Retraction - BA Player of the Year Versus BA Prospect of The Year

I recently did a fan post displaying what I thought was the Baseball America prospect of the year but was in reality the Baseball America Player of the year. To remove confusion over these two different awards, I've included both in the table below. My apologies to Baseball America for the mistake and my thanks to John Manuel of Baseball America and new user thoughtxriot for pointing out the error. It was meant to just be a quick throw a way post but I've got to do a better job of making sure they are accurate. The top prospect list was created using this link from Baseball America which is not behind the pay wall. The Player of the Year was created from baseball - reference minor league page.
