In Response to Re: FanGraphs lists Top 15 Red Sox prospects
[QUOTE]Well it's nice too know that the Sox actually have a top 15. The order is irrelevant since they always sign FA's and continually block their own rising stars! So making this list is pointless.

Any starter or reliever in our system has had ample opportunity to make the 25 man roster and earn an important slot. Some got a shot this year:
Kyle Weiland- 5 starts
F. Doubront- was injured and misses his shot
F. Morales- 36 games
M. Bowden- 14 games
J. Tazawa- was injured and barely got a chance
BTW, who blocked Lester, Buch and Bard's rise?
Who blocked Ellsbury, lowrie, and Dustin's rise?
Who else got a shot in 2011?
Lowrie 341 PAs (got injured)
Reddick 278 PAs (couldn't earn a FT position)
Lavarnway (43), Navarro (40, then traded), Iglesias (barely got a look), and Anderson (minimum duty in last 2 years).
The only "block" I see is Scutaro (Iggy) and maybe Salty (Lava).
