    Yankees Receive Sandwich Round Draft Pick Compensation

    "Before Swisher became a free agent, the Yankees assured themselves that they would get draft-pick compensation by making him a one-year $13.3 million qualifying offer. The average annual value of Swisher's deal with the Indians is $14 million." Paul Hoynes, The Plain Dealer
    This is a 2nd Round Draft Pick. Wonder who they will pursue...

    2012 - Austin Aune CF & Peter O'Brien C
    2011 - Sam Stafford (DNS) LHP
    2010 - Angelo Gumbs SS/OF
    2009 - JR Murphy C

    An overview of 2nd round picks since the Yankees last championship.

    Incorrect. The Yankees get a sandwich pick between the first and second rounds but Cleveland loses its second round pick.

    Shame it was Cleveland. I'd rather him have went to a team without a protected 1st RD pick. It would have shrunk the 1st RD, and thus gotten us closer to a pick. Or do the sandwich picks go by record of teams signing players offered qualifying contracts?

    Not sure how the sandwich picks line up. But yes, any team out of the top ten signing one of these guys has their pick disappear, which helps the sandwich picks move up.

    Nice thing is we will have three picks in a bunch between 28-35.

    Knowing our fortune, the picks won't amount to anything.

    This year's draft is supposed to be very light from what I've heard. So of course we get plenty of picks when the pickings are so slim

    Then we shouldnt be concerned with early picks. Which early pick is the one we look to as a great pick?

    With the Rays winning since 2008 how many of their drafts have been spectacular?

    Losing will help any organization get untapped talent. Then development of those draft picks must bear some fruit eventually for a team to get credit for good drafts. 2-3 years of last place teams in NY might be better then to spend a ton on free agents just to lose in the short series games in Oct. This team must decide on which direction they are heading....after 2013 I'd pull the plug and start focusing on building the farm for 2-3 years....

    I'm okay with their unwillingness to check out for a year (for the amount the fans spend on tickets every team should make an effort to put a competitive team on the field), but it baffles me how an organization as well-respected and time-honored as the New York Yankees has yet to figure out a formula for drafting. It's almost comical how historically bad our picks are.

    I don't think we need a pick in the top five to find young talent, but we do need to admit that A) we need to reevaulate our scouting system and B) the only way we'll find out if we have value in our farm is if we start throwing them into sink or swim circumstances. Leaving them in AAA until they're 28 obviously stunts their growth.

    We've done a good job consistently putting good teams out there, but what I don't get is why they can't commit themselves to one project per year. If you have four good rotation pitchers, try a rookie for the fifth. If you have eight solid position players, call someone up for the ninth (especially if it's a position we have a need for). Their affinity for minimally successful guys with major league experience over young guys with potential astounds me. Look how much success teams like Los Angeles, Boston, and Tampa have had putting young players out there.
