Just because they promoted a bunch of guys to the majors, does not mean their farm system is very good. Brian Omogrosso, Deunte Heath, Jhan Marinez, and Leyson Septimo are nothing to write home about. Plus not to mention, the greatest call-up of the year, being Jose Quintana, is not a homegrown prospect. Sox signed him in the offseason from the Yankees organization. The Sox don't have many guys that are A list prospects and haven't produced many impact players. I think they are a step in the right direction though, and are still better than they were last year, but I'd still rank them last.
