Keith Law Posts His Organizational Rankings

Earlier today I posted Frankie Piliere's rankings where the Yankees came in at number 15. Today, Keith Law posted his rankings and it's safe to say he wasn't as impressed with the Yankees system, which he ranked at number 25.
Lost picks and trades depleted the system; they traded two guys currently in the top 100. After Jesus Montero, the next impact guys are probably Slade Heathcott and Gary Sanchez, with three pro games combined to date, while their highest-ceiling arm, Andrew Brackman, struggled with command in his first full year back from Tommy John surgery.
Law had the Rangers (1), Red Sox (2), Rays (3), Indians (4) and Braves (5) as his top five. He had the Mets at 15.

I can't really argue with what Law said about the Yanks, although he didn't mention all the good arms at the lower levels, or guys like Austin Romine and Zach McAllister. Still, I can't help but question Law's rankings when I see where he put the Red Sox.
