If they have to give up even one semi-valuable prospect, it's stooooopid.
The Yanks don't have any "semi-valuable prospects", and thier Farm system is called Major League Baseball. Let's be honest. They are everything I hate about baseball. I could not be happier to see them fall short each year, despite a staff stocked full of all-stars.
You're wrong about them not having any valuable prospects. They have a better system now than they've had in recent years and there are plenty of major league teams with worse prospects in the minors than the Yankees. The better ones the Yankees have are just in the lower levels and aren't major-league ready right now.
On Jacque Jones.. I'd love to have him - he's one of my favorite players.
