Who's Fantasy Farm system would you take?

Postby Bobbleheadrusty » Sun May 24, 2009 9:04 am

If you could have one teams farm system for your fantasy team who would it be?

My thoughts

1. Texas - Easily the deepest group, could see 8-10 guys be fantasy starters in the next couple years. Holland could develop into a stud, Feliz is a wild card, as he could be a good starter or a great closer. Smoak may be the best 1B in the minors, Andrus is an average SS at worst. Teagarden is filler, but Ramirez is my #2 catcher in the minors. Bourbon/Beltre are promising OFs and there are a crapload of #3ish pitchers.

2. Baltimore - What I call the Wieters factor, but you get bonus points for having the best guy. The #1 overall minor league prospect, at a scarce position (especially this year), is almost worth it on his own. Add in some potential top of the rotation guys in Tillman, Matusz and Arrietta and its a legit system. Also like Erbe/Henderson/Patton to develop. Position prospects are scarce, but Reimold could develop into a decent LF/DH.

3. Tampa Bay - #1 Arm in Price gives them a jump, Davis/Hellickson/McGee are all B to B+ pitchers as well. Jennings and Beckham are the only top flight position guys, but both could be elite eventually. Dont like anyone other hitters, though Brignac could rebound.

4. Oakland - You've got a complete potential fantasy rotation in Anderson, Cahill, Ynoa, Gonzales. Cunningham is a decent to great outfielder, and out of Weeks/Cardenas you should get a legit 2b. Carter/Doolittle should field the 1B/DH role for a while, though I dont see either as elite.

5. Atlanta - Hanson is the only arm I like to be a future ace in the system, but Schafer/Heyward are the best outfield duo in the minors, Freeman is, if possible, overlooked at 1B and there are a couple of projectable LHPs

I'd say Texas and Oakland are top 2, just because how deep their systems are right now.
Behind them, I'd probably have Florida and Atlanta. Mat Latos - Sponsored by the Fantasy Baseball Cafe!
