The farm really needs to start developing someone somewhere.
There was Dioner Navarro, who has had a pretty good MLB career, and Jesus Montero who still might prove to be a decent MLB bat... just not at catcher. I don't consider that "missing on all of them" and I'm not sure what you mean by a "plethora of can't miss catching prospects".

The system needs to do better for sure but catching has been one area where they've at least been above average. Not many systems have a Gary Sanchez or even a JR Murphy.
