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.
