While things in the Bigs are only looking good for half of the baseball teams in Chicago, both teams can say their farm systems are healthier than your average franchise. More than a tenth of the prospects on MLB.com’s recently released Top 100 list come from either the Cubs or Sox minor league systems.
Of course, there is very little chance all eleven prospects (six from the Sox, five from the Cubs) pan out and become every day players but having that many spins of the wheel can’t hurt. Here is the full list of players for each team:
I’m fully expecting some White Sox fans to call in to The Score tomorrow freaking out about Moncada not being #1. Should be a good day. One other thing to note is that Gleybar Torres, the prospect traded by the Cubs in exchange for Aroldis Chapman, is up to #3 on the list. I’ll let you form your own opinions about that trade after Torres is being compared to Jeter in New York.
