Re: Where does REDS farm system rank in overall talent in MLB? / Your Top 10 list?
I think it's pretty well established that the Royals are #1. Tampa Bay is still up there. Minnesota and Seattle also come to mind. I think Toronto has taken some big steps forward but I'm not sure they're up there yet. I'd be very curious to see who all you have above the Reds, Doug. The Royals are the only team that seems to be without a doubt a stronger organization.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
