Up until 2010, the New York Yankees and the words 'Farm System' were rarely used in the same sentence.
Just as the Yankees do with everything and anything, the task of building up a reputable farm system was met with relentless determination to do whatever it took to be deemed one of the best.
As I go through a zillion stats and video clips, some prospects stood out more than others.
Based on all my tireless research and notes from whom I liked down in Tampa, I present my New York Yankees All-Prospect Team.
My list covers all fielding positions and the DH, but no pitching as that talent deserves it's own slideshow.
(PLEASE EXCUSE THE SLIDES SANS A PICTURE, BUT BR DIDN'T HAVE ANY FOR SOME IN THE DATABASE)
**SIDE NOTE: The Yankees looked for certain distinct traits during the 2010 draft, as they grabbed more overall athletic players with risk, instead of grabbing guys with more definite talent. It baffled other teams scouts, as it made no sense when the Yankees could have waited and gotten a majority in the later rounds.
Either the Yankees front office is trying to build a young bench, while hoping one or two turn into Brett Gardner twins....OR the only future these youngsters have is being used as pure trade-bait with no intentions of ever making them the future of the Yankee because most of there prospects have the potential to be a huge star, but not without a lot of risk.
This is just what first popped into my head.....it is just a guess.
