Best Farm System of the Decade?

 

Minor League baseball is effectively done for the 00's decade, and while decades are arbitrary lengths of time, I thought it would be an interesting discussion to see which teams have grown the most talent from 2000-2009.  I made a quick list for the Braves, since that's the franchise I know best, but I'd like to see how that stacks up against the other 29 teams.
