Yanks’ affiliates finish with second best record in the minorsBy
The Yankees’ six stateside minor league affiliates combined for a 381-309 record this season, the 18th consecutive season in which they posted an over-.500 record. It might be longer for all I know, but B-Ref’s minor league data only goes back so far. According to Baseball America, that 381-309 record was the second best record among all 30 organizations in the minors, trailing only the absurdly successful Giants’ system, who finished 411-286. Hard to believe the Yanks’ had the second best combined record in all of minor league baseball, but were still 23 games back in the loss column of the top team. Crazy.
Congrats goes out to everyone for the great year in the minors, not just the players but all the coaches and instructors as well.
