Keith Law, the Senior Baseball Writer for ‘The Athletic,’ just released his farm system rankings, and the Chicago Cubs find themselves at the very bottom of the league.

It is fun to see how the best writers and analysts view a team’s farm system. The abjection towards the Chicago Cubs is particularly impressive given the fact that in recent years it has felt the team is moving in the right direction with the talent they acquire.

There is no surprise to fans that the Cubs don’t boast a top of the line pipeline. When we look at teams like the Tampa Bay Rays, the Atlanta Braves, and our friends to the south, the Chicago White Sox, the Cubs do not come close to stacking up, but, again, those teams have a multitude of unique talent growing in their system.

Recently when Baseball America dropped their overall top 100 prospects, the Cubs were lucky enough to have three guys on that list. If we look deeper into the system, however, we can see how there is still a ton of talent, and in doing that, it can give us a gauge into what the future may look like on the north side of Chicago.
