On Laird (2006 info):

http://pe.cypresscollege.edu/~baseball/lairdb.php


Cypress Highlights: Laird followed up his stellar high school career with a solid year for Cypress batting .341 including a ten game hit streak early in the season. Laird started in all 54 games for Cypress playing around the infield with a .981 fielding percentage. He led the team in hits with 74 including nine doubles, two triples, and six homeruns for 53 RBI. Against Santa Ana College, Laird went four for five including a homerun for four RBI.

High School Highlights: Was named the Orange County Player of the Year. Also honored with first team all-league, first team all-CIF, a second team all-America selection, and league Most Valuable Player.

Notes: Most memorable sports moment was winning a CIF championship at Anaheim Stadium and winning the World Championship for the USA Youth Tradition team.

On Brian Chavez:
http://www.cstv.com/sports/m-basebl/stories/112305aaf.html


Brian Chavez (SS) - Palmdale, CA/College of the Canyons
Chavez, a 6'2 185-pound slick fielding shortstop is one of the finest middle infielders in the state. Drafted in 2004 by the Seattle Mariners and again in 2005 by the Diamondbacks, Chavez impacts games with his glove and his swing. In the past year he has put on 10 pounds to help a bat already loaded with pop. The increase in strength should help him build on an impressive freshman year. Chavez earned All-Western State First Team honors, averaging .275 with 10 doubles and four home runs for Chris Cota at College of the Canyons. In September Chavez was named to the California State All-Star game. Once on the Hilltop Chavez will help bolster the middle infield and the middle of the order.

</td> <td width="5"> http://graphics.fansonly.com/graphics/spacer.gif</td> </tr> </tbody></table>
Giarratano on Chavez: "Brian is the top infielder in the state of California JC system. He is capable of playing shortstop, and being a very offensive player. He will be a middle of the order player, who will have the highest impact on our program since Tagg Bozied."


Another college junior...

Drew Storen has a connection to the Yankees. His father is Mark Patrick the annoying broadcaster.



He was there to watch his son, Drew Storen, pitch for a team sponsored by the New York Yankees.

"I've been really fortunate because what I do really allows me to do my radio show from where I might be,'' Patrick said. "With Drew being all over the country the last few years playing in all the great tournaments and this showcase in Wilmington, I'm a lucky dad to be a part of his life that way.''

Patrick said he's managed to see all of Storen's games and Storen has received a lot of attention.

He threw three scoreless innings, allowing two hits with no walks while striking out two against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Scouts clocked his fastball at 86-90 mph and his slider, which one Midwest scout called his best pitch, at 77 mph.

"He has that Luis Tiant delivery and has a good feel for how to pitch,'' the scout said. "He kept the ball down and was setting up hitters.''

Mike Gibbons, the Yankees' manager in the event, said last week that Storen reminded scouts of Tim Hudson.

"I've heard Kevin Brown,'' Patrick said. "I've heard El Duque (Orlando Hernandez) and a right-handed Dontrelle Willis. They're all basically 6 feet or 6-1 power pitchers.''

Committed to Stanford

It's ok to go a little over slot like other teams do (and even go a little past those other teams), but if they pulled something like you are suggesting, they'd likely pay for it big time in the future with rule changes meant to equalize spending in the draft instead of the current system that allows them an advantage. It's a delicate balance.

Q: bruce from bronx asks:
Did the Yankees draft any sleepers?

A: Jim Callis: In terms of good value with talent vs. draft slot, the guys who jump out at me are Texas third baseman Brad Suttle (fourth round), Louisiana high school shortstop Carmen Angelini (10th round) and Kent State righty Chris Carpenter (18th round). We'll see how signable they are, but Suttle and Carpenter were potential sandwich-round talents.

and if everyone else is spending about $5M on the draft and they are spending $25M, they're going to lose the support of the Angels, Tigers, and Red Sox types who spend with them now.

They'll be around 14. And if teams don't like it, they can stops taking the Yanks money. The Yanks can survive without the anti-trust exemption...

Yes, that's what he's saying he wanted to do.It was hyperbole. Last year we spent something like 12 between the draft and IFA. This year it could be the same or a little higher. The IFA class isn't as good as it was last year, so that might be cheaper, while the draft will be a littler pricier. Remember, too, that we don't have a first and a sandwhich this year, we just have a first that was taken below where we got Kennedy. I think we'll be able to get a lot done. The non-signability second day kids are close to free.

Interesting breakdown of picks:

15 RHP from 4 year colleges (counted Venditte as a RHP- likely what he will do as a pro)
2 RHP from jucos
5 RHP from HS

1 juco LHP

2 HS C
1 C from a 4 year college

2 1B from a 4 year college

3 2B from a 4 year college (counted Sublett as a 2B- likely where he will play)

1 SS from HS
3 SS from a 4 year college

1 juco 3B
2 3B from a 4 year college

1 HS OF
2 juco OF
7 OF from a 4 year college

One more note- of the Yanks D&F guys from last year- only Ladendorf was drafted- in the 33rd round by SF. BA claimed he turned down 6 figures from the Yanks- looks like his gamble didn't pay off.

Matsui55
06-08-07, 11:58 PM
Pretty clear that offense was the focus of this draft- especially middle INF and OF.

Another trend- note that the Yanks have drafted exactly 7 LHP in the last two years (only 1 this year). They also apparently only signed Dennehy (the D&F this year). I doubt they sign a 49th round HS LHP.

At the same time, they drafted 42 RHP (20 last year and 22 this year). They signed 14 last year.

It appears that the Yankees have concluded that they just cannot develop LHP in their system. Over the past 2 years, there have certianly been any number of good LHP available to them- but they have passed them by en masse.

Heck, the Yanks have drafted EIGHT C over the past two years- or one more C than LHP over the same span! Granted, the 3 they signed last year are really all but out of the system already- but at least two of this year's batch look like they will be sought strongly.

Another trend- of the hitters selected, especially the OF, most of them were selective hitters who generally walked as much or more than they K'd. Few of this year's draftees (except Howes from Louisville) have much of a big power track record (though Suttle showed decent power).

I am not sure that this is a good trend- while it reflects the Oakland A's philosphy on hitters, it is generally a good idea to draft players who at least have a "plus" hitting tool- be it power, speed, or just OBP. However, outside of maybe Suttle, I don't really see a "plus" tool hitter in the bunch.

Note that two years ago, the Yanks gambled on Austin Jackson- and he is only beginning to show dividends now. Henry flopped. Gardner flew through the system with plus-plus speed. Anson might be something at C.

Last year, they went after Curtis, Fortenberry and a lot of filler bats. Only Hilligoss could be considered a "plus" tool hitter- as scouts generally felt he would be a very good BA hitter (but no speed and no power). On the surface, it appears this year's draft is similar.

While the Yanks have had astounding success drafting RHP, I am somewhat worried about the philosophy regarding hitters in the system. Just like in card-playing, you can't hit the jackpot if you don't make a big bet once in a while. While I feel that Suttle should be a Hilligoss type success, the others don't really jump out at you.

Keep in mind too that HS C take a LONG time to develop- because they have so much to learn about the defensive and prep part of the position, they just don't move as quickly as college C do.

While I feel pretty good about the depth of the picks, and the big risks the Yanks took taking some HS and college guys who will be expensive signings (at least 2 draft eligible sophmores- Suttle and Murton), I wonder if the Yanks will look back on this draft and wonder if they should have been more aggressive pursuing the "plus" tool hitters?

i'd prefer sublett as a pitcher to a 2b.

Assuming that the Yanks sign most of the high-ceiling RHP they drafted this year, Sublett stands a better chance as a middle INF.

Besides, Sublett's arm issues this year probably rule out pitching this season anyway.

Another trend- note that the Yanks have drafted exactly 7 LHP in the last two years (only 1 this year). They also apparently only signed Dennehy (the D&F this year). I doubt they sign a 49th round HS LHP.


It appears that the Yankees have concluded that they just cannot develop LHP in their system. Over the past 2 years, there have certianly been any number of good LHP available to them- but they have passed them by en masse.

Heck, the Yanks have drafted EIGHT C over the past two years- or one more C than LHP over the same span! Granted, the 3 they signed last year are really all but out of the system already- but at least two of this year's batch look like they will be sought strongly.




Well, they should hire the necessary personnel to develop LHP, if this case is true.

"Another trend- of the hitters selected, especially the OF, most of them were selective hitters who generally walked as much or more than they K'd. Few of this year's draftees (except Howes from Louisville) have much of a big power track record (though Suttle showed decent power)."

Richard, I was all over that when it was happening and love the emphasis on plate discipline. Howes, Angelini, Suttle, and a bunch of the others including Romine also have good pop. I like this year's drafted hitters better than last year's. I thought they did a really good job there.

(counted Sublett as a 2B- likely where he will play)

One more note- of the Yanks D&F guys from last year- only Ladendorf was drafted- in the 33rd round by SF. BA claimed he turned down 6 figures from the Yanks- looks like his gamble didn't pay off.

Where are you hearing that about Sublett?

Yeah, Ladendorf...guess some teams must've figured that his upside is a pinch runner in late innings. And that's just not worth that much. Oh well. Seems like he may well be available as an undrafted free agent pretty soon if the NYY want to take another flier.

I think they were scared off by the tools guys because of Battle and Harris IMO.

I posted this in the signing thread but I'm going to put it here also because it's really a terrific source right now. Nomaas is gathering a lot of really good information re: signability. Check it out. http://nomaas.org/phpBB1/viewtopic.php?t=3733

Yes, that's what he's saying he wanted to do...that and spend what it takes to get every guy they draft

No, I'm just saying money should not be an issue when the Yankees decide they want to sign a player. I could care less how much it takes to get certain guys signed, if it takes a lot more then 6-7 mil then so be it.

Yeah, because I think the draft is underrated in terms of aquiring talent cheap. What a fantasy.

I fail to see the budget when a team can spend 26 mil on a posting fee on Igawa, and not think twice about it.

I mean really, what can the commish do? History says not much.

Will he really bump the Yanks if they sign all these kids.

This draft suggests they ain't scared.

Anyone think Porcello is going to go to UNC or sign with Detroit?

Detroit will have a stud rotation if they can get Porcello inked by Aug 15th

Verlander, Miller, Robertson, Porcello, Bonderman, Maroth

Porcello is probably 3 or 4 years away if he signs so a lot can change between now and then.

Because when the Yanks announced the pick (was listening on MLB.com), they drafted him as a 2B. Its also listed here:
