    He's just a suspect, until he delivers in the bigs...

    A young batter who makes above-average contact, always hits the ball hard and doesn't chase out of the zone?

    Is that even legal in Boston? There has to at least be some kind of rule against it with runners in scoring position... definitely if it's a ghost runner.

    There is still time to “develop” him into who we want him to be.

    I have seen a lot of hitters come through the Red Sox minor league facility, but none like him!

    He did play the 14th most games of anyone on the farm, but if they think he could use some more work, fine with me!

    Greenville Drive wins A+ championship!

    Kristian Campbell was the hero, again. He went 3-4 with an HR and 3RBI in the 7-3 win. Castro went 2-4 w BB. Rosario homered.

    Rogers started and went 3IP 1 ER.
    Penrod went 5 IP 2 ER (1BB and 7Ks)
    The staff combined for 14Ks and just 3BB and 6 hits allowed.

    Congrats!

    WOO lost 4-3 as Joely blew the save and Garza got the loss.
    Scott homered (.822 OPS)
    Rosier went 2-5 (up to .895, now.)
    EValdez walked twice (.864)

    Doesn't.....doesn't Triston Casas do all of that?
    WAR is good for something.

    Player of the Day: Kristian Campbell ended his great 2023 season on a high note with three hits and a home run in Greenville's title-clincher. After eight games with the FCL Red Sox, where he posted a .391 batting average and a 1.082 OPS, Campbell was called up to Greenville. He had a nice regular season, with an .822 OPS in 14 games and had an even better postseason. It was a successful first professional season for the 21-year old shortstop.

    He has a weird swing, but it's working so far.

    He even gave us a Dave Henderson, one flap down, home run trot.

    He is 21, but a twitchy athlete and a late to baseball ... he could make some jumps developmentally for sure, though his future might be more in the outfield.

    It is wild that Anthony - who might start next year as the top prospect in all of baseball - has made Mayer ... ALSO one of the youngest regulars in AA, and still very much one of the top dozen prospects in the game ... almost look bad.

  14. #1469
    Mayer will probably slip in the rankings a little bit, but he didn't get on the field a lot during the second half of the season. I don't think it's a drop in talent, definitely still top 10 worthy. Looks like the Sox have 2 of those guys. That's really freaking exciting.

    When was the last time a Sox farm system just graduated 2 players like Bello & Casas and still had a top 4 like this?
    1. Anthony
    2. Mayer
    3. Teel
    4. Bleis

    I'm really high on Cespedes, too, but it will take time for him to show he belongs in MLBs top 50-100.

    I also see hope in Rafaela, Yorke, Wikelman, Perales, Zanetello, Joh Garcia, Castro and Abreu.

    We have a bunch of farther away guys that will likely jump up, next year (and some that fall.)
