The press has not rated them as the top prospects in the organization but have played well. They are, thus, underrated.
It's his shtick to make really out there and indefensibly stupid statements. Or at least it is in this case.

Retherford is making me look like an idiot. I still don't know if he'll handle AAA or MLB pitching, but he looks damn good right now.

Link is my favorite underrated Sox prospect. Another great trade by Kenny. Hopefully he continues to improve and can eventually take over the closer role once Jenks prices himself out of the Sox budget.

What is Link's scouting report?

Props for admitting it. For all the controversial statements you make, respect for admitting when you might be wrong.

I'm not as knowledgeable about the farm as many of you, but from what I'm seeing of Retherford, Shelby and Link, these guys should be able to contribute at least within the next two years if not this season.

I would like to echo guillen4life13's respect for you for admitting that you could be wrong. That's very commendable, and quite refreshing. Bravo.
