Miami Marlins: Top prospects report

The Marlins have traded a fair amount of minor-league talent for major-league pitching in the last year or so, including the January move that sent their No. 2 prospect at the time, Luis Castillo, to Cincinnati to acquire Dan Straily, along with two other prospects who would have been in their top 15. The deal leaves them with one of the weakest systems in baseball, as their recent drafts haven't been productive and their international scouting department has never been given the cash to sign any premium Latin talent. Even though the major-league roster is young, I don't see how this system keeps the Marlins competitive in the near- or long-term.
