Keith Law is a smart guy and he knows his role at ESPN is to write inflammatory bull**** to generate pageviews and Insider subscriptions. I sincerely have a hard time believing he genuinely thinks what he writes most of the time. It's easy to not take him very seriously, not just because of his obvious vendetta against the Sox (though, proclaiming their farm system bad the last few years isn't exactly going out on a limb there), it's just because of his super aggressive, in your face kind of attitude when even a casual baseball observer can see that anyone who thinks they have an infallible opinion when it comes to baseball prospects is crazy.

That said, if Law was half as good of a talent evaluator as he thinks he is, he wouldn't be buried behind a paywall at ESPN.
