I don't think our farm system is weak, but I do think it could use a bit of work. We used to have one of the best farm systems in the majors, but somewhere along the line Cashman & Co. lost sight of what is important. Player development. Either way, I think we'll have some solid guys who will be ready to pounce when they reach the majors.
