Beyond Biddle, its a bunch of unknowns. As we learn more about the top names in the Phillies minor league system thanks to Jay Floyd’s Top 25 Prospect countdown, Keith Law goes and kills the mood. That’s because ESPN’s minor league insider has ranked his farm systems 1-30 and does not look favorably upon the Phillies. Law ranks the Phillies farm 27th of 30 major league teams, and says: Their highest-ranked prospect on my top 100 (no team was shut out entirely) is the lowest of any team’s highest-ranked prospect. They do, however, have a number of intriguing, high-risk guys from low-A on down, especially on the pitching side. That one prospect in his Top 100 is Philly native Jesse Biddle. Beyond that, Law says there’s some intrigue, but at lower levels. Some names have burst onto the scene, like Adam Morgan, Ethan Martin, etc., but they don’t have the background of some of the other prospects that litter the top teams. Thus far, Jay Floyd is down #17 in his Top 25, which you can check out right here.

  • Mr. Law, ranking MLB farm systems is kind of senseless. In 2005, the Phillies supposedly had one of the the worst farm systems also, and 3 years later it won the World Series for us.
