Overall Minor League Win %
Last year, Houston's farm system lead the way at .546
I'm not finding 2013 compiled anywhere, but the Twins minor league teams (taking the DSL out of it) are at .551
Here's 2012 for reference:

With Cedar Rapids and Ft. Myers in the playoffs already for their first half wins (and still playing well), and Rochester having an incredible month of July and being in first place this late in the season for the first time in a long time, it's exciting. Will be nice to have more playoff baseball in the system!

Being in the playoffs certainly helps get players ready for the major league playoff pushes and conditions them to win. This also shows that the Twins farm clubs have the talent to win so hopefully some of it will help in the majors.

This is especially positive when combined with the #1 ranked system. Not overly reliant upon minor league vets that are way too old for the level.

The question is do you stack a couple of teams for the playoffs or trust that the teams you have out there now, can carry you to the Championship. Will guys move up from ETown to CR or Guys move up from CR to Ft. Myers or Guys move up from NB to Rochester? What will happen in the next few weeks? Especially if ETown and NB don't make playoffs?

It will be interesting to see if, should Sano and Rosario be performing well at AA, they are promoted to Rochester for the playoffs. We could finally have some happy Red Wings fans!
