Depends on who you ask, I've seen 7th, 10th and 12th now.
We lost only 2 prospects that contributed to that great farm. I doubt we slipped more than 10 spots because of it
I think we only drop significantly if we trade D'Arnaud.
That's 8 top 20 specs traded away this past calendar year, which will take a toll on any farm. Good news is that we kept a lot of our high ceiling guys in TdA,Sanchez,Synder, and Gose. We still have a top 10 farm imo, it's just not nearly as deep as it was the past couple years.
But add in the fact that TdA and Gose will no longer be prospects by mid season this year, and you are left with a farm that is practically void of high end position players. Tons of pitching but it's also far away. Nice to have a top 10 pick at least to add to the mix, but our ranking will definitely be taking a hit this upcoming year, which is fine as long as the big club is doing well.

trade the farm for santon
I really think we should consider trading JP plus for Dickey depending on what the plus is.. I think Dickey is the real deal and should at least be a 3 starter on our team
props to vick27m

Trade Arencibia for Hellickson
Flip Hellickson, Buehrle & Lind for Hosmer or Butler
Sign Edwin Jackson, Marcum or Sanchez
