We should look quite epic in 2015. Just need to find some more young arms.

Cubs Have a Top 5 System?
Posted 13 June 2013 - 08:02 PM
i almost spit out my coffee when i saw this. nice to see that things really are changing.
Barring a blockbuster trade or two this offseason, if the Cubs do not have the #1 farm system this time next year, I'm gonna quit.
I think you're quitting.
The Twins farm system is stacked (like the Cubs), and (like the Cubs) it features some of the best talent in the lower levels. I don't think the Twins are going to fall due to graduating talent any time soon.
But that system is a little better balanced than Chicago. They are somewhat better off in the pitching department, and I think that balance will probably be enough to keep them ranked very, very highly. Arguable higher than the Cubs (if only just).
And I think the Twins are likely to do a little selling of their own in July. They could also get a little richer before this time next year.
It may be close between the two, but even though the Cubs probably have the best group of hitting talent in the minors, the Twins probably will have the slightly better farm system thanks to the better balance of pitching.
