I don't subscribe to the all prospect philosophy of Keith Law, but the opposite end of the spectrum is just as nuts.
I agree with this as well. A well run farm system should produce a player of Beckham's caliber about every 3-4 years. He seems like a once in a generation player because, sadly, that has been the rate at which our farm system has produced such players in the past 15 years or so.
