Baseball America hot shots Jim Callis and John Manuel posted a their fantasy mock draft today, acting as team scouting directors and alternating first round picks. Callis took Texas prep outfielder Slade Heathcott with the Yanks’ first round pick, most certainly not the first time we’ve seen his name connected to the Bombers. It’s a rare non-subscriber piece, so make sure you head on over and check it out.
This is the first time in three years that I don’t have the slightest clue about which way the Yanks are leaning. Gerrit Cole was the odds on favorite last year, and the year before that Andrew Brackman was all but a given. This year though … no idea at all. It’s exciting, who doesn’t like surprises?
