The Baseball America Prospect Handbook came in the mail today. Here is their top 30 for the Yankees:

1. Joba Chamberlain, RHP
2. Austin Jackson, OF
3. Jose Tabata, OF
4. Ian Kennedy, RHP
5. Alan Horne, RHP
6. Jesus Montero, C
7. Jeff Marquez, RHP
8. Brett Gardner, OF
9. Ross Ohlendorf, RHP
10. Andrew Brackman, RHP
11. Mark Melancon, RHP
12. Humberto Sanchez, RHP
13. Dellin Betances, RHP
14. Dan McCutchen, RHP
15. Kevin Whelan, RHP
16. Carmen Angelini, SS
17. George Kontos, RHP
18. Ivan Nova, RHP
19. Collin Curtis, OF
20. Jairo Heredia, RHP
21. Juan Miranda, 1B
22. Austin Romine, C
23. Francisco Cervelli, C
24. Dave Robertson, RHP
25. Mike Dunn, LHP
26. J.B. Cox, RHP
27. Mitch Hilligoss, INF
28. Scott Patterson, RHP
29. Edwar Ramirez, RHP
30. Zach McAllister, RHP

One lefty? … Keep in mind that these rankings are done based on how the player projects, not what he has accomplished in the minors. … In the overall Top 50, Joba is 3rd, Tabata 22nd and Jackson 40th. … The Yankees are fifth in their overall organization talent rankings. … It’s been a hard fall for Eric Duncan.

How do they rank Jackson 2nd and Tabata 3rd for the Yankees, yet put Tabata 22nd and Jackson 40th overall? Makes no sense. Does anybody know where the 4 Mets prospects stand in the top 50 or 100?

Has Eric Duncan really been that horrible?

Will the Yankees focus on LHP in the draft or just try to get the best player available?

The overwhelming abundance of RHP really bothers mean. RHP is the last we need, being that the next 6-10 years of our roation (hopefully) will be comprised of the righties Wang, Hughes, Wang, Kennedy. Plus, we don’t have any lefty relivers. Why would they draft so many righties??

bothers me*

kd..it’s always better IMO to take the best player available.

The baseball draft is unlike any sport. You don’t draft for immediate need. You take the BPA.
