BA Rule V draft preview


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. ”

    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….

    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!”

    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…
