He looks pretty awesome, no question.

I'm not positive about his possible status, but anyway, it might make sense to not bring him up until at least late June partly due to altruistic and wise motives (let him keep improving before making it to the show) and partly due to greedy motives (would likely avoid having him hit "Super 2" status).

Anyway, yeah, between him, Allen Webster and Rubby De La Rosa, among several others, the Red Sox have what appears to be a solid nucleus of soon-to-be-MLB-level talent.

I still don't get the Shane Victorino deal, for the life of me, but whatever.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I'm really hoping to see De La Rosa pitch a bit this year. Heard good things.

See, Brye--Red Sox could have just kept Josh Reddick and not signed Shane "Rectum-Face" Victorino to that ugly contract this past winter.

And De La Rosa looks like a gem. I'm very happy the Giants won't be having to face him for the next half a decade or more in the NL West.

Wish I had a team to look forward to this year, all we got is prospects. Could be worse, we could be the LOLSTROS.

Disagree completely. While Andrus still hasn't put together a breakout offensive season, he's much more fit for NL style play and Kozma shouldn't be relied on as a potential fill in when his minor league numbers were well below average on offense. While both Rosenthal and Miller are highly thought of prospects, pitching prospects are very suspect to fail. While the Cardinals may need a pitcher or two with all of the problems they may have (Carpenter out, Lohse gone) having Andrus fill in as the full time SS would cure Stl. of any SS problems in the forseeable future. Almost always take the sure thing potential all-star over the minor league pitching prospects.

Especially Rosenthal. Andrus for Rosenthal would be highway robbery for St. Louis.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Those two (Rosenthal and Miller) are locks to be dynamite, baring a catastrophic injury. Both made an impact in September last year. Rosenthal pitched the eighth innings and was nearly untouchable coming out of the pen. Andrus is a good player, but not good enough to warrant one of the two best pitching prospects (along with Bundy). It doesn't make sense to me and I can't see them biting on that when Westbrook and Garcia are question marks moving forward.

I wouldn't even fathom giving either of those two away. There are just some players that are untouchable.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Rosenthal I'd completely disagree with. He's been ranked anywhere from the 40-60 range of top 100 prospects and Stl. is gonna use him in the bullpen for now. And I still think you're undervaluing Andrus. Guy plays great d, already has made 2 AS games, 14 fWAR before reaching the age of 25, and would be a substantial upgrade over Kozma while still being very cheap for them for the next two years. A top 50 prospect for a guy that can potentially enter top 5 SS territory soon (with all of the previously good SSs getting up in age) would be an absolute steal and I'd have to believe Jon Daniels would laugh at that offer.

Miller is debatable, especially since nowhere I've looked he's been a bonifide top 20 prospect or top 5 SP.
