It's ranking season! With the release of Baseball America's Red Sox Top 10 prospects list, we were joined by Alex Speier, also of WEEI.com, to talk about the list. We discussed his process for researching and writing the scouting reports and ranking the players, the tiers that developed at the top of the list and... well, too much stuff to recount here, but trust us, we talked about a lot of stuff. Just listen!

There may not be much going on, but Chris, Matt, and Jon still got up from their Thanksgiving naps to answer some reader questions.

Today, we look back at the prospects involved in the Adrian Gonzalez trade.
