Yankees Making Changes To Scouting & Development

According to Nick Cafardo's twitter account and his column on the Boston Globe the New York Yankees are set to make significant changes to their player scouting and development parts of the organization. This news breaks on the heels of many people inside the organization, Brian Cashman and Hal Steinbrenner specifically, saying that a change was needed within the departments.

The Yankees Vice President of Baseball Operations Mark Newman and scouting director Damon Oppenheimer are reportedly going to be the first to go if there are any personnel changes so with this news dropping expect those two to get the ax. Honestly I cannot agree with making those moves as it is hard to develop a farm system picking at the end of the draft every season and when you do get someone who can make a significant impact, Jesus Montero for example, he is traded away. The Yankees have had a bad run of luck in the draft system as well which should not go unnoticed but if anyone should be under the microscope it should be Brian Cashman and not Newman or Oppenheimer. Just my two cents.
