    I think the appearance of D Hernandez and L Cedrola in the top 10 shows how close to each other non top prospects can be. They are very hit-or-miss.

    Groome, Chavis, Houck and Mata seem to be the consensus top 4 that are separated by a wide gap between them and the others.

    Who might be ready for 2019?

    Shawaryn or Beeks?

    Johnson, Thompson or Lakins?

    Hmmm....

    Hopefully, Smith or Thornburg can replace Kimbrel without a big drop-off, but neither have that many years of team control left. Top closers are costly on the open market these days. We may see a young pitcher fill in here by 2020, but that's being, perhaps, overly optimistic.
    If Pom bolts, the rotation will be Sale/Price/Porcello/ERod/Wright. I think Beeks deserves some spot starts this year at least.
    Fire Farrell - fucking check mark!
    Trade Pedroia
    Sign JD Martinez to play 1B/DH
    Sign Alex Cora for MGR - check plus!

    Ockimey is probably a little high there. If he's going to be an impact bat, he needs to take a big jump this year.

    Cedrola? That's a weird one.

    I do like looking at how all the rankings match up. Looks like we'll have to keep a closer eye on Brannen this year!

    Ockimey is probably a little high there. If he's going to be an impact bat, he needs to take a big jump this year.

    He did have an .820 OPS between A+ and AA ball last year at age 21. His power numbers were low (14 HRs & 43 EBH in 452 ABs), but I don't think he needs to make a big jump this year. He's got 2-3 years to get ML ready. He still is a bit "raw", but to me that can mean his ceiling is high, if he can ever refine himself.
    His K rate is way too high, but with a .385 OBP, ipt may not be that big of an issue.
