I’m no expert in farm ball or what the Yankees (or the Sox, for that matter) have running around at the moment, but I do know that a system that appears totally dry one year can be at the top of the pack two years later, so who really knows just what will be there for either team down the line. I have heard that the Yanks have a good young catcher who could be in line to replace Posada. And they’ve had a few players win minor-league player-of-the-week awards in the last month (saw that in the Times’s “Minor League Report”). But before you go casting stones, just who do you expect to see in a Sox uniform? That whole team, besides Nomar and Varitek, is acquired and hardly a bunch of spring chickens.
