Marc Hulet at Fangraphs is running though how each organization each organization has performed in recent drafts, as well as a taking a quick look at what we could expect this year, and today he touched on the Yankees. Everything is pretty much spot on regarding the ’08, ’07 and ’06 drafts (remember that it’s tough to say anything definitive on last year’s or even 2007’s class), and for the most part the ’09 outlook is solid. I do disagree that the Yanks need relievers though, they actually have bullpen arms coming out of their ears at the upper levels, it’s just that they’ve performed poorly in the first twenty games of the season. And besides, drafting relievers high is a dumb strategy anyway. Give a read, it’s quick, painless and informative.
