This isn't really a fanpost. It is an idea/request for someone with the know-how and interest to write a real post.
So, remember when our system was terrible? I'd like to know two things: a) how terrible was it compared to the similarly ranked system of today, would Jimmy Journel, for instance, be a top 5 prospect in the worst system of today. And b) how good is our system compared to the similarly ranked system from back when we were at the bottom. Where would Alex Reyes slot in the Cleveland Indians top 10 in 2003?
And a third thing: is there more talent in the the total minor league pool than there was 10 years ago, are all systems more or less better than they used to be? or is it about the same?
Thanks to anyone who takes this on.
