Yankees farm system

I follow the minors quite a bit. I can tell you right now the New York Yankees farm system is THE WORST in baseball. Boston's isnt great but it's twice that of the Yankees.

I wouldn't call the Yankees the worst, but they could be definitly be in the bottom five.

By the way, Theo has done a good job through the Rule 5 draft, too.

If my memory serves me correctly, Lyons was a Rule 5 pickup from the Blue Jays. It's not like we were giving up a longterm top prospect there.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

How can you disagree with Anaheim not being #1? Casey Kotchman, Dallas McPherson and Jeff Mathis alone make it #1. Then you throw in the fact that they have some young fireballers and it's almost clear. Other contenders for top five would be the Phillies (Hamels, Floyd, Utley), Mets (Kazmir, Milledge, Huber, Wright), Royals (Greinke). Boston's minor league system is slightly lower than middle of the road. They are probably in the 20-23 range.


I agree w/ the Angels being the best ATM. We used to have their A-club here, before the Cubs took it over. It USED to be just sweet w/ Glaus/Anderson/Percival.....anyway.....

Just wanted to point out the dodgers farm is pretty nice w/ Edwin Jackson, Greg Miller, Joel Hanrahan ....for pitchers, and OF Reggie Abercrombie and 1b James Loney aren't bad.

Yes the pitching is GOOD, and the offense is sorta ho-hum...but its the best farm system they've had since early 80's.

Yes I'm biased!
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

I think NYY c Navarro by himself, puts NY above Cards and Expos, who only placed 3 guys in top 20, and ranked last. You like the Cards and Expos more?

Maybe Diaz if he keeps hitting tho his weight and average defense is a concern. The Mets lack OF prospects. Maybe Milledge, and doubtfully Duncan tho several people think he can do well. He seems to have a Gold Glove and a bronze bat


I've said the same thing about Duncan all along: Gold Glove, Bronze Bat. Same with Shinjo.

Can't wait until Milledge, Diaz, and Kazmir hit the majors...Oh yeah... ;-D
