OT : Rebuilding

For a long time now rebuilding with youth was thought to only be for small market teams. Teams in New York always "had" to trade for the BIG names but stayed mediocre or below.

Now we see teams like the Rangers, Knicks and Yankees depending on developing young players as a means for improving their teams. With the New York teams now investing big in scouting and devloping younger players does this give the advantage back to the big market teams.

The Yankees are rated #5 overall by Baseball America and have many GREAT young players ready to blossom. The Knicks have showed tremendous inprovement lately with the younger players like Lee, Balkman, Fry and Curry leading the way.

The Rangers are slowly improving thanks to many of their younger players and seem to have their cup overflowing with budding young players.

Have we seen the big market teams finally figure out that winning starts with developing young talent.
