Your Latest Reminders About The Sorry State Of The White Sox Farm System
Sorry for the lack of posting since Monday. I had my wisdom teeth removed on Tuesday morning and spent the next 48 hours in a doped up state that wasn't very conducive to writing posts.
Plus, there wasn't much of anything happening anyway.
There still isn't, really, but there were a couple more reminders about how bad the White Sox farm system is released on Thursday.
Keith Law released his annual list of the top 100 prospects in baseball, and as you can expect from a man that JUST HATES THE WHITE SOX SO MUCH, there is only one White Sox on his list.
And that is Addison Reed, who checks in at 97.
MLB.com also released its list of the top 20 prospects in the White Sox organization, and like every list involving the White Sox, Reed is also on top. Though once you get past Reed and Nestor Molina, things do tend to get interesting in MLB.com's opinion.
For instance, Eduardo Escobar is ranked fourth. Even though the description of Escobar says that he'll likely be a utility infielder.
Yep, the White Sox farm system is so good that a player who is deemed to have the ceiling of a utility infielder is the fourth-highest rated player.
Let that one sink in for a bit, folks.
