Lane Meyer at NoMaas chatted with Yanks’ scouting director Damon Oppenheimer recently about the upcoming first year player draft. The part I found most interesting is that Oppenheimer was given an actual budget with a ceiling this year, compared to years past when he’s had more flexibility and less constraints. He also says that some people could be in for a surprise this year based on who the Yanks like and who they’ll end up taking. I’m intrigued. Make sure you head on over and give it a read.
