Isn't this just the winning percentage of the minor league teams, not their "rating" in terms of talent or big league potential?

This doesn't bother me in the least, we had a lot of veterans playing at Charlotte, and they had a very good team record, but almost none of the players there were able to contribute to the big league club.

It's nice to develop a winning attitude in players in Rookie and A-ball, especially when they play for a "losing" big league team like the Royals...but wins and losses are nowhere close to "development" in the overall scheme of things.

Relax.

I think we all knew that our farm system was depleted last year and it really did show, especially at the lower levels. But 2007 will be a different story, the rotations at Charlotte and Birmingham are stacked and that should trickle down to the lower levels as some deserving guys will probably be stuck.

Uhh, they know that Lumsden's in KC now, right?

Right?

Last is Texas. And the Sox just traded the guy we thought was supposed to be our No. 5 starter for their best prospect. Hopefully, that list does not mean a thing.

That list, if I'm reading correctly, is based on stats and stats only. It in no way judges players on their talent or perceived ceiling. I'm not too concerned considering minor league ballparks come in all shapes and sizes, thus skewing numbers.
