I agree, Gammons is not incorrect in this, since we did use plenty of resources on position players over the last few years. I don't have that much faith in their ability to develop position players, but they have the most overall talent out of the farm system.
Just off the top of my head, Johnson, Thompson, Anderson, Hawkins and Zapata (recent Dominican signing) are probably the 5 guys he's thinking of, with Johnson being the only pitcher.
