[QUOTE]In Response to Re: What would it take to pry Hernandez loose from Seattle? : Hill, I for one don't see the M's dealing Hernandez unless they get a couple of young proven impact players in return, as in ML proven.... I don't disagree the Sox and M's don't match up well or rather I don't think the Sox would deplete an already thinned farm for Hernandez. We have some pretty good prospects.
I think the M's would love to have a kid like Kalish to play left, he's a better player/prospect than Saunders...

The Red Sox had the No. 52, No. 67 and No. 97 prospects on Baseball America's
Top 100 prospect list this year (Ryan Kalish was No. 96 last year, trailing Michael Saunders at No. 30, before both lost their rooklie status). Jose Iglesias at No. 42 was the only Red Sox on mlb.com's Top 50 prospect list this year.
In contrast, the Kansas City Royals had Nos. 8, 9, 10, 18, 19, 51, 68, 69 and 83 on the BA
list. The Yankees came in at Nos. 3, 30, 41, 43, 78 and 98. Even the humble Mariners had players at No. 12, 16 and 53.http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/prospects/rankings/top-100-prospects/2011/2611328.html
Despite their 2009 BA
rankings, Ryan Kalish has outperformed Michael Saunders to date (although Saunders has played a stellar centerfield this year*). The Mariners are auditioning 24-year-old leftfielder Carlos Peguero, who last year led the Southern League in homeruns. Peguero flashed some glove and arm Friday evening.*** http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=cf&stats=fld&lg=all&qual=y&type=1&season=2011&month=0&season1=2011&ind=0
