Re: The Reds draft better than most
Having great drafts and strong farm systems gives one hope for the future...but the only thing that matters is how the players are utilized to create a stronger Reds team at GAB.
1.) Projectability of the prospects to excel at the major league level.
2.) Tradeability or the ability to trade with other teams (meaning the players have skill sets other teams want) to acquire key players needed at GAB...
3.) Having prospects that fill holes in the Reds lineup in a timely fashion (See SS here)
4.) Depth to overcome injuries on the major league team
are the most important attributes of a minor league system IMHO.
Does this ranking get to any of those issues?
If not, Is there any system that does measure the real value of a farm system to their organization?
