Home Cookin'

I just realized that the Yankees have 12 guys on the roster that are products of the Yankees farm system. Who knew?
Derek Jeter
Jorge Posada
Shelley Duncan
Phil Hughes
Joba Chamberlain
Melky Cabrera
Robinson Cano
Jeff Karstens
Mariano Rivera
Chien-Ming Wang
Andy Phillips
Andy Pettitte
They may have the highest payroll, but there is no way anyone can justify that they're trying to buy a championship. I wonder how many teams out there have that many homegrown guys on the sqaud? The great thing is that each of of these guys is contributing. The stretch run is going to be great.
