2010 MLB Draft: Red Sox Draft Grades Out As One Of The Best

One day after the end of the draft, and the Red Sox seem to be clear winners.

Andy Seiler of MLB Bonus Baby listed the Red Sox in his top-5 (in no particular order), and after the 4th round pick of Garin Cecchini remarked “Best draft by far now. Wow.”

Keith Law of ESPN called the Red Sox winners in the first round, and noted that they just kept picking up more first round talent on day 2.

Jim Callis of Baseball America believes the only thing that could keep the Red Sox from having the best draft is if they don’t sign their picks.

This certainly seems to be a successful debut for Amiel Sawdaye. Despite only drafting once in the top-30 picks, the Red Sox walked away with four of Baseball America’s top-30 ranked prospects, and eight of their top-100.

Now comes the hard part: signing all that high-level talent. Some of these guys dropped for a reason, after all. But with rumors already flying in about agreements having been reached with Vitek (#20), Brentz (#36) and Cecchini (#143), that process is well under way.
