I don't know how C Lee and Maggs were rated as prospects though.
Ya sadly that was what 20 yrs ago?

This also might have been done to get Gordon PT at 3rd without the need to bench Viciedo.

That's about what I'm saying, but I'm not even looking at the past with Beckham, I'm just stating that living up to any kind of hype is hard. Some players live up to it and some don't. I hope to God Beckham is a star but theres a chance he won't be.

Some people say well he'll be at least better than Fields, how do we know that? I'm not saying its bad to be optimistic but to say 100% sure he'll be better than Fields is untrue. 90% chance he will be.

It is always nice to see posts that add absolutely nothing to the discussion, and in fact make the poster look like an idiot, it makes you and the person you are quoting that much more obvious as residents of the very shallow end of the gene pool.

So much for Buddy Bell and his statements on sweeping changes in the organizations approach to developing talent, and here it is, the same old song and dance.
You simply send Beckham back down if he's not stepping up in AAA. Let's see what comes out of this.

Buddy Bell and his Fall of 2008 personnel changes were in place before Dave Wilder was fired in May of 2008?

Sox Prospects that have developed into quality MLB players--at least for one season-- in recent history (ordered by how recently it happened):

-Floyd (seemed to figure it out with the Sox, at least for one season)
-Danks (originally a TX prospect, but really turned the corner with the Sox)
-Ryan Sweeney (developed here, but immediately thrived in OAK)
-Jenks (LAA prospect but found his niche here)
-Cotts (came from OAK, but found his role with CHW)
-Rauch (found niche in MTL but was a CHW prospect)
-Crede
-Rowand (I present the can of worms. Please don't open it.)
-Garland
-Buehrle
-Lee
-Maggs (original HOU but developed in the CHW system)
-Ray Ray
