    I would say our farm is above average, but not greatest.

    NFL = Screwed.

    1. Carrasco
    2. Marson
    3. Donald
    4. Happ
    5. Taylor
    6. Brown
    7. Berry
    8. Collier
    9. Drabek
    10. D'arnaud.

    I'll take this group as my Phillies top 10. Some people will debate Collier I think, but that guy is going to be a beast.

    I would probably put this top 10 around 20 or so, but Buddy Bell is starting to turn this farm system into a good thing.

    Blue Jays

    1) Travis Snider(top 10) - one of the best swings I've seen in years.
    2) J.P. Arencibia(top 100) - exremely good offensive production from a defensive postion.
    3) Brett Cecil(top 100) - one of the stronger lefties in the minors. Great stuff.
    4) David Cooper(top 150) - a very solid left handed homerun machine out of college.
    5) Justin Jackson(top 150) - solid defensively, ++arm and ever-improving at the plate.
    6) Kevin Ahrens(top 200) - very good young hitter(only 19), has great power and a quick swing.
    7) Ricky Romero(top 200) - former top 6 pick. lefty with a mean curve, just can't seem to pull it together.
    8) Brian Jeroloman(top 250) - patient at the plate, one of those gifted defensive catchers that don't come all too often.
    9) Scott Campbell - great middle infielder who just came on the radar this past year.
    10) Eric Eiland(top 300) - I think of him as the darkhorse in our system. Five-tool player with loads of potential, fell off last year out of college as a result of a hammy injury. Could be a semi-hidden gem if you will.

    Overall Rank: 15-20....We have quite a few solid prospects with upside but the problem is our only bonafida blue-chip prospect is Travis Snider.

    I think some of you guys are placing some of these guys too high.

    Its hard for any team to have 1-2 maybe even 3 guys in the top 50 let alone 5 guys and not be hands down the best farm system in baseball.

    1. RHP, Neftali Feliz Top 15
    2. LHP, Derek Holland. Top 25-30
    3. 1b, Justin Smoaktop Top 25-30
    4. SS, Elvis Andrus Top 40-60
    5. RHP, Michael Main 75-125
    6. C, Taylor Teagarden Top 60-80
    7. C/DH, Maximiliano Ramirez Top 60-80
    8. OF, Julio Borbon Top 60-80
    9. LHP, Martin Perez
    10. RHP, Eric Hurley Fringe 100-150
    11. OF, Engel Beltre
    12. RHP, Blake Beavan
    13.RHP, Wilfredo Boscan
    14. 2b/SS, Jose Vallejo
    15. RHP, Neil Ramirez

    I probably toned down the rankings a tad to much, with all of the top 5 possible to have better rankings depending on the publication.

    How many systems would the Rangers 6th or 7th or even 8th guy be 1 or 2 in...

    Scary system

    Mat Gamel, 3B
    Alcides Escobar, SS
    Jeremy Jeffress, RHP
    Angel Salome, C
    Jonathan Lucroy, C
    Brett Lawrie, C
    Taylor Green, 3B/2B
    Lorenzo Cain, CF
    Cole Gillespie, LF
    Jake Odorizzi, RHP

    Lots of depth and eight of the top 10 are in AA or higher so they're close to contributing. Pitching depth is lacking in the upper levels which knocks it down, but we have a ton of pitching in the rookie leagues and low A ball.

    I'd say they probably rank in the 8-12 range based on depth and how close many of their top prospects are to contributing.

    both about the same there, our minor leagues are stacked with position prospects. I am not as high on Raynor due to his age personally.


    1 Cameron Maybin top 10 5 tool talent, hit 500 in the big leagues upon call up
    2 Logan Morrison top 25 332/402/494/896 38 Doubles in the FSL - FSL MVP
    3 Michael Stanton top 25 39 HRs at 18 293/381/611/993
    4 Matt domingez top 50 GG defense, 296/354/499/853 18 HR line pretty solid with amazing defense
    5 Sean West top 80 potential 2 type pitcher
    6 Ryan Tucker top 80 1.54 Era 74/91 K/IP, 3+ pitches
    7 Jose Ceda top 80 2.08 ERA 42K/14BB, 42k/30IP
    8 Chris Coghlan top 100 - Top 2B prospect in the minors 298/396/429/825 34SB, 67BB/65K
    9 Gaby Sanchez top 100 314/404/513/917 69BB/70K AA MVP
    10 Kyle Skipworth - pure talent kid has a great swing for a catcher

    Scott cousins - Raynor could be here too. Issac Galloway and Thomas hickman are 2 to watch I think both are break out canidates
