Scouting Report

Brandon Moss has come a long way, tuning it up for a big run into last year's Eastern League playoffs, where he was voted the EL 2006 MVP. A high schooler, he has had a longer learning curve than other Red Sox farmhands, but he is learning and improving to major league caliber by the day. The door would appear to have slammed shut on him with the J.D. Drew signing, but he remains, like Hanley Ramirez before him, one of the Red Sox top trade prospects.
