For what it's worth, Jeremy Reed ranked number 4, Joe Borchard number 43 and Kris Honel number 44 in the new Rotoworld prospect rankings. Borchard has dropped 34 spots in 2.5 years; Honel has been on a steady rise; and Reed shot up at light speed.

Twins catcher Joe Maurer ranked number 1, pitcher Chin-Hui Tsao of the Rockies ranked number 2 and pitcher Zack Greinke of the Royals ranked number 3.

Here's the full list (http://www.rotoworld.com/display2.asp?sport=MLB&page=column&column=14)

Rauch is on the list, too. I read this earlier while checking up on info for the keeper league draft. The comment on Greinke makes me scared, :(: I should try to go to bed again.

Also: Cotts is #59, Rauch #80 and Ryan Wing is at #113.

Notable quote:
regarding Joe Borchard
A Jeromy Burnitz-type career remains a possibility.

Ouch.

It actually goes to 150. The first 100 they give a brief little bio on, and once they get to 100, they just give a list of the next 50. Why it's called a top 100 list I don't know...

They have Honel's ETA at 2005? They don't know the White Sox very well.

Other notables:
Royce Ring is #106. I didn't see Webster, but I may have missed him.

this shows that we got a pretty damn good farm system. sox only one of 8 teams to have 5 or more guys in top 100.

But the dropoff after those five is significant. We have some top minor league talent, but our depth is seriously depleted. Hopefully Kenny can address this with all the supplemental picks we'll receive this year.

4 picks does not a farm system make.

Seems I debunked the myth that we have boatloads fo EXTRA picks.

Sorry, maybe you're trying to be funny, but we have 50 picks other than the addition 4...
