Ultimately yes, though the ideal would be producing players who've been brought up through a winning atmosphere.
The two cases that resonate most with me for caring about minor league team records (which shouldn't necessarily matter) are that it generally means you're doing well on the talent end (at least in terms of depth) and that your prospects are being brought along in a strong team concept system. I think it's important to make kids concentrate as much on winning games as they do on advancing their individual skills.
