MLB Predictions: 10 Boston Red Sox Prospects Most Likely to Flame Out

Welcome to the minors

I was charged with writing a column about the top Boston Red Sox prospects that will amount to less than expected.

This is a very difficult assignment for several reasons.

The first being that most of these guys have never stepped foot on a Major League diamond—who's to know how their skills will translate in the Bigs? The second—and more troubling reason—is because I am essentially pretending to know more about these kids than the generously paid Red Sox scouts who make a living signing them.

So, I’m going to present to ten Red Sox prospects that I think have some serious skill. I’ll tell you why some of them will help Boston by flaming out as a Sox player and being traded to another team where they will probably have a good Major League career. I'll  also tell you why some prospects will truly flame out and not reach the Majors with any club—an unfortunate reality for most minor league players.
