Marlins: Still thin on arms, but Florida's bats, led by OF Mike Stanton, still impress.
Last season the Marlins were in a virtual tie for first. Now the farm system has slipped down to number 8. There are a few reasons for this, due to circumstances the Marlins brought up some young pitchers and frankly most had haphazard performances, which is very common for the move to the majors. I wouldn't read much into the drop, but it is true the Fish are a little light on arms in the minors. But given the team's history, that won't last long. Or at least I hope not.
