Who has the best Farm System

Postby quack quack » Fri Jan 20, 2006 4:40 pm

Some say the diamondbacks with Stephen Drew, Justin Upton, Connor Jackson,Carlos Quentin, and Chris Young and others.

Others say Angels with Brandon Wood, Jared Weaver, Kendry Morales, Howie Kendrick,and others.

Then there are the dodgers who may not have the Top pick ster prospects but hold the depth in their orginization that every team wishes they had.Who do u all think is the strongest?

THE DODGERS! To be homest i don't mind saying the other two are better, but since 90% of experts (including Sickles and Baseball America) say the Dodgers are the best, then they should really be included in this poll.

They have more depth and are close to as strong at the top (they do lack a Wood/Upton impact talent, but more than make up for it by depth).

It's the diamondbacks, easy. Drew, Upton, Jackson and Quentin are easily 4 of the top 15 prospects in baseball. Wood is the Angels only top-top prospect. It's the d-backs, and then a good gap, then the Angels, then another good gap, then the dodgers, then everyone else.
It's easy, fun, and 100% safe!

Angels, not only because I'm an Angel fan... but remember this name... Nick Adenhart! Not to mention we had the callups of DMac, Santana, Kotchman, and Mathis that hurt us in 'Best Farm System' race. DBacks are close and the Dodgers are number 3...

With all due respet, that Homer talking. Brandon Wood, Howie Kendrick, Kendry Morales, Jered Weaver, Erick Aybar, and Jeff Mathis are all nice, but there are only two guys there with stud talent and they are Wood and Kendrick. Weaver is really and truly overhyped and will be a 3-4 pitcher. Mathis will be a slightly above average offensive catcher who bats about .280 with 17-20 HR, alla Ramon Hernandez. Adenhart is a rookie ball pitcher who couldn't even think about making an impact in the majors until the all-star break of 2009 and most likely 2010.

Arizona has 4 potential studs in Drew, Upton, Quentin and Jackson. Not including 5-tool talent Carlos Gonzalez and power pitcher Dustin Nippert or Miguel Montero who looks to have the same upside as Mathis.
It's easy, fun, and 100% safe!
