In his chat on espn.com today somebody asked Keith Law about the Giants farm system:
Kenny (Sacramento): After the last 2 drafts, which appeared to be solid, where would you rank the Giants farm system?
Keith Law: Assuming they get these guys signed, which I assume they will, they're probably top five.
Now this is only one guy's opinion, and shouldn't be taken as gospel, but isn't it amazing that in just a couple of years the Giants have gone from what was universally recognized as one of the worst systems in baseball to one that can even be considered close to the top five? Even more impressive considering the first rounder from 2006 isn't part of the system because he has already graduated.
