I didn’t see the farm system ranking here. Did anyone else?
The @MLBPipeline midseason prospect re-rank is out & the #STLCards have 6 of MLB's top 100 prospects, led of course by future star Jordan Walker. Read more here about the Cardinals top 30 prospects & where their farm system ranks in all of baseball. Story: https://t.co/F4LNm3CuwU
Nope, the only thing resembling a system ranking I saw was the “weighed ranking” where the Cards weren’t mentioned. Most of the Cardinals prospects were in the 80-100 range, with the exception of Walker and Winn.
Dont follow their arrival time logic. Hence is 3 years younger, 2 levels lower, ranked lower, but hás the same arrival year as Graceffo? I also cant see Willis arriving the same year as Hjerpe or his draft counterparts. Meijia in 2028 assumes only 1 levels a year for 6 years which would be extremely tarde and long for a top 10 prospect.
Sometimes I think prospects, mostly pitchers, are babied too much. Unless a pitcher is recovering from injury, and is very successful, he should be challenged at the next level higher. Maybe the brass is correctly handling Hence, but IMO, he should be in Peoria now.
I guess teams view young prospects as investments now. And some of the young kids I mentioned could have been dealing with a minor injury. I would like to have seen a less restrictive pitch count and/or innings limit for Hence and Willis, and a quicker promotion for Paniaugua.
