There's no denying that the Giants have had plenty of success over the past few years, and much of that has been due to home-grown players like Buster Posey (Thank you, draft gods) Tim Lincecum, and Matt Cain. So it's a bit odd to see the system come to this point, as it now sits as one of the worst systems in all of the National League due in large part to some questionable (at best) draft picks and some questionable (again at best) trades. There are some intriguing arms, but few are guaranteed to be starters at the next level and all but the top two profile as back-end guys. There's very little here in terms of offensive firepower, and few teams have less depth in the outfield. There's a lot to like about being a fan of San Francisco right now, but the farm system is not one of them...
