…. On and on

John Sickels has a review of the Giants farm system that illustrates the issues we’ve been pounding to death here:

…. The Giants in a Sentence: The Giants have some interesting relief arms after Lincecum and Sanchez, but have shown little ability to develop hitters with plate discipline or plus offensive potential.

Looking through his list, you can see there is little to be excited about; a couple of pitchers that could turn out to be OK, and pretty much the same kind of crap hitters we’ve been seeing for the last several seasons. The Giants have but one A prospect, Lincecum, and all the rest are essentially Jason Ellison/Marvin Benard types; which is to say, marginal.

Anyway, it’s worth a peek.
