      The Big 4 all in the top 100, as expected.

      Ugh.
      Didn’t we learn anything in 2008 with “The Big Three”?

      Yeah, let young starters throw and take their lumps. :P

      Well, for a team as old as the Yankees and with all the retooling that’s just ahead, having no players in the top 30 and only one in the top 50 is a concern. With the pressing need for some infield talent (short, third and maybe 2nd), I wish I could find a Yankee infield prospect on that list.

      Maybe so. However, hitting prospects are somewhat less volatile than pitching prospects, as a group.

      How’s about trading Mason Williams for Elvis Andrus, and praying Slade Heathcott stays healthy? Just a thought. But keep in mind that prospects are fungible. If their value is perceived to be high enough, you can convert them into something that fills a need.

      It’s only if you place value in arbitrary rankings. A player ranked 80th this year can be ranked 20th next year and a player ranked 10th this year can easily be ranked 60th next year.

      Point is, it’s better to have players on the list than to not have players on the list but, beyond that, it’s all more or less unknown.

      That should read “it’s only a concern if you place value in arbitrary rankings. The “a concern” were accidentally ommitted above. Damn typos…
