    Anthonry? Lmao, insert stereotypical-chinese accent.

    I'm surprised to see Cecchini below Swihart. Blake hasn't even played while Garin had a really great year in Lowell.

    BRING BARRETT TO CAROLINA, GETTLEMAN!

    That's the same as my top 3. Xander has too short a track record and WMB has too many red flags for me to put them over Lavarnway. I think Lavarnway has a higher ceiling and floor than WMB

    Probably at Greenville and he might start at Salem, but that's just speculation on my part.

    Bobby V is all in!

    I agree on Xander, he's too unproven to be #1. But I wouldn't put Lavs above WMB, because even if Middlebrooks has got some huge question marks, he's still playing good defense at a premier position. You don't need strong offense to become a legit 3B in the league nowadays.
    If Ryan was at least an average catcher, he'd be the #1 by a pretty good margin.

    Acually, his catching has improved a lot. I read somewhere that he was now "barley below average/average".

    Very great list and phenomenal job by RedSoxtober. Thank you.

    From what I see...my 1-3 is completely accurate with this one and most of the other guys are just switched by 1-3 spots. I am surprised Coyle didn't make the PSD's top 10.

    I'm drinking the Cecchini cool aid. He'll have a monster season if he stays healthy, kid can flat out rake. Tons of upside, very high-ceiling. This farm will look much much stronger a year from now when all that lower-level talent begins to get much more attention.

    Bradley should be ranked 10, Owens 11, Coyle 12, and Iglesias at 13.

    Iglesias sucks, cannot believe we didn't trade him when everyone was on his nuts
    Jackie Bradley Junior.... that is all

    He is ranked so high because it's almost a lock that he's pretty much a lock for the majors, most likely a starting job on some NL team at a minimum. He doesn't have a high offensive ceiling, but he is far from a terrible prospect.
