Minor league stats/wins do not really equate to MLB success. Its all about potential and talent. The reality is is that we've traded somewhere around 10 good prospects away in the past few years that has pretty much depleted our system. Whether or not we are dead last or 25th doesnt really matter, we have only a hand full of prospects that have a good future in the MLB. The positive thing is that we have been drafting very well as of late and it could only take a couple of years and good coaching/progression to vault us up to the top of that list.
