I think they do fine. They were ranked No. 1 not too long ago. The Cardinals won the World Series and had the top-rated farm system at the same time -- a rare feat, in history. They've been a top 15 for a bit, and Baseball America, over the past five, six years, sees them as a top-third organization. What holds them back is really just a few things
-- They don't draft high, so they don't have the sexy, headliner first-round pick.
-- They produce a quantity of contributors, not necessarily a singular, can't-miss star.
-- Alex Reyes' injuries and Oscar Taveras' death.
Oh, and sanctions from the hacking cost them any picks in the first 100 a few years ago -- and they still climbed in the farm system ratings.
Gorman is going to be the next highly rated prospect from the Cardinals, likely climbing to a spot last visited in the Top 100 by Reyes and Taveras. (They were both top 10, I believe; Reyes was the top pitching prospect at one point in his career.) Wouldn't get worked up over this.
