So, we should probably start talking about how the White Sox system stacks up against the other historically good farm systems.

The gold standard is still the Royals a few years back right?

Because I want to post a gif, injury history is the only reason why Chris Flexen is not currently a top 100 prospect. He is #good.

I don't know how this works yet.

Probably. Or vintage Rays.

And I don't think you can call the White Sox historic just because they grabbed the Yankees 4th and 10000000th best prospects tbf.

It's either the Royals or the Cubs, IMO.  Rays couldn't really touch those 2.  Royals had a more well-rounded farm system, as they actually had some pitchers.  But the Cubs had the highest concentration of top 25 prospects and overall number of prospects.  But the White Sox are getting up there, depending on how well you like their pitchers (I personally don't love them).

 

Moncada/Jimenez/Robert/Rutherford/Kopech/Cease/Hansen/Giolito/Lopez/Dunning/Adams/Fulmer (think he can still be a good reliever)/Burger

 

I'm probably forgetting somebody, but the upside there is pretty ridiculous.

Pitching prospects will kill me.

Kyle Lewis, working his way back from tearing ACL, MCL, and LCL last year and banging his knee in the wall in his second game back hit his first HR for High A. Really hasn't missed a beat and the speed isn't lost so it seems.

Well, here's the new reason why Flexen isn't a top 100 prospect.

I've long been somewhat of a Dominic Smith hater but he just hit his 7th homer of July. 9 doubles this month too with only a 6:10 BB:K ratio.
