Joey Bart leads a slightly improved farm system

Let’s be thankful for this passage from FanGraphs’ Top 34 prospects ranking of the Giants system that went up yesterday:

a lucky few scouts and media folks had a religious experience watching the sweetest-swinging teenager on Earth absolutely roast balls fed to his barrel by a high-speed pitching machine. Because of how close you can sit next to the field there, you can feel the sonic force of bat-to-ball impact radiate into your body. When Marco Luciano connects, you feel it to your core. He is not normal.

Never in my life have I seen a San Francisco Giants prospect described with such hyperbole.
