- Rany Jazayerli shares his thoughts on prospect mania, and he's spot on. Prospects are valuable, but the degree to which teams are valuing them these days is ridiculous. The Yankees have three very good prospects - Jesus Montero, Dellin Betances, and Manny Banuelos - but also a huge need for a starting pitcher in 2012 and 2013. Yet somehow, all three of these guys have been basically deemed untouchable.
- The Yankee Analysts chime in with general musings on the Gio Gonzalez and Mat Latos trades, and the John Danks non-trade. One question: is the price of pitching too high, or are are Washington and Cincinnati ahead of the curve in realizing prospects are actually worth less than we think?
- RAB helps you answer that question I just asked. I'll ask it it again in the poll.
- Put some of your Christmas money together for this. I don't think this is a joke, either.
