Sabremetrics are for more than just scouting. Does anyone think if Bryce Harper where in the White Sox farm system, he'd be an up and coming superstar? Or, more likely, he'd be on the fast track to burning out of baseball by the time he's 30? He'd probably still be in Birmingham, hitting .220 while striking out 45% of his PA's.
Silly you is right. The Nationals minor leagues are ranked fairly low (21 by Keith Law) and you posted this:

Yeah, and look at the results... You're talking about a team that won 95 games last year and probably has the most enviable collection of under-25 talent assembled... maybe ever?

The Nationals currently have 4 players on their roster under 25. The two no brainers I mentioned and the incomparable Steve Lombardozzi and Anthony Rendon.
