With today's completion of the Kansas City Royals Top 20 prospects list, I am now turning my attention to the San Francisco Giants organization. The next teams in the queue after that are the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Angels, New York Mets, and the Toronto Blue Jays.
Someone asked me if I had a particular order that I do the teams in. The answer is that I always start with the Twins, Braves, and Royals, but after that there is no set pattern, other than I try to alternate leagues and divisions so that the project stays balanced geographically.
In any event, with the Giants now in progress we need to lay the groundwork for the Red Sox and get the subconscious mind percolating on that. Use this thread to discuss the Boston system. Some potential avenues of discussion:
***Do you think Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr. are ready to contribute in 2014?
***Mookie Betts: is he for real, or will he be exposed at higher levels? Where would you place him to begin '14?
***Brandon Workman: starter or reliever?
***Garin Cecchini: the new Bill Mueller?
***As always, any other thoughts about the system are welcome, including your sleepers to watch.
