This week at TYA, we have something special for you, ladies and gentlemen. While not every post this week will be prospect-centric, there will be myriad musings on the Yankee farmhands. Later today, E.J. will release the composite TYA Top 20 Yankee prospects, and throughout the week, we’ll have multiple roundtable discussions related to prospects.
Prospects are a reflection of what I love about the game of baseball. It’s a game of constant anticipation, and that’s the same game we play when we prospect watch. Nothing in baseball is a guarantee and that practically goes without saying when it comes to prospects. But we love it anyway. No matter how far away they are, no matter what position they play, prospects offer hope for the future that feels good in the moment, even if it doesn’t fully pan out in the end for whatever reason. Maybe that prospect busts. Maybe that prospect gets traded away. We may never actually complete the ride to the majors with them, but the portion we get to tag along for is always a blast.
Like Spring Training every year, prospects offer a sense of renewal and freshness. And like baseball, they don’t work out most of the time. Regardless of that failure rate, we love it all the more. Why? Because it’s that much sweeter when a prospect does work out. Welcome to Prospect Week.
