I am hard at work on the Milwaukee Brewers Top 20 list. The next team in the queue is the Texas Rangers, followed by the Philadelphia Phillies, the Detroit Tigers, and the Arizona Diamondbacks. I have altered the schedule from what was previously posted because I want the World Series teams covered.
Use this thread to discuss the Cardinals farm system. As usual, point out any sleepers that you like. What do you think about their philosophy in recent drafts? To me, it looks like the system has solid role players on the way up, and impressive pitching prospects like Shelby Miller, Carlos Martinez, and Tyrell Jenkins give long-term hope to the pitching staff. Could they use more hitting prospects?
