    Don't tell Softy there's another knuckleballer in the system.

    Thanks for the read.

    Good read. Looking forward to seeing a few of these guys in 2013...I'm hoping to see De La Rosa break into the major league rotation at some point.

    Hoping Ranaudo comes back strong as well, as he was quite highly regarded a couple of years ago.

    For once we have a lot of good pitching prospects at various levels in the farm.

    There are many pitchers not mentioned in this article that could rise quickly in the prospects lists.

    I forget who (flapjack maybe), but somebody posted that a big market team can expect to add 1.5 minor leaguers to its major league roster / year.

    Note : 1.5 minor leaguers who stay.  This doesnt include cup of coffee call-ups or desperation (due to injury) call-ups.

    I wish I still had the link because the arguement was well formulated and the math was sound.

    We added two last year (Middlebrooks and Doubront).  So the law of averages predicts one this year.  I'm going with De La Rosa.

    It'll have to happen due to injury, but with this team lately, that's almost a given.

    I hope you're right.

    I'd like to see what he can do.

    i wonder if they count BP arms in that math. it seems we have a couple BP pitchers make the jump form the minors to the majors almost every year. but i'd put my money on RDLR to stick this season at least one of our starters is going to go down and RDLR will be a prime cantiate to take his place (as long as its not too early into the year)

    I would assume that pen arms are not counted.  If they were, I would expect the number to be much higher because of the high turnover associated with pen arms.

    Wasn't me, lol. But that's an interesting observation. My guess is that we've outperformed that number in some recent years, whereas in others we'd have been lucky to graduate even one true prospect.

    The last few seasons have been a bit of a dry spell, but the current prospect crop reminds me a lot more of the roughly 2005-2008 time period, when we had a ton of homegrown talent come up to the major league club and start contributing (see Youk, Papelbon, Lester, Pedroia, Ellsbury, Buchholz). My hope is that we'll see a similar infusion of young talent over the next several seasons as De La Rosa, Webster, Barnes, Bogaerts, Brentz, Bradley, and others start arriving.

    The odds still stay at 1.5. Last year should not change future odds.

    I like de la Rosa as the best bet to come up and stay as well, but my sleeper is Linares.

    [QUOTE]

    The average baseball career is 5.6 years. There are 30 teams with 25 per roster = 750 players. Divide 5.6 into 750 = 134. On average 134 players' careers end each year and the void is filled with 134 new players from the minors. 134 divided by 30 teams = 4.5 per team.

    A quick stab at gussing how many call ups per year. This analysis is probably flawed but I gave it a try anyway.

    [/QUOTE]

    Many of these "openings" are filled by prospects who never stick in MLB.

    Nice to see system loaded w/ propects again an not to far off. Reminds of prior to 07 WS team when the talk was about Pedroia, Lester, Paps, Ellsbury, Hanley, Delcarmen, Lowrie and others who didn't work out so well and how the RS would contend for years. Probably not as long as some might have liked. But good to see a bright future not too far off.

    The pitching prospects sounds promising and the sox farms system is rated at 5th spot in the league. Maybe having a few FA signings for 3 yrs. is not such a bad plan after all.

    I'm thinking "sleeper" means a prospect not in the top 10 or 20 on the team's list of top prospects. 

    I actually like de la Cruz more than Brentz.

    Read some of the comments about Webster and how some Dodger fans viewed RDLR and Webster. I'm kind of excited.

    I was shocked we got these two pitchers and dumped CC at the same time!

    They instantly doubled our pitching prospect outlook.
