I am now working on the Washington Nationals Top 20 prospect list, to be followed by the Los Angeles Angels, the Pittsburgh Pirates, the New York Mets, and the Chicago White Sox.
Use this thread to discuss the Angels farm system. As always, feel free to point out sleepers or prospects you feel are overlooked. How do you think this system looks beyond phenom Mike Trout? Is Trout ready to play in 2012? My initial impression from brief scanning is that the system has thinned out due to trades and graduations, and that some of their toolsy bets in recent drafts aren't looking so hot right now.
If you took over this team tomorrow, what would be your plan for both the major league roster now that Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson are on board, and what do you do to improve the minor league organization? What, if anything, would you do differently in upcoming drafts, especially considering the potential impact of the new CBA on amateur acquisitions?
