I agree, and that's why the Red Sox are the new Yankees, IMO. They're a dominant team, mostly developed internally with the cash to keep everybody. They'll be around for a decade.

But I also think the Yankees' farm is better than the total void people paint it to be. There are some good players developing who could be an asset.

This is really the old paradigm that became outdated during the zenith of the Yankees/Red Sox rivalry and has just now returned to what was the status quo for the majority of baseball history.

Minus the useless spending on overpaid free agents.

And most of them are at the lower levels, and are a while away from contributing. The closest is Austin Jackson, and he's not exactly a game changer. And he needs at least another half year, if not a full year.

That's why I don't see this really coming together for a couple years.

Yeah but thats if they all pan out. Not to mention, there arent alot of these players you mention(Jackson, and the catchers, and who else?) and none of them are elite level prospects.

Man, if he and Todd Van Poppel could meet up, that would be awesome.
