New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner called a meeting in Tampa yesterday to question the team’s lack of player development. The meeting included general manager Brian Cashman, and various player development personnel including Mark Newman, Damon Oppenheimer, and Donny Rowland.

Sorry Hal, you can’t have it both ways. Either you restock your farm system with trades or you play the free agent game like the Yankees have played. It is not player developments fault that Cashman has pillaged the farm system.
