The Yankees used to outbid everyone internationally. Well, except the Dodgers and Blue Jays. But for a long time, they had the market cornered.

Now almost every team pumps money into international scouting. The Yankees can only lure these kids with their name. They usually lose out on a lot of Latin and Asian kids.

I would personally rather they spend the millions of player development and scouting, but they fielded so many pathetic lineups last season, you knew a big splash was coming.

I dont know. These guys will be very tough to beat this year, but unless it's the start of a mini dynasty, it will be just another example of the Yankees outspending everyone.
