ok, he's #3 on soxprospects.com list.
Nobody would have thought that coming last year, which featured a very strong Sox system, possibly the strongest since Lester/Papelbon graduated. Bogaerts didn't even have that great of a year. Unfortunately the top guys either got traded(Rizzo), graduated(Reddick), got hurt(Kalish) or underwhelmed considerably(Iglesias). I'm not sure if it was Red Sox hype or not, but last year's Red Sox farm has to be one of the more disappointing systems out of the 30 teams. The Royals were close, but at least Hosmer did well.
