Thus it looks like the Sox have depth but no real star in the minors from these rankings. This brings up the question, would you rather have a player like Fielder then Anderson, Sweeney and McCarthy.
Honestly, while I'd take 1 top 10 guy over maybe 2 "2d 50" guys, I would take 3 guys ranked 40-45 over the 1 top 10. The # of top,"cant-miss" prospects who actually do miss makes me like the chances of having at least 1 of the 3 top 50 guys make it over the chance of the 1 top 10.

Just IMO, I'm sure someone has some stats somewhere on the success rate of BA top 10 ranked players.
