    False.

    The Dodgers have a better farm then the Sox do and probably will for a while.

    They AREN'T prospects anymore... They aren't going back down...

    Sox are still up their because of guys like:

    SP Michael Bowden
    2B/SS/3B Jed Lowrie (Compared to Carlos Guillen)
    SP/RP Justin Masterson
    1B Lars Anderson (Compared to James Loney)
    OF Josh Reddick (Compared to Paul O'Neill)
    OF Ryan Kalish (Compared to Nick Markakis)
    SS/3B Michael Alamanzar (Compared to Jorge Cantu)
    3B Will Middlebrooks (Compared to Scott Rolen)

    Just to name a few... Theo Epstein and his boys will continue to draft and sign phenomenal talent and keep the Sox at the top portion of the farm rankings for years to come... You can count on that...

Like I said they will fall like a rock, to the bottom? of course not but right around the middle of the pack.

    Trust me the Dodger's farm won't fall like a rock when Kershaw isn't considered a prospect anymore.

    Stop embarrassing yourself. I'm starting to think you have no idea on other clubs farms, let alone your own.
    Ha. you wanna talk about losing top prospects? Lets look at the players in the Dodgers top 10, that will lose prospect status. Kershaw, losing the best pitching prospect will hurt a ton, Andy Laroche, Blake Dewitt, Delwynn Young, Hu. So your losing 5 of your top, including one who is possibly the top prospect in all of baseball, yet your farm wont fall at all in the ranking. ****ing please, when you return from homer land, let us know, until then, stop embarrasing yourself.

    The Sox system will fall also, which is fine, that just means are young players are making there way to the bigs. Ang with guys like Bowden, Anderson, Reddick, Almanzar, and Bard all having good seasons, and some were already ranked high.It will fall, but not like a "rock" as you would like to think.

    Unfortuanttly Masterson and most likely Lowrie wont be considered prospects anymore.

    I agree we still have a powerful farm after trading Laporta and Next year it will get even deeper. If I had to choose now I would say the Brewers, Rays and the A's

    Chris Houston's world, you just living in it

    Florida Marlins should be on this list. They always find youth in their minors and inject it into the team and find ways to make playoff runs.

    But Rays still have the best.

    My god, Florida has a very bright baseball future ahead, doesn't it?

    The Royals shouldn't be a choice. Their few decent prospects are already up, hitting .260 with limited power.

    Actually the Dodgers have the 8th best system, the Sox have the 2nd, you're an uber homer.
