With the amateur draft coming up soon and the rumors swirling, I thought I would share some thoughts about how the Yankees may approach the draft. Apologies for the length, but I haven’t really written about the draft yet this year, so I have a lot to discuss. There are two major factors in this [...]
The 2011 MLB draft will be held on Monday, June 6th at 7pm. MLB Network will be showing the first and supplemental rounds like last year. The rest of the draft takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday over a conference call that you can listen in on. With less than a month to go, we’ll [...]
I’ll be back to chime in if the Yankees do anything interesting in the late Day 3 rounds. For now, I’d like to say a few things.
I still don’t really know what to make of the Cito Culver pick. The Yankees are definitely betting that their judgment on the kid is better than everyone [...]
After a long day, I woke up early to start to process the Yankee draft Day 2. Here is a spreadsheet that I made with all their picks, and some of my notes:

Best Value Pick: Robert Segedin, 3rd round. This guy has [...]
So I know we haven’t written anything about the 2010 draft thus far. Quite frankly, amateur talent is neither Mike’s nor my forte, and aside from reading Mike Axisa’s prospect profiles I know very little about the majority of the guys the Yanks were considering and ended up taking, and [...]
I don’t know a thing about Cito Culver right now, other than what Jim Callis just told MLB Network. He was ranked toward the bottom of Callis’s top-200 rankings, and may or may not be a shortstop long term. Callis didn’t seem to want to use the word, but he seemed to characterize Culver as [...]
While adding Matt Holliday to the Yankees lineup has its fair share of detractors and supporters, from Anthony McCarron, we learn that the organization could have added Holliday to the team 10 years ago via the ’98 draft. According to McCarron, “Holliday could have been a Yankee out of high school,” [...]
Rather than pursue a career in the MLB, Yusei Kikuchi has decided to stay in Japan. The Yankees, along with several other Major League organizations, were interested in the young lefty. However, he’ll be a part of the Japanese amateur draft which is scheduled for October 29th (he’s projected to be the first overall [...]
I never judge a draft class until we know which players have signed or not. The Yankees brought in some expected and some unexpected talent at the signing deadline this year, and now we can finally step back and take a look at what happened in the beginning of the June.
The Top Guys[image title="rise_slade_heathcott1_300" [...]
Bryan Hoch recently spoke with Damon Oppenheimer regarding the 2009 draft. First, he talks about their new budget:
“We’ve been given a budget by ownership this year, and we’re going to work within that budget. We have parameters that we’re going to use. You have to be a little more cautious and you [...]
