If you believe in the numbers, and enjoy having a little scouting mixed in, then Keith Law is a great read. As he does annually now, Law just released his Top 100 prospects in baseball. Now, only the first 25 are at the best price, which is free. But if you are an Insider then you can read them all. Each of the 100 players has a paragraph or two describing their positive attributes and Law doesn’t avoid mentioning the negative as well. The top two prospects are Matt Wieters, who may have more pressure than the average prospect, and that is an understatement. And the blazing lefty, David Price comes in second. When Price came in and struck out Drew with the bases loaded in game seven last season, his stuff showed itself, its “electricity.”
As for the Red Sox, they have five players in the top 100: Lars Anderson, Michael Bowden, Nick Hagadone, Junichi Tazawa, and Daniel Bard. Law ranks the Top 10 from each organization, too.

No, I am not an ESPN advertiser, but this is a very thorough, in depth list of the best players in the lower levels, and a few that are basically up for good now (unless they seriously falter at the Big-League level).
