A good farm system is the key to having years upon years of contending teams. Sounds simple, right?  Well, it is more difficult than most think, just ask the Pirates and Royals of years past. They always had high draft picks and solid prospects, but traded them away for more prospects and the vicious cycle begins.

The Pirates are finally hanging on to their homegrown talent and look where they are this year. Perhaps the light came on for ownership or perhaps Clint Hurdle pinned their GM up against the wall and told him to keep the talent.  Either way, the Pirates are on their way up for the first time in 20 years.

The Cardinals have been in the hunt every year since 2000, thanks in large part to some homegrown talent.
