The San Francisco Giants have won two of the last three World Series, so there are not a lot of bad things that can be said about this franchise right now. 

In fact, the few flaws the franchise has had over the last handful of years all get wiped away when one looks deep into AT&T Park and sees those two championship flags flying high overhead. 

Even looking at their farm system right now, which is not nearly as strong as it used to be thanks to a series of trades over the last three years, general manager Brian Sabean can't be blamed for doing what he has done because the results on the field have been so great. 

Granted, some of those trades have not paid off. Sending Zack Wheeler to the Mets for Carlos Beltran in 2011 looks like it will turn out to be a disastrous deal, but in the context of when it was made, it was understandable. 

The farm system is going through a rebuilding process, though the big league team is still strong enough on paper to be one of the best in the National League. The margin for error is small, though, because reinforcements are not on the way this season. 

Here is a full look at the Giants' farm system, top prospects, breakout candidates and potential big league contributors in 2013.
