Boy Long sure had a rough debut. Hope he can rebound. I like Cunningham, not really sold yet on Carter, might be with a solid 2007 though. McCulloch may be a bit overrated but should still be pretty solid. I know he was at Texas.

Jeez... I guess Owens dropped a bit, I know he had a rough year but wow.

WOW! A guy (Carter) that struggled tremendously in Low A at #6. They might as well have put Francisco Hernandez there.

Long...with that ERA?

Pedro Lopez is, at best, another Esteban Beltre or that kid Guillen liked from the Marlins that we cut before the 2005 season, taking Ozuna instead.

There's no way you can rank Jerry Owens behind Lopez.

Heck, it's almost like putting Malone, Brian West or Andy Gonzalez on the list. Might as well add Ruffcorn, Eddie Pearson, Adam Peterson and Joel Skinner. That list just looks sad to me...we've definitely fallen to the bottom 10 in the majors.

On the bright side, if you added Gio, Haigwood, Fabio Castro, Josh Rupe, Anthony Webster, Frank Francisco and Chris Young, along with Lumsden, you'd have a Top 10 system for sure.

Eddie Pearson & Scott Ruffcorn. lol.

1993 Birmingham Barons baby!!! Can't forget about the great Larry Thomas Jr. or Luis "No Hitter" Andujar

That list is PATHETIC. No way around it.

Someone within the minor league system needs to do a better job drafting and developing quality talent.

Even those prospects traded haven't gone on to experience much success.

It doesn't matter. All that matters is that other teams thought enough of those prospects to send quality major league players to the Sox in return.

Don't even pay attention to these lists. They probably draw names out of a hat. The BA list is the only one that matters.
