Keith Law: Brewers have Worst Farm System


YouthofToday

Recommended Posts

"29. Los Angeles Angels

An awful system after years of lost first-round picks and trades to bulk up the major league team, it improved marginally in 2013 with some new arms, but regression from most of the top position player prospects in the system was a huge disappointment.

 

30. Milwaukee Brewers

There may not be a player in this system who projects as an above-average player in the majors; the best bets are all teenagers who played in low Class A or below in 2013, and none is close to a lock to get there.

The system lacks ceiling and it lacks depth beyond reliever candidates and likely fourth outfielders, with nothing in the middle of the diamond and no starting pitching of note."

All of their low draft picks from 2002 to 2008 have graduated to the big leagues. After some success they stopped get the best of the crop. Their first pick in the 2012 draft was 27th, the 2013 draft was 54th. Every subsequent round is that much further down the talent pool.

 

Fielder, Pence (picked 40th round), Weeks, Gallardo, Cain, Braun, Brantley, Bailey, McClendon, LuCroy, Lawrie, not a bad batch of players and yet most are gone. These were the Jack Z guys and the reason he skyrocketed into fame as a scouting director and GM.

The dude is a stud.  Give him time.  He is going to make the Angels pay for tossing him.   He has great velocity because he is so tall and even last year the guy looked like he put on some weight.  I could see this guy becoming very dominate.

 

Loek Van Mil was tall, in fact the tallest in the minors.

 

Doesn't help.

Hellweg just called.  He would appreciate you not change your name to anything related to him.
