    If these guys master command and control, they will become really good major league starters

    - Bello
    - mata
    - winkleman
    - d. De la Rosa
    You make a good point, but plenty of very good pitchers do it without "electric stuff." Sure, the electric guys have a better chance, but if we can get a serviceable #3 or 4 SP'er or two from the other group, that would be extremely helpful, as we would have more money to spend on other high need areas.

    What encourages me is the quantity of "second tier" pitchers we have and some of the recent numbers they have put up. We don't need all or even half to succeed- only 1-2 out of the 5 or 6 listed below:

    Winckowski: doing well in the bigs
    Crawford: doing very well, lately
    Murphy: lead Sox minors in IP (104). Has a .595 OPS Against/3.12 ERA & 110K:45 BB
    Walter: .585 OPSA/3.59 ERA and a great 75:7 K:BB ratio (58 IP)
    Seabold: struggled in MLB, but .538 OPSA/2.26 ERA in AAA (55:14 K:BB in 56 IP)
    Ward: Looking okay since coming off surgery
    Drohan: .711 OPSA/4.33 ERA but 123 K:37BB in 95 IP
    Uberstine: .677 OPSA/4.27 ERA but 90K:29BB in 78 IP

    When's the last time we had 8 or more pretty good looking second tier pitching prospects doing this well?

    Then, there is German for the pen (.497 OPSA and 49K:17BB in 35 IP.)

    I, too, am I high on Bello & Mata. Wikelman struggled this year at A+, but he still looks hopeful. Did you mean Luis de la Rosa? The guy we got for Beni?

    I do not think he is major league starter material, but I think he could be a much better lefty reliever than D hernandez.

    New Soxprospects rankings out.

    While ranked #5 in the system, Miguel Bleis has been ranked with the highest ceiling in the Sox system. This guy might be the next great international signing. Wish he was three years older, could use a good CFer right about now.

    Kavadas with another walk!

    Updated after latest moves and draftee ranking placements:

    Beyond drafting, minor league FA additions and IFA signings, Bloom had traded for the following prospects. While the list seems more quantity vs quality orientated, I do feel like we have some promising prospects and some long shots with various degrees of upside potential.

    9 Winckowski (w Cordero & others for Beni)
    12 Seabold (w Pivetta for Workman & Hembree)
    14 E Valdez (Vaz)

    23 Downs (w Verdugo & Wong for Betts and Price)
    26 Abreu (Vaz)
