ESPN Rates Sox Farm System As Fifth Best

ESPN has named the Red Sox minor league system as the fifth best in the major leagues. Topping the list was Theo Epstein's Chicago Cubs system, followed by the farm systems of the Minnesota Twins, Houston Astros, New York Mets and Red Sox. Other teams in Boston's division ranked as follows: Toronto #19, The Evil Empire #20, Baltimore #22 and Tampa Bay #23. So far, Ben Cherington has resisted the temptation to trade any of his top prospects to fill needs on the big club—although there is still plenty of time to do so before the start of Spring Training.
