Chicago Cubs: This is not a bottom three system

I will have to respectfully disagree with Keith Law here in ranking the Cubs 28th out of 30 MLB teams regarding their farm system. Never have I believed Chicago has a top-rated system or even a middle of the pack system in these last few years, but the talent they have says more than where they are currently ranked.

Sure, it is not fun to look back and see the Toronto Blue Jays nab fireballer Nate Pearson, who is turning heads in camp this spring, between the Little and Lange picks, but we move on. The Cubs also had terrible luck with Serrano and the debacle of his contract.

Next. How will Steven Souza factor into the outfield picture?. dark

Still, this team has brought in some solid talent in the past few seasons and is primed to sign a top-of-the-line international prospect this summer. Please do not lose hope, my dear diehards. It will get better for both the club and the fans, and the 2020s should be a fun time for this team.
