      So: a starting leftfielder, a starting pitcher, and two key relievers from the farm in the typical 4-6 year window, plus a guy who went in the trade for Randy Johnson, another in the trade for Marte and Nady, two others in the trade for Curtis Granderson, another in the trade for Lance Berkman, and one in the trade for Javier Vazquez.

      And this doesn’t count the guys who got traded without ever reaching the majors for players who contributed to the Yanks, like the 4 guys who got traded for Bobby Abreu. (Actually, Matt Smith, drafted by the Yanks in 2000, and who made the majors for a cup of coffee for the Yanks in 2006 before they traded him to the Phils, was one of the four.)
