OK I have thought about this for awhile now and am ready to take the heat for finally speaking up...
The Reds are constantly harped on for having a bad farm system yet just this year we have brought up Coffey, EdE and the Lizard all from a "bad" farm system.
Now what got me thinking about this was the Yanks who are regularly criticized for their farm system have brought up a number of players the last couple of years including Wang, Cabreara and Cano who have been very good while their farm system is said to be barren. What is up with these ranking publications?
(By the way the teams with the great farm systems...Dodgers, Angels, Rays, Indians...they are all looking up at the Reds this year.)
