  1. Are the teams placed in a particular order?

  2. Get to the Jays already!!

    Great job on these.

  3. Doesn’t the numbers in reverse order give it away?

    Comment by Mike D — February 18, 2011 @ 4:32 pm

  4. Sorry, meant how were they ranked.

    Comment by BrianA — February 18, 2011 @ 4:34 pm

  5. How Would you revise it after the Greinke and A.Gon trades? Does Milwaukee have the worst system in baseball?

    Comment by ICEYhawtSTUNNAZ — February 18, 2011 @ 4:40 pm

  6. Boston 11th, and Philly and NYY in the top 10. The rich get richer, I suppose.

  7. Philly doesn’t even spend huge amounts of money on the draft. They’ve traded a number of prospects on other team’s lists for Lee, Halladay, and Oswalt. And their system is much better than it was a few years ago. It’s sort of baffling. They’ve really done well on late round $100k-$300k bonus kind of draft picks.

  8. Boston ahead of Cleveland and Seattle? Uh, no.

    Comment by Ryan — February 18, 2011 @ 6:26 pm

  9. So much for the Phillies draining their farm system for these pitchers…

    Comment by Nick — February 18, 2011 @ 6:34 pm

  10. Anthony Rizzo is a top 25 prospect and should bring the Padres up higher than Boston

    Comment by Padresfan — February 18, 2011 @ 6:53 pm

  11. In what universe is Anthony Rizzo a top 25 prospect? Borderline top 50.

    Comment by Jesse — February 18, 2011 @ 7:00 pm

  12. agreed other than the fact that it would mean they were not top 10

    Comment by TdotStandup — February 18, 2011 @ 8:11 pm

  13. The difference between a prospect being 20th and 60th can come down to what to value, which scouts you believe, etc. I wouldn’t get too worked up about it.

  14. Texas in the top 10 after trading Smoak and many other prospects plus losing Feliz’s eligibility…

    I think people tend to underestimate the depth of the Texas system last year when it was ranked #1.

    Comment by laxtonto — February 19, 2011 @ 1:00 am

  15. Agreed. I’m not as high on their farm system as a lot of people, with most of their prospects being down at lower levels, but they really have done well to build a solid system that has handed them talent to trade and perhaps also build with.

    Comment by Bronnt — February 19, 2011 @ 2:05 am

  16. How can you underestimate something ranked #1? Should they be #1 with a star and smiley face?

    Comment by Jeff in So. Indiana — February 19, 2011 @ 7:29 am

  17. According to the organization rankings. Prior to the Greinke trade, the White Sox were the worst organization.

    Comment by hk — February 19, 2011 @ 8:13 am

  18. It is pretty amazing, made even more so by the fact that they traded Cliff Lee to SEA to “re-stock the farm system” and none of the guys that they got from SEA are in their top 10 prospects now.

    Comment by hk — February 19, 2011 @ 8:16 am

  19. Yeah, the Yanks buy free agents AND draft picks. What jerks.

    Comment by Anon — February 19, 2011 @ 3:01 pm

  20. Yep. So imagine how stocked their system would be if Amaro was a competent GM and wasn’t relying on the groundwork of his predecessor and his scouting team to make him look good.

    Comment by Ari — February 19, 2011 @ 3:47 pm

  21. 3. Atlanta Braves
    2. Tampa Bay Rays
    1. Kansas City Royals

    Sound about right?

    Also, where would the Cubs rank now that they’ve sent a pretty decent package to Tampa for Garza?

    Comment by Undocorkscrew — February 19, 2011 @ 4:27 pm

  22. when are the org rankings?

    Comment by Eric — February 19, 2011 @ 6:39 pm

  23. Pretty close on the Top 3 organizations…

    Comment by Marc Hulet — February 19, 2011 @ 7:00 pm

  24. I must say, Marc, that it’s strangely gratifying to see a ranking list on FanGraphs that doesn’t have Seattle ranked sixth.

    Seriously, thanks for doing these.

    Comment by Bad Bill — February 20, 2011 @ 12:17 am

  25. Yankees in the top 10? I love it.

    Cashman has barely been getting any credit for the farm he’s built up since he’d been given the reigns in 2007.

    Comment by Chops — February 20, 2011 @ 1:48 pm

  26. It could be argued that Gillies is the 9th or 10th best prospect in the system. The top 6 is fairly set (Brown, Singleton, Calvin, Cosart, May, and Valle), but after that its really a lot of upside, toolsy guys. Really how can you rank Jiwan James, Gillies, Domingo Santana, and Aaron Altherr in some sort of logical order, when they are all young, athletic and unproven?

    Comment by DavidCEisen — February 20, 2011 @ 6:23 pm

  27. Six months ago this comment would have been old. Now its just sad.

    Comment by DavidCEisen — February 20, 2011 @ 6:25 pm

  28. Darn media, always picking on the Yankees.

    Comment by DavidCEisen — February 20, 2011 @ 6:25 pm

  29. That’s true. But it still doesn’t make Rizzo a top 25 prospect.

    Comment by Steve — February 20, 2011 @ 8:47 pm

  30. Those poor Yankees never get any recognition for anything, do they?

  32. I think you are spot on with the top 3.

    Comment by johan — February 22, 2011 @ 1:03 am

  33. you guys probably have Atlanta and Tampa Bay switched. Im guessing this.

    1. Kansas City
    2. Atlanta
    3. Tampa Bay
    4. Toronto
    5. Yankees
    6. Cincinnati
    7. Philadelphia
    8. Texas
    9. LA Angels
    10. Arizona Diamondbacks? (which is way out of whack if you ask me, but we all have our opinions of things)

    Comment by johan — February 22, 2011 @ 1:07 am

  34. Seattle has a good farm system. They wouldn’t be out of place in the back half of a top 10. Lot of uspide in their system, more so than most.

    Comment by johan — February 22, 2011 @ 1:09 am

  35. Phillies just have a lot of depth, and they do a good job of getting value in later rounds in the draft. I give them credit. Colvin was pretty well known but most teams felt they couldn’t sign him. Phillies did it anyway.

    Comment by johan — February 22, 2011 @ 1:12 am

  36. I think so. Their best prospect is Mark Rogers, a hard throwing righty who may not even stick as a starter and has injury concerns.

    Comment by johan — February 22, 2011 @ 1:14 am

  37. the cubs and the red sox should probably move down because while the lists are correct, their 11 and 19 seeds where probably made before the two trades they made with padres and rays respectivley.
