I had no clue about Wang. The kid came out of nowhere and was great. The Yankees really do have good prospects, it's just that they trade them so often for big name players that we don't hear about them.
Can you name me a big prospect that has come up over the past few years, from the Yankees farm system? Wily Mo Pena is about the only one who has somewhat of a prominent name, and even he isn't that big.
Most of the Yankee prospects are overhyped because they are Yankee prospects. Alot of them turn out to be nothing special...see: Brandon Claussen. I was flipping out when they traded him for Boone, but he turned out to be nothing special.
Big name prospect in Yanks organization : Alfonso Soriano
Baseball America also considers Jose Contreras and Hideki Matsui prospects - that could be debated
I might give you Soriano since he actually played in the Yankees farm system, but Matsui and Contreras? Give me a break.
