Using league financial thresholds as the guide, Brian and his band of outlaws has just "plucked" another group of back-ups to back-ups for our farm system. The number one pick is already close to his mid twenties, as he stretches out the course work at UCLA to remain " baseball eligible."
Have you ever seen UCLA? The whole Brentwood/ Westwood part of LA? The access to beaches, the glorious campus, the blonds with personality and brains? No one wants to leave that campus.
But the Yankee brain trust and their minions do not fool us. The Lone Ranger sees evil and stamps it out, wherever and whenever it exists.
I am assured by this masked man of dubious sexual identity, that not a single member ( his word, not mine ) of the Yankee 2015 draft will ever be more than a back-up at AA. Think Tyler Austin multiplied by 7 ( after today's riotous 4 are added).
And don't think you can parry the masked man's view by saying; " the draft is a crap shoot; you can't tell for 5 years who might turn out a good or great player, etc."
It is a crap shoot, all right, when Brian Cashman orchestrates it. Crap is rife. In steamy piles.
A large conglomeration of dung is now Yankee property. Let's trot one or more of them out to the stadium, and put a camera on them.
We got nothing. "Hi, Ho Silver, Away" ( lot's of cowboys speak like this to their horses ).
Put 'em all in jail.
