    A lot to be excited about here, and I think we go deeper than 20 with some real possible contributing prospects.

    That was a little better than I expected.

    I actually expected top 3. I think we may be there next year, partially because we may not have many prospects "graduate" this year, and we have so many lower level prospects poised to rise.

    Overall good news on the potentail and progress of the super b's or whatever they're being called these days. Not sure what the New Mexico reference was reffering to with Swiihart? Who today represents the catcher of the future for the Red Sox. Assuming he can continue to work through whatever issues he has, as he learns to play a very demanding position.

    Given where we draft this June (7th) Cherington has the chance to add another impact prospect to the mix. Thereafter we should be able to take advantage of drafting at the top of each round and add two or three "players with upside". Where we rank is not as important as the consensus among the scouts regarding our prospects ability to play at the next level. Who's evaualtions of, play a key role in determaning their projectablity to be big leaguers and subsequently thier value as a commodity if the team decide to use them as chips to aquire proven major leaguers...

    Good read. Basically told us what we already knew that RS farm system is once again about to produce some help to the big club in the very near future and couldn't come at a better time. After this years draft should be one of the best. Just have to hope Ben uses it wisely, not against using prospects to make a trade that puts you over the top Hanley for Beckett/Lowell perfect example, but trading Josh Reddick for Sweeney/Bailey not a good start for Ben. Keep the prospects you know will help you and trading the ones who never really pan out is the hard part. Remember years ago when many in the media felt the Yanks traded the wrong Williams, Keeping Bernie instead of Gerald, when Gerald was thought to have the higher ceiling. Those are the type of moves that build championships. Let hope Ben is wise.

    There are a number of picks around #40 that can be valuable. On recent one that comes to mind is Jackie Bradley Jr.

    Deven Marrerro was picked around there too, and I think he'll open some eyes this year.
