    In response to smiley--beni--2817's comment:

    Guys, you have to ask yourself, can the Yankees even put 9 people on the field on opening day.  With Granderson out, they appear to have only 2 outfielders.  A-Fraud is out, Jeter is hobbling around and they have no catcher.  As has also been widely reported, they have no prospect in the farm to help them.  I said last week that the Yankees would be bringing up the rear in the AL East dogfight, and it looks like Smiley is going to be right on the money again.

    Jeter will be fine. As for Arod it could turn into addition by subtraction. On the surface it appears the yankees are in trouble. Time will tell. I'am not ready to wear black but unless Hal lets the moths escape his wallet it could be curtain time. I still prefer a competitive Sox / Yanks season.

    Yes the yankees have no farm system to either put players on the field this season or make trades.

    Yankees best prospects are a year away however there will be a few new faces in 2013.

    I just find it comical that the Yankee farm is given absolutely no credit here.

    As it doesn't exist.

    There could be some impacting rookies this season.

    They do have a few decent prospects.

    i just assumed there was no top flight prospects ready (or slated to be ready) this season... i live in NY and i haven't heard anyone talking about one. Not in the papers or analysts (then again, i'm not actively LOOKING for it too). Just figured if they had someone they would have talked about them since they are looking everywhere for spare IF'ers and now OF'ers

    The late Steinbrenner would have gotten Stanton from the Marlins, spend $1 billion during the offseason, and dump A-Rod for throwing baseballs to female fans.  

    I hate the Yankees but at least the late Steinbrenner had balls bigger than the state of New York.   LOL

    I'm surprised, Mark Montgomery has been mentioned in numerous articles and has pitched well in the AFL and has a very good chance to be in the Bronx very early on if not out of camp.

    Last Sunday the NY Post had a full page story about Slade Heathcott who Damon Oppenheim the head of Yankee player personnel has said is an impact player and would be in the Bronx this season.

    Heathcott was drafted in 2010 and has a tendency to run into fences chasing balls. His progress was slowed last season for the same requiring shoulder surgery. He finished the season at AA then played extremely well in the AFL. 

    Plus numerous pitching prospects will be up this season.

    Some of the Yankees top prospects are outfielders but the three best could be a year away.

    Mason Williams, Tyler Austin and Slade Heathcott.

    Like all Yankee prospects, the current crop is a year or two away ... from falling off the prospect list and fading into obscurity.  

    There are 4 Yankees on the BA top 100 list, and only Tyler Austin has played as high as AA, and that was all of two games.

    Mark Montgomery will be up early 2013 if not out of camp.

    I remember being on this site 2004-5 and reading from the posters here about the enthusiam toward a 2nd base prospect named Dustin Pedroia when there was no mention of another over in the Yankee farm system named Robinson Cano who flew in under the radar.

    I've seen enough Yankee hopefuls and Sox prospects who were hyped here  to know that out of the many who are great prospects very few actually blossom into stars.

    Staying healthy especially for young pitchers is half the battle.

    Re: The Yankee Opening Day Lineup

    But all that being said Yankee and Sox fans are fortunate in the respect that they are able to watch young players come up through the system and adapt to playing in the major leagues.

    Other fans of small market teams not as fortunate.

    I think that is one of the reason I love baseball more than any other sport being able to watch the farms and able to watch young players develope.

    And I might add that all of us have had expectations of prospects dashed when they get up to the big time.

    I remember watching Mark Melancon come up through the Yankee farm system his set-up man was David Robertson all the way up through AAA.

    I never would have imagined that Robertson would have much better success with MLB than Melancon.

    Just goes to show.

    Re: The Yankee Opening Day Lineup

    Yankees pitching prospects have fallen from grace (a bit). But I've heard good things about Mason Williams and Sanchez.

     

    Are the Sox in a better position than the Yankees?  I guess it depends on how you look at it.  I for one say yes,  but being in a better position will not 100% guarantee outcome.  Our farm is superiour to the Yankees, but that doesn't mean we will develop more stars over the next several years.  Sox have the chance to, but until it happens they are only prospects.  sox have better payroll flexibility, but we can sill spend poorly, and as screwed as the Yankees are now, they will be looking much slimmer in several years if they can swallow a couple bad seasons.  

     

    Yankees are still a talented team, maybe not as scary but until they actually stink we can't say much.

    I remember reading all the posts here how the Sox had stolen Craig Hanson right out from the under the noses of the Yankee system he pitching college ball for St Johns.

    Then you have someone come into camp like Mariano Rivera who in his home country of Panama was a shortstop who had just started pitching. On the gun for Yankee scouts 85-87 mph with a fluid motion so the Yankees seeing raw talent signed Mo for 3k..

    Btw Mariano was a flop as a starter in the Yankee system.
