    Is he better than the top 2-3 we had signed before him?

    Ask harmony. Ben Badler's tweet may be a misspelling or he may share the same name as the prospect in the Mariners system.

    A lot of these kids agree to terms with teams when they're 13-14 before they officially sign and are taking off of showcases. The scouting is messy, it's not the like the MLB draft. The fluidity between the #1 ranked guy and the #30th ranked guy in the IFA class is ten times messier than in the mlb player draft.

    I get that, but I do feel better knowing we got more well-regarded IFSs than most other teams.

    We've done pretty well, recently, after dipping a little bit and suffering through the penalties we incurred under Ben's regime.

    2004: Doubront
    2005: Y Navarro
    2006: Dice-K, Okajima
    2007: Roman Mendez
    2008: Tazawa, W Cuevas
    2009: Bogaerts, Montas, Iggy
    2010: J Aro
    2011: Margot, T-W Lin
    2012: Basabe, J Guerra, G Bautista
    2013: Devers, DHern
    2014: Moncada, Espinoza, R Castillo, Ed Bazardo
    2015: B Mata
    2016: H Velazquez (Penalty Phase)
    2017: Bello, Rafaela, E Quiroz, G Jimenez
    2018: Wikelman, Paulino, Bonaci, J Encarnacion, A Bastardo, M Mejicano
    2019: L Perales, J Salazar, J Garcia, J Chacon
    2021: Bleis, J Paez, L Ravelo, Sawamura, E Polanco, A Mejias
    2022: F De Leon, F Encarnacion, J Garcia

    Classing Yoshida as a prospect is questionable, I guess.
    Championships since purchase by John Henry group: Red Sox 4 Yankees 1

    The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 postseason games against the Yankees.

    They listed Dice-K as a prospects, way back when, too.

    Doesn't seem right. Yoshida is 29 and costing us $105 mill.

    Rusney Castillo cost us over $70M and Moncada's fee and 100% tax cost us a ton, too, but they were both younger than Yoshida and Dice-K.

    I get why they consider them "prospects," and they did not play MLB, so that's why they call them that.

    Yeah, not a big deal one way or the other.

    It just further reinforces the idea that Bloom is a great farm builder!

    BA has a long history of considering Japanese free agents as prospects. They also put 31yo Kosuke Fukudome on their list at one point…
