While I agree it's a nice story, it doesn't really have much bearing on the Sox as far as prospects go. Great Falls has two intriguing players in Kevan Smith (turns 24 in June) and Blair Walters, but as college players in rookie ball, it's almost impossible to gauge their skill until they are facing age appropriate competition. It could be worse though, Bristol doesn't really have a single prospect worth following.
