Default percentages

how good have these guys actually turned out????
I have always wondered what the % of top prospects that make it compared to the guys who aren't. I'm talking about guys who become well respected and stars.

didn't succeed

McCarthy-always injured
Rauch-see above
Caruso-out of baseball
Abbott-out of baseball
Anderson-average ballplayer

did succeed


guys who weren't top prospects

Linebrink-wasn't with Sox, but wasn't a big time prospect

tell me if I'm right on these guys I don't follow the minors that closely.

I believe the difference is that the highly touted prospects brought up with the Sox didn't really pand out at the MLB level with a few exceptions. The prospects that produced for the Sox came from other teams through a trade. It points out the issues with the Sox minor league flaws more than anything else.
