  1. Of the 6 divisions, does this division have the best collection of prospects?

  2. I’d have to think TB/TOR systems alone make the AL east the top division, not even thinking of the NYY plethora of great arms and Jesus Montero/Gary Sanchez.

  3. Can I go ahead and chant overrated at your post? Regarding Montero and Sanchez

  4. Maybe before the trade deadline, but now that Cleveland dumped everyone, KC is really the only system with much talent at all.

  5. You may be right …

  6. Even if NYY prospects are overrated, their system is better than the Tigers, White Sox, and Indians for sure, and possibly even the Twins. KC is really the only above average system in the ALC, and the Twins are really the only average system.

  7. With all the buzz on Cuthbert & Moustakas/Hosmer graduating, does the 18 yo have a shot at being KC’s 2nd top 3B prospect in a row?

  8. That Tigers list is ridiculous. Drew Smyly is EASILY our third best prospect at this point, and Brantly is easily in the top ten, probably 6th or 7th, as well.

  9. Cory, I’m pretty sure this is a review of what was done at the begining of the year, not a re-write based on this year so far…..

  10. Montgomery hasn’t been hurt…where did you get that?

  11. Should have added that Myers WAS hurt; perhaps you were thinking of him?

  12. Excellent Twins list. As someone who watches/follows them very closely, even I have difficulty making a top 10 list.

  13. Wonder where Addison Reed would stand on the Sox list today. Relief pitcher, but in a weak farm system and with the season he’s had? Gotta be pretty high.

  14. Montgomery was hurt last year and I’m not so sure he’s been 100% even though he’s been pitching regularly.

    And, yes, the whole “review” should be a tip off that these lists are not current.

  15. You realize these were done at the beginning of the year, right?

  16. Most impressive of anything in this write-up is probably the fact that someone has a near-2:1 K/BB with a BB/9 of 7.65!

  17. uggh… potential Tommy John surgery for the Twins top guy Kyle Gibson. His K’s/BB’s/GB% numbers were awesome this year through about June in AAA.

  18. Why does the Ubaldo trade mean that the Indians are going “all in” for 2011? I’ve heard other people make the same statement when criticizing the trade — don’t they realize that the Indians have Ubaldo signed at a very low price until 2013? That’s two more year of control after 2011 and nearly all of the Indians’ core players are also under control through at least 2013. So this trade wasn’t just about this year, it was about competing for the next three years.
