Reed is a fine prospect, but he's merely a reliever. After him, there is pretty much nothing. Callis isn't the only one noting the Sox having the worst system by far right now.
I know the Sox farm system needs work. I'm just not sold on how good the Cubs farm system is. Reed is almost certainly on the 2012 White Sox. Of the four Cubs prospects you mentioned, Jackson might be with the big club but that's about it and the jury is still out on how high a ceiling he might have. Reed could become a big league closer.

Aren't the Cubs rumored to be moving McNutt to Boston as compensation for Theo Epstein?
