  1. Law has said in his chats that he projects Betances to be a reliever, but seems higher on him in the excerpt.

  2. I don't quite see the team being set with position players for the next 2-4 years, especially for 2014. We've gone through the 2014 roster extensively, and there are still a lot of question marks there. If they are going to hit that magic budget, they are going to need to fill in their roster with cheap (as in, current minor leaguers) talent.

  3. Its actually a good thing that most of the superior talent is in the lower levels for the Yankees. With so many veterans inked to long term contracts, these kids would be blocked anyway. This makes the upper level prospects expendable because most of them wont receive a chance to prove themselves at the big league level, and since the upper level prospects have more trade value, this is a double good thing.

    It will allow the Yankees to let their higher upside prospects develop while the vets keep the big league club competitive. When those contracts expire you can slide in whichever prospects make it. Very good position to be in for the Yankees.
