Re: John Sickels farm system rankings
This is another list that tells Reds fans what we already know about our farm system; a lot of depth with minimal elite type players. A couple things though that I found odd...
Alonso is only a B+? I was under the assumption he was more highly regarded than that.
Also I think the toolshed that is Chapman would have had a higher value than an A-.
Not every team has elite (and still incredibly young) international prospects. This hurts the Reds total value all things considered. Sickels can say that Yorman is number 245 for positional players all he wants, but it will not cause me to give his list anymore credit...
Is Wood the only B graded pitcher?
