Yeah, we have exactly one stud prospect: Fernando Martinez. That's it. The rest of our farm system is crap. The reason we got Santana is because neither the Red Sox or the Yankees felt like giving up a huge chunk of their farm systems to get Santana. Lets face it, the Red Sox and Yankees have way, way, way better farm systems than us. If we had the kind of talent in our farm systems that they do, then we wouldn't be in such a bind right now. Look at all that young pitching. We didn't mind giving up what we gave up to get Santana because we didn't have anything to give up in the first place compared to the Sox and Yanks. Also it helped that nobody else was willing to pay Santana other than those three organizations, which doesn't happen in hockey with the cap.
