These are my thoughts as well. The Sox desperately need to improve the farm to better situate themselves for sustained success. The farm is bottom 3 in all baseball right now. The possibility of having 6 picks in the first 3 rounds (1, S, 2) is very nice in what looks like a deep draft class. The Sox need to take advantage and actually spend if this situation comes to fruition.
