More on
this in tomorrow’s Newberg Report, but following Baseball America‘s confirmation last week that it will anoint the
Rangers’ farm system as the best in baseball, ESPN has now done the same. 


In a pair
of features for, Scouts Inc.’s Keith Law has called the Rangers’ minor
league talent the best in the league (“The Rangers have far and away the best
farm system in the game right now . . . the wave of arms coming through Texas
over the next five years will give the Rangers the best chance in their history
to advance beyond the first round of the playoffs”) and has included the following
players in his ranking of baseball’s top 100 prospects:


4.  Neftali Feliz, RHP (number two pitcher,
behind Tampa Bay lefthander David Price)


15.  Justin Smoak, 1B (number two first baseman, behind
Boston’s Lars


21.  Derek Holland, LHP (number four lefthander)


37.  Martin Perez, LHP ((Pedro Alvarez, the second
overall pick in the 2008 draft, is number 38)


39.  Elvis Andrus, SS (number four shortstop)


64.  Michael Main, RHP


70.  Taylor Teagarden, C (number five catcher)
