Default MiLB's Top 50 prospects

It's only up to 31 right now.

No Sox players yet.

I expected Beckham to be somewhere between 35 - 50 but he hasn't been.

Is it really possible for him to crack the top 20?

There's no way he would be ahead of Tim Beckham.

Buster Posey ahead of Tim Beckham? Maybe.

Posey's video said he's the highest ranked college position player from the 2008 darft, therefore Gordon is not on their top 50 list.

He must have just missed the cut and he's around 50-60. I find it hard to believe he's in the Top 10, and ranked higher than guys like Matt LaPorta, Buster Posey, Tommy Hanson, Andrew McClutchen, and Dexter Fowler.

I think since it's MiLB's site they take into account a lot into what your minor league career has been. The picks of 2008 haven't had much MiLB experience.

Edit: After looking at the list though is this MiLB's list? It's linked to MLB. I don't know, but now it mighit not surprise me if Gordon Beckham is in the top 10.

But there are plenty of guys on there from the top of the 2008 draft: Tim Beckham, Buster Posey, Brian Matusz, Yonder Alonso, Eric Hosmer. That's 5 of the 7 guys drafted before Beckham, so that doesn't play TOO much of a role.

Hopefully this will help temper that insane "Beckham will be starting in 2009" talk around here.

I'm sticking with he'll be up sometime in 09, and starting opening day, 2010.

Not really. Beckham has a huge start to 2009 and he hops into the Top 20-30.

Well realistically you can say that about anyone ranked 50-70.

Of course. My point was, these things can change quite a bit from year to year...or even month to month.

He should be rookie of the year in the A.L. in 2009, if not the MVP.

Yeah, but I think there are people who actually believe that Beckham will be the Opening Day starting second baseman for the Sox next year, based on the 63 PA's he had in Kannapolis and 74 in the AFL.
