2004 Draft for the Yanks/Rain Delay
Charleston starter tonight is Brett Smith, a second round pick of the Yankees back in 2004. He just celebrated his 26th birthday. He had shoulder issues in 2007 and missed the entire 2008 season after surgery. In ’07, he pitched well in Trenton (AA).
I went back to look at the second round of the 2004 First Year Player Draft to see some of the guys picked after Smith, who was the first pick of the second round. I scroll down to pick #65 and its the Yanks’ arch-rival Boston. Guess who they picked…Dustin Pedroia, not a bad pick, huh. Some of the other picks in the second round included: Hunter Pence (64, Houston) and Curtis Thigpen (57, Toronto).
Thought that might interest some of you…
We are in a rain delay (7:05 PM)
