Since 2001, the Yankees have surrendered seven first-round draft picks in order to sign free agents ranging from Mark Teixeira and Jason Giambi to Carl Pavano and Paul Quantrill. Three future All-Stars were taken either with those picks or within the next 10, making it reasonable to say the Yankees might have at least considered picking them: Matt Cain (2002), Gio Gonzalez (2004) and Mike Trout (2009).
Seems like they'd have the resources to be head and shoulders above pretty much every other ORG wrt to acquiring young latin prospects, but to my knowledge they aren't doing squat down there.
Surely there's a number at which Oakland isn't getting fleeced.
