Re: Fan Graph's baseball has Reds as 24th best organization
I'm waiting to hear his argument before passing judgment. He's an Ms fan but he also has a reputation for being fair and impartial and admitting his bias when he's not.
My guess is that the new FO, the bevy of upcoming draft picks this summer and the large amount of resources the Ms have (i.e. money to utilize, international scouting/player development, an already good player development system in shape for the new guard) are a big factor in his view of the Ms going forward. In short, the Ms aren't rebuilding completely from nothing-they've got alot of plusses already in place. Also, the Ms are in a division that may be weaker for the next year or two.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
