lol, nobody will answer my question about when our farm system didn't suck, according to the "experts".
Even when we our farm systems werent highly regarded, we still had some top heavy talent waiting in the wings.
Im not saying Crick isnt a quality prospect, but him being at number 1 on our list, and number 76 in Keith Law's top 100...Its safe to say we arent loaded with talent.
The Giants are becoming big spenders, with the stadium debt nearly gone, and the popularity going through the roof, so we wont need to lean as heavily on the farm system for success as much right now.
But, considering weve been winning with guys like Posey, Belt, Crawford, Sandoval, Cain, Lincecum, Bumgarner, Romo, etc., they should realize that success ultimately comes from having alot of homegrown talent.
