The Phillies Are Kind of a Big Deal

A couple days ago, Keith Law released his organizational farm system rankings. As you may recall, our Phillies ranked 5th in the league. Now Keith Law has released his Top Prospects for 2011 and the Phils have managed to place 5 in the top 100:

Domonic Brown, OF (#3 overall)
Jon Singleton, 1B/OF (#27 overall)
Jarred Cosart, RHP (#34 overall)
Brody Colvin, RHP (#76 overall)
Trevor May, RHP (#93 overall)

It's a good time to be a Phillies fan and it looks like it'll continue to be for quite some time. I don't think I could sum this up better than our own Wetz did a couple days ago. Take it away Wednesday afternoon Wetz:

"Despite not spending the amount of money other teams do on prospects, and despite trading for every team's ace, the Phillies farm system is loaded. Yes, most of the talent is in Single A, but that means they should be ready by about 2013...right when we'll need them."
