Clayton Kershaw, the kid is the next Johan.
Cardinals- Adam Ottavino, Colby Rasmus, Allen Craig, Jon Jay, Jaime Garcia
Meh..I'm a Giants fan..We don't have prospects. We only had one player in the minors this year. And that was Lincecum. He would pitch every game and hit every time.
Yeah, Henry Sosa is someone I'm looking forward to see in a few years along with Villalona.
I'm going to go with Oswaldo Navaro in the Mariner's system. He's young, and has got some pop in his bat considering he's only 150+ pounds. If that guy just put on about 40pounds of muscle mass, he'd be a force in the Mariner's infield, and pretty good at the top or bottom of their lineup.

What ever happened to Lastings Milledge?
Joba Chamberlain (if considered that anymore, will be a rookie next year still)
Phillip Hughes (not technically a rookie, but still a prospect)
That leaves room to trade: Karstens, Rasner, DeSalvo, Clippard, Wright, Veras, Bean
Not much in the position players though, but just produced Melky and Cano..
First, its Ross Ohlendorf...and he is going to be an ok reliever...he certainly doesn't warrant the top of this list. The pitching list should look like this:
Edwar Ramirez is 26 years old and only has 1 pitch...and unfortunately for him, his other pitches are so mediocre that you can sit on his change up or fastball and drill it.
Jeff Karstens, Darrell Rasner, Steven White, Jose Veras, and T.J. Beam (I'm assuming that is who you mean, because Colter BEAN isn't in the organization anymore) all are very mediocre...which is why they don't fit into the Yankees top prospects list.
Tyler Clippard, Chase Wright, and Jeff Marquez are not in the top pitching prospects category, but that doesn't mean they are bad. Clippard is a guy who prides himself and makes his living off of control, which he lost for some reason this year. If he can get his head back on straight, there is no reason he can't successfully pitch as a #4-#5 starter in the majors. Chase Wright is a left handed pitcher, so he will definitely get a chance to pitch regularly somewhere. He could make a useful starter or reliever some day.
Jeff Marquez is kind of the wild-card of the group. He doesn't have awesome stuff, but he is a lot like Chien-Ming Wang. He is a ground ball machine and could make himself into a solid #3 starter with a downside of #4-#5. He probably has the brightest future of the three pitchers mentioned above.
Now, here is another place I disagree with you. The Yankees do have position prospects, but they are in short supply. The Yankees went well out of their way this past draft to help address this issue.
They drafted: SS Carmen Angelini, 3B Brad Suttle, C Austin Romine, C Richard Weems, 2B Damon Sublett, and OF Taylor Grote.
Angelini and Suttle are considered the jewels of that crop with Sublett, Romine, and Grote all still unknown with lots of potential.
The Yankees always do a good job on the International Free Agent front and this year was no exception.
The Yankees do have some promising prospects in the OF in the forms of Jose Tabata, Austin Jackson, and Brett Gardener. Tabata and Jackson can hit and project to hit for a solid amount of power while Gardener projects to be a .300 hitter and steal about 50 bases.
The Yankees are lacking in the position prospects, but it certainly isn't a barren wasteland. Luckily for them, they have enough pitching prospects to deal if they were looking to upgrade their position prospects.
lol, Aroy laying down the law.
