Thank you! I remember listening to the Score 1999-2005, when I had time on my hands, there seemed to be lots of talk about how loaded the Cubs farm system was at the time. There was Hee Sop Choi, Bobby Hill, Dave Kelton and a load of pitchers with great K/IP. And whenever discussion of minor league talent came up you could rely on there being a caller, "Paul", who was ready to build up the hype on the Cubs stars of the future. Caller "Paul" always was sure to bring out how much better theCubs prospects were in comparison to theSox too.

It seems to me that then and now there are always people on the ready to say something negative about Sox prospects but in the end the Sox do better than expected.
