Keith Law on ESPN.com Insider ranks the farm systems

and to say the least, ours is still ranked as hurting pretty bad.

If you have Insider, here's a link:

The overall lowdown of the article:  Tampa Bay is #1, having a crapload of talent, even though most of the really high ceilinged players are in A or AA ball.  Milwaukee is the best in the NL Central, ranked 9th, the Cubs 19th, with only Felix Pie as a piece that's anywhere near major league ready, and then the good news:

We're better than Philadelphia and San Diego.

The Cardinals farm system ranks at 28th out of the 30 major league teams in Law's analysis.  HE does however say Rasmus, with a good year in AA would likely be a top 10 to 15 prospect across the board.

In about two weeks, Baseball America also has a write-up on the Cardinals farm system, where they rate the top 10 prospects in their system.  That article is set to debut on February 9th.
