Jeter, Cano, Mattingly, Pettite, Hughes, Joba, Bernie etc etc Are you kidding me?

How can we trade our prospects when you say we don't have any other teams want?

Ypur on;y consistency is your inconsistency, with all due respect!!!!!!!

Actually most people picked the Rangers to win the AL West again….and the Yankees to win the East or WC.

YOU WROTE…"The question should be are we good enough to earn a wild card spot."

When did the Yankees become a team whose goal is to win a WC spot? I thought the Yankees were supposed to be a team contending for the division??? Right now they are neither…

I think David Phelps has a shot, but the best prospects the Yankees brought up are on other teams now. Austin Jackson, Ian Kennedy and Jesus Montero. The Yankees can have the best farm system ever but they have problems trusting youth over age, which is why they trade them or mishandle them. It doesn't take other teams 5-years to get guys stable like Hughes and Joba, as it was the Yankees confusion that crippled these two.

Bullpen to starter – back to bullpen sent down too Triple A – back up to starter etc…. I think you get my point.

And of course other teams want prospects but what will the Yankees be left with if we trade more of them?

Not much as they don't want to spend any money….so it is time to decide to dedicate themselves to youth or go sign high fee agents. That is if Hal Steinbrenner ever does more than talk about winning, and actually put a team on he field that can.

Read a little Keith Law analysis and see why we are ranked #10 out of 30 teams. So we do have a few youngsters others may want. Major league ready, NO but that's not what you wrote.

You get this wrong in virtually all your posts!!!!

You conveniently fail to mention that after 2 consecutive 1 hitters, we scored 5 runs off of him. Small sample size but you offered nothing at all.

On paper all those teams you mentioned are better. So were the Angels in 2012 and what happened to them. The question should be are we good enough to earn a wild card spot. Play ball!!!!!
