We had possibly the worst farm system in the majors when Huntington took over--now we have an elite prospect (Andrew McCutchen) reaching the majors, with another prospect in the system (Alvarez) who is ranked in the top five prospects in the majors.

We actually have young, talented pitchers (Maholm, Duke, Morton, Ohlendorf--though I'm not a fan)--not Ryan Vogelsongs and John Van Benschotens.

For the first time since 1997, it seems like there is hope.
HAHA!!! Ryan Vogelsong, i havent heard that name in a while.

btw, GREAT POST!!
