Probably the best job of rating the prospects so far. I still don't agree with having Tracy in the top 10 though, way too old for the level he pitched at and possesses about zero control. It's a shame that Rogowski keeps getting slighted, he's one hell of a hitter.

Phil Rogers should read this...

I've always been a sucker for the "better " player the team has in the minors. The Sox had a great run, albeit with two different era's from 1983-93. Kittle, Ozzie, Blackjack, Robin, Hurt, Alex, all were top rookies, with a couple winning rookie of the year honors. I realize a lot is expected of the club this year, thereby reducing the possibility of a rookie making an impact, but I'd love to see what some of our kids could do in a situation in which the expectations weren't very high. The Sox have had a great run since 1990, but I wonder if the team puts too much pressure on it's rookies. The team is this close, but rookie production is eesential to put it over the top. Does the pressure weigh on these guys too much? I'm by no means advocating a losing team, but is it fair to expect rookies to be consistent contributors on teams in the hunt for a divisional title?
