After a lackluster effort against the Chicago White Sox over the weekend, it's finally safe to declare the Red Sox season over.

With 24 games remaining in the 2010 regular season, Boston still stands nine games out of the AL East race behind the Yankees, and 6.5 games out of the Wild Card behind the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Red Sox could win every single game they have left and still miss the playoffs as long as the Yankees and Rays continue to play at least .500 ball.

But the season was not a complete failure. The Red Sox did manage to haul in one of the strongest draft classes in baseball this year, further stockpiling their already loaded farm system.

With these assets, the Red Sox are poised to make a major splash in 2011 and return to the throes of playoff glory. Here are Boston's top 2010 draftees and what value each could potentially bring to the club.
