    On Yorke:

    "He's potentially a double-plus hitter with average power who can stay on the infield"

    If he can stay at 2b, that is the biggest win for this org.

    It would be great, if he can stick at 2B, but if his hit tool becomes as great as it looks like it might, we can find a spot for him anywhere, even at DH, that will help the team.

Maybe he works out. Maybe Bloom sees things differently. But this looks like a reach where some more upside or more polished players were available. For the first time in awhile, I like our first rounder better than the Sox.
    He's referring to Austin Wells, a beefy C who isn't great behind the dish. Maybe he sticks there for a while like Gary Sanchez, but he has DH written all over him without Yorke's hit tool.

    I still like Wells. He looks like a Schwarber type who will probably stick behind the plate early in his career as a backup while getting starts in the OF and at 1B. I was not expecting Yorke to tear it up like he did. The rankings are the rankings. MLB has Dominguez in the teens, Gil at the back end and Volpe and Peraza similar. Theyíve got Duran in the 20s and Yorke in the back end of the top 100.

    Iíve said before and Iíll say again, Sox system is top heavy. This doesnít change that perception. It wonít be for long, though. Bloom is a builder and better suited for todayís game than our GM.

    @SoxProspects
    A day after Baseball America's 2022 top 100 prospect list came out, Baseball Prospectus releases their Top 101. The same four Red Sox made the list.

    -Marcelo Mayer (17)
    -Nick Yorke (40)
    -Triston Casas (44)
    -Jarren Duran (81)

    Being top heavy is not a bad thing. Most of the very best players come from the top 90 or 100.

    We do drop off quickly after our 4th best prospect, but we have a lot of hopeful prospects that might deliver 1-2 to the top 100, maybe, after the 2022 season ends. (Duran will graduate from prospect status.)

    fangraphs has this:

    NYY
    60 Volpe
    50 Peraza, Medina, Dominguez, Vargas
    45+ Schmidt, Y Gomez, Pereira, A Gomez
    45 D Garcia, L Gil, O Cabrera, T Sweeney, K Waldichuk
    40+ (5 players)
    40 (7 players)
    35+ (12 players)

    They have not scored the Sox, yet, but I doubt we are this deep.

    I'm not disagreeing that the Yankees farm system is pretty good. I just think the value for their prospects tend to be a little overinflated.

    I agree.

    I'm not sure if the greater depth in the Yankee system outweighs our top heavy advantage, but I don't think jacko can blast our farm, anymore.

    Thanks Bloom & DD!

    Your farm will be deeper than ours in 2 years, IMO. Bloom has knocked the first pick out of the park two years in a row. Cashman seems to make most of his hay on the INTL market and in the mid rounds with collegiate pitchers. Eventually, the better drafter will win, especially if an international draft is instituted

    Our last 3 first round picks have been great:

    Mayer
    Yorke

    How do you think Cashman's strategy will work out if they institute an international draft? Will that be better for the Yanks? Worse?
