    I think they're playing roulette, not Pai Gow. I don't think they drop that money on a kid like that if not for his ceiling specifically. I could be wrong, but I don't think I am.
    Kind of off-topic, but does the scout that helped get Dominguez signed get a piece of that $5.1M?

    10% "commission" would be $510K. Yeah, I'd certainly play up the 5-tool thing and float Mike Trout's name when I turned in my scouting report.

    Having said that, if there's a #2 starter available via trade for Dominguez, I'd re-invest that $5.1M, simply because it's probably easier to find another young 5-tool OF prospect than it is to find a #2 MLB starter.

    Yanks should scoop up Keury Mella . A Milb deal would add a power arm who could be nice find.

    A very realistic take.

    Hell he might even be the next Brien Taylor.

    Actually, each player is quite different. Maybe he meant it as a tiered thing? Trout is a generational talent, Judge is a top 25 overall talent, and Gardner has been a championship team level starter for his career.

    Maybe he meant "Lets pump the breaks on calling him the next Trout, let alone the next Judge, hell, he might not even be the next Gardner."

    But where is the fun in any of that?

    Also, Judge is much closer to Gardner than Trout. Except for injuries. Judge is much more like Trout when it comes to injuries.

    Definitely agree that putting Brett Gardner and Mike Trout in the same sentence is hilarious and absurd, and that we hope Dominguez is better than 2021 Gardner.

    That said... Gardner does have ~40 career WAR, about the same as Paul O'Neill / Jorge Posada (~50 WAR is like the minimum to be in a HOF conversation, I think 60 WAR usually gets you in). A 40-WAR-in-Yankee-uniform career from Dominguez is higher than what you'd project for someone who hasn't played an MiLB game, no matter how talented.

    Obviously we hope his peak is higher than Gardner's, just shows how long the road ahead of him is.

    I don't know. I sure hope once he takes the field Jasson is better than our 38 year old 4th outfielder.

    Nice catch.

    I bet there's a lot of ball fields being built in these kids' home town, with the Yanks footing the bill in order to get a leg up (lol)

    "If you build it, they will come"

    BTW I'm looking forward to the Yankee game in Iowa this season

    I expect that they have to institute a draft soon. The landscape is very different than even 10 years ago. The best prospects are mostly from IFA (just look at who the young stars are)-and itís pretty unfair that the Yankees can just sign the top IFA prospects. I wonder how much sketchy stuff goes on behind the scenes with these academies/paying for access.

    I like the current system though of course, and I think once a draft is instituted it will be almost impossible for anybody to have a 25 year run like the past 25 for the Yankees. Rebuilding will become a necessity for everyone.
