Getting prospects is always a roll of the dice, some will make it and some wont. This kid has been touted so I guess that means his chances are higher than others. What the Sox are doing is getting a higher probability type of prospect to make the majors. What will come from it, no one knows but its really the only way they can go.
Yeah, maybe. But, isn't easier to just get a "I'm not impressed with him" placeholder comment in now so that you can tell everyone "I was one of the few people who told you so" if he does turn out to be a bust?
