The draft had some nice gets with Light, Johnson and a guy I didn't mention because he only pitched five innings in Ty Buttrey.
I think the A levels are where the real excitement exists. That's the level where you have enough track record to get a feel for guys but enough room for development that the ceiling can be higher so it's easy to overrate. I may be guilty of that but I know heading into 2013 that Workman, Owens and Ramirez (who I'm irrationally high on) really excite me.
I didn't talk about it a lot but one important thing is the Sox are well suited to trade and I think that's important for this team. You've got three guys who can be centerpieces (Barnes, Webster, de la Rosa) and several guys (Hernandez, Workman, Owens, Britton, Ranaudo) who for varying reasons have value as a secondary piece. I'll be shocked if the Sox don't at least attempt to make a major deal this winter and I see a system that has the pieces to do that. Prior to The Trade the Sox would have been wary of a deal involving Barnes, now they can deal him and still feel like they have a front-line arm behind him (and you can substitute Webster/de la Rosa for Barnes in that sentence).
J.P. Wendelken – The name sounds like he should be running a turn of the century general store
