Impressive.

I wonder if Brandon Allen was close to making the list.

Good to see Viciedo so high, along with Poreda.

This list has way, way more credibility than the BA White Sox top 10 earlier this season, which was put together by none other than Phil Rogers.

Flowers still seems a bit low. I guess the questions of whether or not he can catch full time are holding him back.

Something interesting was the ETA for each player. All but Flowers have an ETA of 2009. Flowers has an ETA of 2010. It looks like we're on the right track minor league wise, we still have a long way to go to fix this system.

For all the crap the Sox scounting department gets, there are 8 current or former Sox farmhands on this list, with all but one (Flowers) beings signed by the Sox...Carter, Cunningham, Cortes, and Gio to go along with Beckham, Vicedo, and Poreda. Not bad.

Viciedo
Poreda
Flowers -Vazquez trade
Richard
Allen
Danks - 2008 draft
Lillibridge-Vazquez trade
Getz
Shelby
Ely
Cole Armstrong
Eduardo Escobar
Clevlan Santeliz
Jose Martinez
Jhonny Nunez- Swisher trade
Brent Morel - 2008 draft
Santos Rodriguez-Vazquez trade
Brian Omogrosso
Jeff Marquez- Swisher trade
Jon Gilmore-Vazquez trade
Jon Link
Dexter Carter
Dan Hudson
Carlos Torres
Jayson Nix
Adam Russell
Broadway
CJ Retherford
Greg Infante

BA thinks Beckham will see some time with the Sox in 2009? I know that could include anything, even a Sept. call-up, but .
