEdit

Twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, a "PuRPs Polling Thread" is brought to the main page and left up for a week or so. All registered users, even those who don't regularly participate in Game Threads, Pebble Reports or Rockpiles, are welcome to list who they believe are the 30 best prospects in the Colorado Rockies system, with explanations if they so choose. The first PuRPs poll was conducted in August 2005 and there have been 24 as of August 2016.

Voted are tabulated on a 30 (for a 1st place vote)-29-28...3-2-1 scale. Ballots with less than 30 names are not counted, and prospects are given a sliding weight until they have appeared on one-third of all ballots, in order to minimize the effect of vanity votes or joke ballots.

As of Summer 2016, there have been 11 different prospects to have been declared #1 overall PuRP. Six have done so multiple times, with Jon Gray having been voted the number 1 PuRP a record six times.
