They're No. 2 - in ESPN organizational rankings

21

January

The Rays are second in ESPN's Keith Law's organization rankings based on "the current states of their farm systems,'' with the rankings based on players who minor-leaguers and players who are major-league rookies this season (so for the Rays that would include David Price but not Evan Longoria).

Writes Law: They just keep churning out the prospects, although they'll have a new challenge in 2009: no draft picks in the top 10 -- or even 20. Success with high school pitchers taken after the first round has been a big part of their system's depth, including another wave of kids who spent 2008 in short-season ball. However, their recent efforts in Latin America have yet to yield any significant prospects.

He has the Rangers No. 1 and the A's third.
