This Schwindenhammer Guy Seems a Bit Old…


Hey, far be it from me to criticize Theo Epstein and his scouting director Jason McLeod, whose recent results have been spectacular in the MLB draft, but I’m a little concerned about their 5th round selection of Seth Schwindenhammer. While I love the name and the early reviews were that he was a good pick, I still have my doubts, raised mostly by this little information capsule from the Boston Globe.

I mean, I’m sure Schwindenhammer is a great guy, but at 81 years old I feel its likely that his best days are behind him. Add in a minimum 2-3 years in the minors and you’re looking at an 84-85 year old rookie and I just don’t know how he could handle the 162 game grind. Also, why is this guy only JUST finishing high school, what has he been doing!?
