    That Angels list is jarring. They have Mike Trout and they're still bottom five. I guess that's what happens when your #2 guy U25 is neither an MLB level player nor a top 101 prospect.

    like my O's at number 6, we might bump up if Bundy can get healthy in the first half of 2014 and Gausman progresses.

    I don't see how the Nats are a better under 25 team than the Braves, the Nats have Strasburgh and Harper who are stars but then they have Rendon who right now is just an average player, they have Giolito in the list and a bunch of not that good prospects. The Braves have 3 well above average players that would easily offset the Harper and Strasburgh duo in Simmons, Heyward and Freeman, then they have the best closer in the game, one of the top young pitchers, two top 100 prospects and Alex Wood. I think is not that close.

    Jose Fernandez and Giancarlo > Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper. Braves should be #2 with Marlins #3 and Nationals #4. Heaney is better than Rendon.
    through 06/28/2014...

    2014 Giancarlo Stanton (on pace for)

    81/81 G
    .316/57/21/60/7 w/ 4.4 fWAR & 5.1 rWAR

    He's comin' for that title, Mike Trout (on pace for)

    75/79 G
    .312/53/18/59/10 w/ 5.4 fWAR & 5.0 rWAR

    Sucks that the mets have finally built a good farm system but the Braves and Nationals are both much better now and stacked for the future. Not worried about the Marlins as they will lose stanton soon.

    ^ I highly doubt the Marlins lose Stanton. I would bet that they will give him a large contract and build around him.

    On second thought the Braves have a case to be even number one ahead of the Cards.

    Remember these rankings include both ML talent as well as Minor League talent. While you can make an argument that the Braves have a better core of 25 and under talent on the ML roster, the Nationals have a better Minor league talent at the moment. This is why the Nationals are raked one spot ahead of the Braves.

    But I really love the Cardinals. Just the class of MLB year in year out. But the Braves arenít far behind them.

    As a Yanks fan I do find it surprisingly easy to root for the Cards - they just seem to make all the right moves and currently have to be seen as the class of MLB

    The Nats have better minor league talent? Yeah but not by much, the same baseball prospectus ranked the Nats farm as the 18th best in the league, while the Braves sit at number 24. That's not a big difference in my opinion, and the only reason the Nats have a better farm system is Giolito, so no, the Nats shouldn't be ahead of the Braves. And prospects is not the same as established players which the Nats can't come close to the Braves. Prospects can always bust.

    and then trade him when it doesn't work?

    Yeah, I'd imagine the only reason they aren't is because of the list of prospects the Cardinals still have coming.

    Not many top 100 specs, but a ton of high floor, future MLB regulars in the system (with a couple of high ceiling guys like Piscoty, Kelly, Reyes)

    If the Marlins play decent this season and they throw something reasonable at him he will accept, although I think Miami waited too long. They better not f up with Fernandez though. Him and Trout are the future of the league.

    2014 Giancarlo Stanton (on pace for)

    81/81 G
    .316/57/21/60/7 w/ 4.4 fWAR & 5.1 rWAR
