    Then I take Jordan. That swing is a thing of beauty.

    I think Snatch is right. Evan's sudden committment to St. Petersburgh ain't exactly Stanford. Jordan is the son of a professional athlete who is used to making demands and negotiating.

    I do think we will be able to go "over budget" if some of the summer follows justify it.

    We must sign him. How often do we get a shot at a canadian boxing, hockey player with an awesome name?

    I don't know much about Mason Williams - does anyone know more about him?

    If it comes down to it, I want Jordan and Rutckyj the most out of our signability cases.

    The budget is much higher than slot. It was close to eight million last year. We should be able to get many of these guys signed.

    If you go by what Oppenheimer stated about the budget being about the same as last year, the budget is probably around 8M.

    Same here, but it's just since I'd like to see more legit bats in the system.

    It's the same thing with the Astros, this website gave them A- for the "big names" that they picked. They picked some good guys and were in all the pre-draft type stuff but I don't think their draft was all that deep.

    Sorry for my rant but I just think that this ranking and others are just bad because they all base the prospects off of BA and other stuff like that

    Also, always a good idea to give a grade days after the draft, regardless of who actually signs, and how they eventually do. BA doesn't even bother with this kind of BS. They at least wait until after the season to do a (very) preliminary analysis.

    Per RAB, "Paul O’Neill said during tonight’s broadcast that his nephew Mike (42nd rounder) is probably going to follow through on his commitment to Michigan. He apparently injured his shoulder right before the draft and needs surgery. It was a nepotism pick anyway."

    To say the least as it initially got a rise out of me.

    Culver riles Yankee Fans:

    Yankees scouting director Damon Oppenheimer understands his team's fans are passionate. They want their club to flex their financial muscle and outspend everyone in terms of major league payroll, in the international market and in the draft. So when New York used the No. 32 overall choice on Irondequoit High (Rochester, N.Y.) shortstop Cito Culver, who was rated No. 168 by BA, he knew fans would be upset.

    But he also took the player he wanted. He doesn't care about fan reaction or BA's Top 200. What matters more is the Yankees sent several veteran scouts to evaluate Culver, who played on their Area Code Games team, and they loved him.

    "Our draft list was formulated by a group of scouts with 100 combined years of scouting experience," says Oppenheimer, who notes that another team told him it would have selected Culver before New York's second-round pick. "I'm running in guys there left and right, and every single guy came out of their liking him. He's a shortstop with a 65 arm (on the 20-80 scouting scale) and above-average speed, and we liked the way he swung the bat from both sides of the plate. He wasn't one of the 'names,' but he was one of ours."

    Johnson had said he was probably headed to college. Guess he changed his mind.

    As for the Yankees, well, as usual they are really psyched up about all their picks, particularly their No. 1, 6-2, 175-pound switch-hitting high school shortstop Cito Culver from Rochester, who they're hoping will be Derek Jeter's eventual successor, and Mason Williams, an athletic 6-1, 160-pound Florida high school center fielder who they got in the fourth round. Most scouts regarded Williams as a first-rounder but teams backed off on the belief he was going to accept a scholarship to South Carolina. Williams' biggest asset is his blazing speed, although the Yankees believe he'll develop some power when he grows into his body and can be a Carl Crawford type.

    Williams a 1st round talent? That sounds exciting...
