Minor League System Rankings (based on Sickels rankings)

Using a system of points thought up by Mekonsrock in the Tampa Bay prospect ranking, I've gone through and calculated the 'points' that each system has based on Sickels' rankings


A = 10 points

A- = 8 points

B+ = 6 points

B = 3 points

B- = 2 points

C+ = 1 point

Based on those point values, here is the current list of farm systems, assigned by points.

  1. St. Louis – 68
  2. Seattle - 65
  3. Tampa Bay – 62
  4. Texas – 61
  5. Houston – 61
  6. Pittsburgh – 61
  7. Minnesota – 60 (Meyer – B+, Sickels ranking; May – B, based on preliminary Top 50)
  8. New York NL – 59
  9. San Diego - 58
  10. Chicago NL – 58
  11. Boston - 56
  12. Miami – 55
  13. Arizona – 48
  14. Colorado - 44
  15. Cincinnati - 43
  16. San Francisco – 42
  17. New York AL – 42
  18. Philadelphia – 40
  19. Kansas City – 38
  20. Milwaukee - 37
  21. Los Angeles NL - 36
  22. Atlanta – 36
  23. Baltimore – 36
  24. Cleveland – 35
  25. Toronto – 35
  26. Oakland – 34
  27. Washington – 33
  28. Detroit – 26
  29. Los Angeles AL - 24
  30. Chicago AL – 23

Be warned, I tried to figure in all the prospect trades that hadn't been updated in the Top 20 posts, but I may have missed some. If you want to go through and check, please feel free.
