Cubs #6 in ESPN's "Future" Power Rankings

I'm not a regular on this site, but I do read basically every thread. However, I haven't been around for a few days and I missed anyone's post on ESPn writers' Law, Olney, and Bowden's future power rankings:

1. Cards

2. Rangers

3. Rays

4. Nats

5. Yanks

6. Cubs

7. Reds

8. Dodgers

9. Tigers

10. Red Sox

11. Braves

12. Angels

13. Blue Jays

14. Giants

15. D-backs

16. A's

17. M's

18. O's

19. Padres

20. Royals

21. Twins

22. Astros

23. Mets

24. Phillies

25. Pirates

26. White Sox

27. Brewers

28. Indians

29. Marlins

30. Rockies

Most comments simply declare our #6 ranking as ridiculous. I don't have anything thought-provoking on the topic, but I missed any threads that may have been related to this. So, BCBers, what say you? This list is based off 5 years down the road, which I find unpredictable, but I'm assuming financial backing, management, and prospects all play a significant role in the determination.

Thoughts?
