Sickels evaluates the O's farm system

  1. Matt Wieters, C, Grade A-
  2. Troy Patton, LHP, Grade B+ (I like him more than I should perhaps)
  3. Radhames Liz, RHP, Grade B (Grade A arm, Grade C command)
  4. Bill Rowell, 3B, Grade B
  5. Nolan Reimold, OF, Grade B-
  6. Garrett Olson, LHP, Grade B-
  7. Jake Arrieta, RHP, Grade B-
  8. Chorye Spoone, RHP, Grade B-
  9. Jim Hoey, RHP, Grade B-
  10. Pedro Beato, RHP, Grade B-
  11. Tim Bascom, RHP, Grade B-
  12. Brandon Erbe, RHP, Grade C+ (something weird here, hidden injury perhaps?)
  13. Brandon Snyder, 1B, Grade C+ (numbers don't match propaganda)
  14. Mike Costanzo, 3B, Grade C+
  15. Scott Moore, 3B, Grade C+
  16. Randor Bierd, RHP, Grade C+
  17. Bradley Bergesen, RHP, Grade C+
  18. Bob McCrory, RHP, Grade C (I don't like him as much as some people do. Command worries me.)
  19. David Hernandez, RHP, Grade C (sleeper potential is high though)
  20. Jeff Fiorentino, OF, Grade C (looks like a solid fourth outfielder)

--------

The dropoff of Erbe really sucks.  Basically, the O's system has some decent depth but no real blue chippers except for Wieters who hasn't played any pro ball yet except for the AFL.  I wish John would have done the O's last because the farm system may drastically change after Bedard and Roberts are traded.
