Law: Sox farm system No. 5 overall

Keith Law’s yearly rankings of the top farm systems are out and the Red Sox check in at No. 5. That’s up from No. 17 last offseason (click here to see last year’s rankings).

Here’s part of Law’s take:

They rival Houston for the best top 10 of any team, with as many prospects on the top 100 as the Astros have, and while they don't have Houston's depth, Boston's system is pretty deep, with at least a half-dozen pitching prospects who reasonably project (that is, not just pie-in-the-sky forecasting) as No. 4 starters or better.
