Simon’s method, which determines farm system status by awarding 100 points for the No. 1 prospect on the top 100, 99 points for the No. 2 prospect, etc., says the Yankees have the best farm system in the game per MLB.com’s rankings. There are no guarantees with prospects and Simon’s method isn’t perfect. (Prospect value isn’t linear.) We all know that. History has shown a great farm system tends to result in better MLB teams in subsequent years though, and boy do I like the sound of that.
Anyway, this is tonight’s open thread. The Knicks, Islanders, and Devils are all in action tonight, and there are some college basketball games on the schedule as well. Talk about those games, Simon’s study, or anything else here as long as it’s not religion or politics.
