Thanks for posting, and this is all good. Thanks for posting, and we have always been open to other teams' fans here, as long as you are respectful of where you are.
I tend to agree with danman mostly, I think you've got Short too high (I like him, but probably not Top 10 in the system yet), Mitchell too high as well with his struggles, and I'd even add Leesman as being too high.
We're actually overdue for our own Top 25 list that we had been publishing about 3 times a year. We have a whole blog site devoted to this stuff - futuresox.com. You should check it out. And watch for a new list soon.
For sure I will check it out, I love this stuff. Haha. Thanks for the comments. One thing that is difficult in doing a list for the Sox is when a system isnt all that deep (same for my Tigers), I felt I wanted to reward a couple guys for production (Leesman and Short), if I was doing pure ceiling, yeah Escobar and Thompson probably would've made it. I try to balance those two things on my list, which is why I have Mitchell. I just think Leesman and Short have a better chance at reaching their ceilings, which admittedly aren't as high.
I've learned as a Tigers and baseball fan in general to respect my opponents. We have lost to the Twins too many times for me not to, but I think it comes down to the Tigs and Sox this year.
