BA Rule V draft preview

On walkways, new stadiums and political donations
Twins to acquire Delmon Young

BA posted their Rule V draft preview, which is far more informative than mine. I’ve always been a Jamie D’Antona fan, but he’s really just a useful bench guy for an NL club. If Fernando Hernandez is a Matt Guerrier-type, how do you not give him a shot? Ya gotta love the scrap heap pickups.

    “Brian Barton, of, Indians

    Ever the enigma, Barton went undrafted in 2004 after clubs were scared off by his aerospace engineering major at Miami. ”

    Huh????

      He was often seen standing in the OF with a slide rule trying to calculate the exact spot where the ball would come down. ;-)

          i didnt know anything about a subject as integral as say… aerospace engineering. you study the subject and lets see if you can explain it to me.

            Aerospace guys are nerds, they’re just rocket scientists. Now structural engineers, those guys are the shit.

    MiLB ranked IPK the 26th best prospect in baseball!
    So meanwhile, the Yankees already have 2 prospects in the top 50, while the RedSox have none….

      hmm can Tabata really still be in the top 20? I hope so or his stock has fallen significantly.

      That list is an absolute joke. They should really be embarrased by some of those rankings. Elbert over Detwiler? How the hell is Hochevar even on the list???

    Hey RAB, congrats on getting linked at Deadspin. I was going through the day’s posts over there and was like “Hey, I have already seen this today!”

  • Spike

    That’s better than getting linked to Meatspin, I can assure you.

    D’Antonia is from my home town – Trumbull, CT – and I think he’d be a great bench player as well……the kid could always hit (and still can) just can’t field at all….it’ll be interesting to see where he’ll end up… i mean the guy RAKED the ACC the entire time he was at Wake Forest…
