Keith Law ranks Reds minor league system 26th


"26. Cincinnati Reds: It's hard to graduate Joey Votto, Jay Bruce and Johnny Cueto from your system in one year and not drop toward the bottom of these rankings. The poor first full season from 2007 first-rounder Devin Mesoraco doesn't help." 26th? As a team that made two of the largest international signings of the year last year in Duran and Y-Rod, how the Reds are behind teams like the Angels, Diamondbacks, and Yankees (!) is beyond me. Yonder, Stubbs, Frazier, and Valaika don't count for anything? Are there really 25 teams with better farm systems than ours?
