Keith Law’s Farm System Rankings Are Out!
But since I don’t subscribe to The Insider anymore, I don’t really know what they are. :) It’s not the newest news, they came out on Feb 4th. Maybe some of you have seen the list. I expected us to be ranked near the bottom and, sure enough, we’re ranked 26th.
Here are the top 5 teams:
1. St Louis
Rank #2-5 isn’t surprising, those teams always suck and always have the best draft spots. I was a little surprised to see our great rival The Cardinals ranked #1.
The D-backs were ranked 15th, the Dodgers 18th, and the Padres 6th (he ranked the Padres #1 last year).
I don’t pay too much attention to other team’s farm systems since they’re always so fluid (trades, injuries or just players who never pan out). And even though we’re ranked 26th, we don’t have too many holes to fill so there are enough players in our system to fill the few spots that will come up in the next year or two. One thing that’s a little frustrating is that the Giants have pumped an awful lot of money into their search internationally for players and not seen a very good return on that investment. Yet.
