Re: Justin Upton on the block, expected to be moved, should the sox trigger a deal for him?

Song, Marte, Bowden, Anderson, Westmorland, Ranaudo
Take a look at the above #1 prospects
Only Anderson made it to #1. Bowden and Ranaudo to #2, Wesymoreland #4.
I'm all for trading to get Upton, but why be dishonest about it?
Why not list out the real #1's over the years? And all of them...
2003: Jorge de la Rosa, Youkilis, F Sanchez (Lester/HanRam got to #2)
2004: HanRam, Youk, Lester (B Moss to #2, Pedey & Shoppach to #3)
2005: Papelbon & HanRam (Pedey & A. Sanchez to #2/3)
2006: Papelbon, Lester, Ellsbury (Hansen to #3)
2007: Ellsbury, Lester, Buch (Bowden to #3)
2008: Buch, Masterson, Anderson (Ells, Bowden & Lowrie to 2/3)
2009: Anderson & Kelly (Reddick, Bard, Kalsih and Bowden to 2/3)
2010: Kelly (Kalish, Reddick & Rizzo)
2011: Kalish & Middlebrooks (Iggy, Ranaudo, Doubront)
2012: Middlebrooks & Bogaerts (Ranaudo, Barnes, Bradley)
Some pretty good low cost top propsects made it bigtime.
