    I'd imagine it depends on if they pay him like a much higher round pick.

    Hey guys, I just off the phone with Kevin Mahoney, the third-baseman from Canisius. He said he's signing a contract tomorrow and he's 99.9% sure he'll be playing with Staten Island.

    Woo-hoo!

    Should also be said, one of the nicest guys I've talked to.

    How exactly do you know him? It seems with this draft that people on this board have some relationships with drafties. Maybe we can have another a guy like Mr. Horne one day?

    I will be updating the roster page of Baby-Bombers.com when I get new information on players signing.

    They've signed a few of their better LHP which is really good. Now just start signing those power hitters and our system will slowly lose their biggest holes

    I don't. I'm interning with PP.com and had to do his draft interview. The entire interview should be up over there soon, along with Brett Gerritise (sp?) which I also just did.

    I've seen this kid play hockey when he played at Cornell, and I can tell you the kid is a major grinder with great quickness and hand eye coordination, I haven't seen him hit or play the outfield, but this kid, although short, is a strong athlete.

    Re: 2009 Yankee Draft Pick Signings

    Look, some signings are easy to predict- for example, those who are 4th or 5th year college seniors- they are out of eligibility and have zero leverage. They usually sign quickly- and are the most likely to sign. The following were "senior signs" this year:

    Adam Warren (4th round)
    Samuel Elam (8th round)
    Luke Murton (19th round)
    Richard Soignier (22nd round)
    Kevin Mahoney (23rd round)
    Isaac Harrow (24th round)
    Jeffery Farnham (27th round)
    Ben Watkins (40th round)

    While Patrick White is a senior, I doubt he signs as he has a HUGE NFL learning curve coming up- he can't waste time playing baseball this summer if he wants to be a starter in Miami.

    The next group are the older college juniors- the ones who are already 21/22 years old and likely cannot afford to wait to start their careers if they don't want to be a senior sign with little job stability. In other words, they are already the same age (or older) than "true" college seniors. They are VERY likely to sign. This year's group includes:

    Caleb Cotham (5th rounder)
    Robert Lyerly (6th rounder)
    Deangelo Mack (13th rounder)- he's already 22- will be 23 in November
    Graham Stoneburner (14th rounder)
    John Ebert (32nd round)
    Justin Milo (37th rounder)
    Anthony Plagman (46th rounder)- believe it or not, Plagman is actually 11 days OLDER than Warren.

    Just for comparison purposes, realize that Lyerly is OLDER than Adam Warren- and Cotham is only 3 months younger than Warren. Stoneburner is also only 1 month younger than Warren, while Ebert is only 2 moths younger.

    After that, you have the picks that the Yanks can't regain- the 1st and 2nd rounders that they got for not signing Cole or the other guy last year. They took Heathcott and Murphy with those picks. If they don't sign them, they don't get a comp pick next year for them (and since comp picks only apply to the first 3 rounds, and the Yanks had no 3rd rounder, they have no chance of comp picks for not signing a player next year). That means both Heathcott and Murphy will be signed, at whatever price is necessary.

    The remaining guys are all about what bonus gets offered them. However, the majority, if not all of the above listed players, will be signed.

    Cotham and Stoneburner may be older, but they're DES guys, so they're not as easy as you make it out to be.

    Bomber B,

    Thanks for setting this up and taking ownership of updating for everyone.

    Is it possible to add another column for "Date of Signing".

    I know you're bolding signed players - it just easier to notice the new ones that way - especially as they keep rolling in.

    Thanks.

    Interesting draft breakdown:

    49 Total Players

    13 HS
    7 JC/CC
    29 College

    24 P, 25 Positional Players

    8 LHP (1 HS, 1 JC/CC, 6 Col)
    16 RHP (7/2/7)

    4 C (1/0/3)
    6 1B/3B (0/1/5)
    4 2B/SS (1st selection 22nd round) - (1/1/2)
    11 OF (4/2/5)

    Given you should never draft for need, it is interesting the # of college players selected and the breakdown of positions - especially the large # of OF's and the lack of middle IF's. Glad to also see an increase in the # of LHP.

    Re: 2009 Yankee Draft Pick Signings

    I have a good feeling about Stoneburner, Heathcott, and maybe Mack too.
    On the other hand, you have different fingers.

    Mack is pretty much a no-doubter, as is Heathcott to a degree.
