    2006 v 2005 Reds minor league system comparison

    2006 v 2005 Reds minor league system comparison
    In the past, one of the big hits on the Reds farm system was that their farm teams were losing more than winning, at many different levels. One way to compare overall strength of systems is to look at win-loss records of the various teams. As of 9/7/06, at the end of the minor league regular season, lets look.

    2006 records to date
    AAA Louisville 75-68 (+9 wins)
    AA Chattanooga 81-59 (+28 wins)
    High A Sarasota 66-73 (+1 win)
    A Dayton 67-73 (+7 wins)
    Rookie Billings 51-25 (+8 wins)
    GCL Reds 18-34 (-4 wins)
    2006 Overall 358-332 (+49 wins)

    Last year 2005 records
    AAA Louisville 66-78
    AA Chattanooga 53-83
    High A Sarasota 65-67
    A Dayton 60-79
    Rookie Billings 43-33
    GCL Reds 22-32
    2005 Overall totals 309-372

    So far the Reds farm system's winning percentage has increased overall from .453 last year to .518 so far this year. Last year they were 28th out of 30 MLB systems. They have won 49 more games than last year. That is a nice improvement.

    Why did this occur? Some of the difference has to be attributed to getting rid of rules like taking the first pitch every time, and super strict pitch counts for starters. Some may be better drafting, or moving players through the system more slowly.

    The best improvements were higher in the system, Chatanooga and Louisville... Not Krivsky draft picks in those higher levels, but lots of free agent signings and trade changes.

    I hope this is a good sign of system wide improvement in the future!
