    Rays, Rays, Rays, Rays, Rangers, and the Orioles are really good too.

    anyone who didnt take the Rays at all should be classified as a homer...Price, Davis, Brignac, Beckham, Hellickson, and others...they are STACKED

    The Rangers are even more stacked, and they're much deeper. Feliz, Holland, Smoak, Andrus, Teagarden, Main, Beavan, Kiker, etc. It isn't like the Rays don't have a good system, they just get more attention than any other system. With the graduation of Longoria and the falling off of prospects such as Desmond Jennings, Ryan Royster, and Chris Mason, the Rangers have leapfrogged the Rays to the #1 spot IMO.

    I think it's close, but i think with the power potential in the Rangers farm and guys like Harrison, Feliz etc, they have at least become of the 1A/1B type situation. The Rays still have a lot of talent.

    The Rays still have a lot of talent, but they don't have as much as Texas does.

    Pirates, they've sucked for so long they must have had a couple good draft picks.

    Found this today....

    M Kantar (Marlborough, MA): Hi Jim, I have actually pre ordered a copy of the 2009 Prospect Handbook. I did have one question about where would the Red Sox farm system rank in MLB, about #9 overall?

    SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:06 PM ET ) The Handbook is off at the printer's and should be back in mid-January. I won't give away all of our farm system rankings—and we will update them again in spring training after more trades are made—but I will tell you that the Red Sox system ranked 13th.

    Mark Citrone (Natick, MA): The Red Sox are 13th? Weren't they in the top 5 recently? Why the change?

    SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:48 PM ET ) They graduated Buchholz, Ellsbury, Masterson and Lowrie—four of their top five prospects—to the majors last year. They have a lot of high-upside talent and could bounce back quickly as it advances through the system.

    Well solves that argument....

    ok and read the last sentence in that conversation. The Sox have won of the best run farm systems. Oviously the teams that have sucked the longest will be ahead of everyone, Rays, A's, Rangers.....

    Actually Texas had the 25th worst system in all of baseball 2 years ago and the A's have been to the playoffs 1 less time (6 vs. 7) in the last 10 years than Boston has, but lets not let facts get in the way of being upset about the state of the Red Sox farm system.

    And, actually Texas has won the best run farm system the last year according to BA.

    the state of the Sox farm system? When you have big named guys not being considered prospects anyone than the farm ranking will oviously fall until the younger prospects develope.

    way to go genius

    Its is said the texas farm system has the most depth but i would go with atlanta. Atlanta's top two prospects are alot better.

    Doubt it. Does it even matter? That was from 7 months ago.
