I'm cautiously hopeful, I guess? Good to see that the Sox are actually, you know, trying to rebuild the system.
Nothing wrong with young prospects. In fact they are quite desirable. They are allowed more development time within the organization, where as college level players are more so closer to finished products. The system desperately needs depth. Decent prospects at varying levels is the goal.
