Who Inherited The Better Farm System?

In one of yesterday’s posts, I saw a little debate pop up as to which GM inherited a better farm system between Omar Minaya and Sandy Alderson. In my mind, the perception was that Alderson had a significantly stronger base of prospects to work with than Minaya did, but I decided to see what I could dig […]

The Armchair GM: Is Justin Upton Worth A Look?
