the Pirates farm system is considered to be one of the best in all of baseball... im gonna go with Perez by a tiny bit.
Honestly I don't think the Pirates farm system is that good ... def not a top farm system in my mind. They do have some good prospects, but most all of them are pitchers. So I don't see that helping Perez out in the future.
They don't have any impact hitters in their system, future looks bad for their offense.
i can see where youre coming from . their pitching in the minors is definitely
better but but they have a couple of exciting prospects with power (something the current team clearly lacks) like Beasley. and they'll most prolly get a position player in return for Benson. compared to the past i think their offense should improve to respectable levels in the next few years... Wilson and Bay are everyday players. Mackowiak too. the other Wilson, the one whos a top 3 def SS, also has turned the corner offensively.
i think the Pirates are right behind Indians and D-rays as teams on the rise.
