Recently, I recapped the league-by-league top 20 prospect lists compiled by Baseball America. This week, they have taken it one step further by weighing and totaling the scores by organization.
As such, it provides a pseudo-farm system ranking for the 30 MLB clubs. But remember, this is based solely upon the top 20 prospects in each league. Still, it is certainly worth a look.
The St. Louis Cardinals are ranked eighth, hardly an embarrassment. Yet it is a good reminder that the wealth of recently-graduated prospects cannot be sustained at that level indefinitely.
Any rankings of talent will have its ebbs and flows. The Cardinals recent number one ranking was great, but it was a reflection of a point in time that may have already passed.
