26th pick Blake Swihart a high school switch hitting catcher who has committed to go to Texas. He is the first catcher taken in the draft and supposedly is a great hitter.

I'm certainly excited that we picked Guy I've Never Heard Of, he has way more upside than Guy I've Never Heard Of, and doesn't have the signability problems that come with Guy I've Never Heard Of.

Obviously I hope that all of our picks sign and are awesome, but the MLB Draft will never have much of a following, because college baseball is such an obscure sport relative to, say, college football, which feeds into a ton of the excitement of the NFL Draft.

They totally screwed up by not taking Guy I've Never Heard Of with the 36th pick when they took Guy I've Never Heard Of.

I don't know, I hadn't heard a lot about guy I never heard of. That guy might just pan out.
Barnes seems interesting - despite the lack of education he's getting at UCONN, the degree mill.
I like that they drafted a catcher, can he start in the Yankees series?

That's the joy of soxprospects.com - I feel like they do all my thinking for me on this crap. I'll hit that site and read about the haul, rather than this thread where we make fun of our own ignorance.

I only started the thread because the first Guy I Never Heard Of, I actually heard of.

You are a dirty dirty liar. No one has ever heard of a draft pick more than 36 hours prior to the draft.

Evah.

Am I the only one who doesn't really want this guy on my baseball team?

I wasn't being critical of a thread being started, by any means.

Wayne Gretsky's kid and Eddie Gaedel's grandson.
That one wide-ranging talent pool.

Eddie Gaedel's grand-nephew, not grandson. I can't stand thinking other board members might be misinformed due to your misreading of the article.

Edit: And if you're curious, he's 6'3.

If anyone is interested in seeing him pitch, he is facing South Carolina in the Super Regional on ESPN 2 right now. He struck out the side in the first inning.
