    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

    Agreed! I think that the Rangers will have the #1 ranked system by Baseball America this year. They are extremely deep at the key positions - especially pitching.

    just in time for the opening of the new stadium hopefully in 2012 they should be ready on the field as a contender. it should be an interesting ride.

    My list of Oakland A's top Prospects:

    1. Trevor Cahill
    2. Brett Anderson
    3. Gio Gonzalez
    4. Chris Carter
    5. Aaron Cunningham
    6. Adrian Cardenas
    7. Vincent Mazzaro
    8. Henry Rodriguez
    9. Sean Dolittle
    10. Michel Inoa

    Michel Inoa could be number 1 by the end of next season. 3-10 can easily change at anytime. A lot of other names can also be placed in the top 10 like Josh Donaldson, Jemile Weeks, Brett Hunter Craig Italiano and others. We have a very deep farm system.

    Oakland A's
    San Francisco 49's
    San Jose Sharks

    too bad they will trade all their good players by that time.

    it is a top 10 system. Probably around 4th but not the best.

    Would you like to bet a Baseball America or Baseball Prospectus full subscription on that? Easy bet I will have all year.



    Texas is the hands down 1/1a in all publications lists right now. But if you are so sure, pony up. It doesn't help that Jim Caliis said this on the 24th of Nov...

    The Rangers have the best farm system in baseball, but it's more than a little hyperbolic to suggest they have that many catchers who would be at the top of the depth chart for any other organization.

    I'd be interested to hear which teams you believe have a better farm than Texas.
    My blog- analysis of the San Francisco Giants, Baseball, and Sabermetrics.

    Name three or four better. You won't be able to because it's the best, hands down.

    Yup. In 32 at-bats. What a stud.

    And you failed to mention that Maybin hit .143 in his callup with the Tigers in 2007. And he's also struck out 29 times and drawn just six walks in the majors.

    Maybin's an incredible talent, but he's extremely overrated. He's still very raw and he's got terrible plate discipline. He won't be ready for the bigs (and I won't be impressed) until he cuts down on the K's.

    As for my team's top prospects, someone already posted the A's, so here are the Orioles:

    O's Rank/Name/Position/2009 Age/MLB Rank

    1. Matt Wieters, C, 22 (1)
    2. Chris Tillman, RHP, 22 (Top 15)
    3. Brian Matusz, LHP, 22 (Top 30)
    4. Jake Arrieta, RHP, 23 (Top 50)
    5. Brandon Erbe, RHP, 22 (Top 60)
    6. Nolan Reimold, OF, 24 (Top 100)
    7. Zach Britton, LHP, 22
    8. Brandon Snyder, 1B/DH, 23
    9. David Hernandez, RHP, 24
    10. Troy Patton, LHP, 23

    It's kind of fun to know that one of your teams has the best prospect in baseball...
