A link to this article was buried in another thread but its a great read and deserves a thread of its own:

"Hal Steinbrenner calls his player-development team to account, but if he did know that his prospects crew was out to lunch and didn't do anything about it then he's incompetent. If he truly didn't know then he's ignorant. Take your pick."

Excellent article. Now if only Hal would read it. Strange to say, the person in charge of our minor-league system has been/is Cashman and Cashman primarily. He and he alone--I don't care abt the advice he gets from whoever occupies the niche of the "baseball people" nowadays--is responsible for letting Newman and Oppenheimer (the latter concerned, I guess, w/ just draft choices?) continue on the NYY payroll, and also the many scouts, all of whom have failed this team year after year after year while most of them received, one presumes, pretty good salaries compared w/ some of the other more successful minor-league-stoked clubs (e.g., Tampa Bay and Oakland).

Thanks for pointing this out.  I can't remember reading a better article on SB Nation. 


 


I've spent some time complaing about Yankees scouting and player development but was blown away by some of the evidence, this especially...



The list of homegrown Yankees developed after the 1990s to play even 100 games for the team is limited to Cano (1346 games), Gardner (606), Melky Cabrera (569), Eduardo Nunez (249) Francisco Cervelli (201), Ramiro Pena (180), and Eduardo Nunez. That's the lot for a period of 14 years and he's just getting around to asking now?



 


Given the deep pockets of this organization there is no reason for the poor peformance.  The Yankees  have the worst scouting and player development in the A. L. East and it's not even close.

Interesting just off the top of my head Soriano, Hughes, Joba and Robertson are missing from that list

They just need better scouting and development people. We do have talented players in the minors. But for some strange reason they are not producing with the big club. They are producing somewhere else. Austin Jackson, Ian Kennedy, Tyler clippard, dioner Navarro, etc

Soriano was not homegrown. Hughes Joba and Robertson are all pitchers.

If Soriano is not "homegrown" then neither is Ramiro Pena....
