    You forgot more than a few Yankees. Possibly their ace Chien ming Wang is only 26 years old. Chris Britton is another relief pitcher on the same level as Edwar. Jose Tabata is looking great in the lower levels and his lack of power probably has a lot to do with his wrist injury. Austin Jackson also had a monster year and definitely has the tools. The only question is whether he can put it all together. JB Cox and Kevin Whelan could also be big relievers one day.
    Of course you could have just meant guys already up there. Anyway, it should be fun to see the two teams have these guys get called up

    And what about Okajima? He's not exactly chopped liver.

    Tabata has looked great. The wrist injury has kept his power #s down. He is for real so is Austin Jackson, Dellin Betances, Humberto Sanchez, Mark Melancon, Alan Horne, Just to name a few. Remember #s aren't everything. Cano and Wang are much better than their minor league #s would indicate. Both these organizations have the prospects to keep this rivalry dialed up for a long time. Lets have some fun with it….

    I was trying to focus on major league players who are at least under the age of 26. Any more and I would have probably gone on too long anyway.

    By the way, we haven't talked of a lot of other prospects who are doing great in the lower levels, either. But just to keep the talk in AAA, Bowden is another ace in the making, and Lowrie should replace Lugo right now.

    Correction: Bowden is in Portland.

    "Ellsbury will not be a .300 hitter."
    maybe not for his career but he should have many 300+/370+/~425 years in his late 20s while he still has speed
