*** Are prospects now worth more than before? I would think so. Severe restrictions are in place for overslot signings. International signings are more regulated. Less draft compensation for type A free agents loses.
And great young pitching prospects are in incredible demand. Every team wants to be the next Tampa Bay.
I hope we take some opportunity to unload excess mlb talent for more prospects. I hope we keep the top prospects we have, or at least the top 10-12. We are going to have clearly less impact from our money advantage going forward. And I haven't seen this level of minor league talent on the Redsox farm in many years.
