Default Another Article on White Sox Top Prospects

Link to Article

They grade the top 20 White Sox prospects for 2009 and we only have 3 guys with a better than a C+ grade (Beckham, Poreda, and Flowers).

Nice find, sir.

Man, if there is anyway we can get lucky and Brandon Allen can keep busting his ass and keep hitting on all levels, we'll have our old power hitting guys replenished with young power hitters like Allen, Flowers, Viciedo, Beckham, etc. Obviously a lot of things have to fall perfectly in place and most if not all expectations have to be met/exceeded for this to happen, but it's great to dream about.

It makes me a little sick to my stomach that what we got for Swisher is rated 14th in our system. In Kenny We Trust?

John's fairly adamant about the meaninglessness of his ranking of guys C+ or below. Lots are interchangeable. That being said, he was pretty low on Marquez last season as well.

The baseball america article says this:

The system's pitching depth took a hit with the Swisher trade


How did the Swisher trade HURT our depth? We added guys. I dont get it.
