The most comprehensive Red Sox minor league discussion on the web.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Thanksgiving leftovers linger in the fridge and the last of the pumpkin pies has been finally eaten. And with the calendar poised to turn to December, we toss another log on the fire turn our eyes towards that most magical of wintry festivals. Yes, the hot stove is crackling and the winter meetings loom on the horizon. Chris and Ian start off with the 40-man roster. They break down the players protected from the rule V draft as well as the big name left exposed. They review the Arizona Fall League results. And then they take a look at the top 20 prospects and predict who gets dealt, who plays in Fenway next year and who stays down on the farm. Finally, we turn the show over to you and crack open the mailbag for some great questions.

They review the top player development stories in the system. They review the draft to end all drafts - 2011.
