Just got my copy of the BP Prospects 2004 handbook.

Here is their minor leauge system rankings:

1. Milwaukee Brewers - If fans can wait a little bit longer and Brewers can stay the course, major help is on the way.

2. Los Angeles Dodgers - Ownership change has front office in flux, but the farm is loaded with high-ceiling talent.

3. Anaheim Angels - Former scouting director Donny Rowland's drafts will be appreciated long after his departure.

4. Atlanta Braves - It's no accident that Braves' run of high rankings has coincided with division titles.

5. Minnesota Twins - Deep system will graduate its best player, Minor League player of the year, Joe Mauer.

6. Cleveland Indians - Even after sending numerous players to the big leagues last year, system still has depth.

7. Chicago Cubs - Big league success came sooner than expected, and now young talent will build on it.

8. Toronto Blue Jays - Competing on a budget in the American League East is easier with this kind of talent.

9. Tampa Bay Devil Rays - Premium prospects at the top of the organization take a back seat to no one.

10. New York Mets - Signing of Kaz Matsui highlights a system on the upswing.

11. Pittsburgh Pirates
12. Seattle Mariners
13. Arizona Diamondbacks
