More on the MLB Draft


For those of you too cool for school and so are not following along the incredibly fun conference call that is the remainder of the draft, you’re missing out on some great stuff such as:

  • The Red Sox taking Seth Schwindenhammer with the 168th pick, if he makes the majors he would take the title away from Jarrod Saltalamachia for the longest last name in MLB history.
  • Patrick Schuster, he of the 4 straight no-hitters, was taken number 396 by the Diamondbacks.
  • The 14th round features such awesome names as Chadwick Bell (424, Rangers), Casio Grider (427, Dodgers), Sequoyah Stonecipher (428, Marlins) (my favorite) and Graham Stoneburner (435, Yankees)
  • The Oakland Athletics took Josh Leyland out of San Dimas High School, I wonder if the town has a statue for Bill and Ted yet. San Dimas High football RULES!
  • In the 15th round the Red Sox take current bullpen fire-baller Daniel Bard’s younger brother, Luke Bard, a RHP out of high school, gotta love those bloodlines!
  • There are a whole lot of junior colleges around this country, even more amazing, they all seem to have baseball programs. What’s the deal there? Is it just a relatively cheap sport to be able to support or is is because the NCAA doesn’t care about baseball because it doesn’t make it money?
  • Several of the teams have a woman’s voice making their picks, does this mean the old boys club is going away? Do I need to become a woman to get a job in baseball, because I’ll consider it…
  • With pick 544, the Rangers take Michael Schaaf. SHUT YO’ MOUTH. But I was just talking about Schaaf… And we can dig it.
