For teams like the Miami Marlins and the Minnesota Twins, this is probably the closest thing they’re getting to a World Series win in 2013. Baseball America released its annual list of the game’s top 100 prospects on Tuesday.
While Texas Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar grabbed the No. 1 overall spot, in a larger sense the list’s winners are the Twins, Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals, who each had six prospects listed. Teams with five prospects: Arizona Diamondbacks, Boston Red Sox, Houston Astros, Seattle Mariners, Pittsburgh Pirates and Tampa Bay Rays.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Oakland Athletics, San Francisco Giants, Los Angeles Angels, Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago White Sox each had only one player make the top 100.

People can jump to a lot of conclusions with those numbers (and you probably will in the comments), but this doesn’t mean the Giants are going to be horrible in a couple years more than it means the Marlins will be great. It means some teams have more young “talent” than other — talent that could come to fruition, get traded or fizzle out.
