Comparing the AL East Farm Systems - Fangraphs’ Take So Far

Would you rather have the Tampa farm system or the Yankees bank account?

Bank accounts are forever.   Farm system rankings come and go.   That said, Tampa is in a nice spot with a very good current team and a lot of talent on the way.  They should be a contender for the foreseeable future.

A farm system like this one coupled with their intelligence could last this team for years and years..it leads to deals that lead to more  deals, etc...

Money gives you more margin for error but usually spending money leads to mistakes.

Assuming a team with money doesn't hire their brain trust away again.

And how much has that hurt them?

Didn't they have a downturn that coincided with the first exodus?  With those leaving getting rings while the Rays don't have one?

They already were in the downturn (77-85) when Friedman and Maddon departed.

And they recovered pretty quickly.

Overall, Fangraphs has evaluated 12 farm systems so far, and the Orioles rank 5th in that group:

TBR $558 mm (62 players)

MIN $314.5 mm (39)

PIT $263.5 mm (51)

CWS $232 mm (34)

BAL $230.5 mm (45)

If Akin (45 FV P = $4 mm) is added in, we squeak past the White Sox.   

Still watching the Fangraphs evaluations roll in.   Right now the O’s rank 8th of 18, with Detroit ($360 mm, 42 players), Arizona ($300 mm, 46 players) and Atlanta ($256.5 mm, 30 players) ranked ahead of us in addition to the ones listed above.   Among the 12 teams still to be evaluated, there are three that were ahead of us last year (San Diego, Seattle and Miami) and I’m guessing they will remain ahead of us.    So, we could end up ranked about 11th.   Decent but not as high as other rankings.   

One thing about Fangraphs is they weight the top end talent extremely highly.   That’s how a system like Atlanta’s that has only 30 prospects ranked 35+ or higher beats our system which has 45 such prospects.

    • No wonder you liked Bedard. Best media Bedard exchange ever: Bedard:  Okay, I'm only answering three questions. Media member:  Why only three? Bedard:  That's one. Means is off to a good start this year but I'd like to see him put together a stretch of 6 innings+ games.  Right now he's got two 7 inning starts that sandwich a 4.2 and a 5.0 inning start.  He didn't have his best stuff in either start but he was able to battle, I will give him credit there.  I'm not saying he needs to go 7 innings of shutout ball each time out but I think he's gotta get past the 5th each time out if we want to look at him as an ace.  IMO he's able to give you a gem each time out, but he's also able to give you a 4 or 5 inning start with an escalated pitch count.
    • PFF Brown 76.5 vs AV 74.6. There is the age difference but he also had to pass protect a ton more due to the Steelers pass happy offense and running issues. For 1 or 2 years your getting a pretty comparable player.

    • Just one of Jack Whites early bands.  
    • No, I’ve probably said crazier. I didn’t say it wouldn’t improve, I said I doubt it will, and i said that even if it gets back to his career 89 WRC, it won’t compensate for his defense. That’s what I said. And that’s not crazy.  
    • I like him too. And he won’t be traded unless he nets a huge return, but I think he’s going to be increasingly valuable.
    • Zero chance he gets that.  He isn’t that good and it’s late in the offseason..guys signing now are lucky to get much more than 3M.
