  1. I moved all of this info from the top of the blog to it’s own post. When you click on the 2007 draft tag under “features”, this post will remain at the top, so it will be easy to find the info.

  2. hey James, I just checked back here and noticed that a bunch of the late signings aren’t noted (like Sampson, Johnson and Slate), and that some of the article links are down (I assume this is probably because the pages have expired). I know personally that each year around draft time, I like to go back and review the outcomes of previous drafts, and seeing as how the draft as a whole is such a key part of the player development process and of all the work that you do on this site, I was wondering what you might think about making the draft link at the top of the page function for all the drafts and not just the current year’s. I think it would be pretty great to have an easily accessible and complete draft history of at least the past several years with all the signing information, links to stats for players in the system, and possibly even links to the college profile pages of the players who went unsigned.

  3. Ive got some plans on making the draft sections a bit better, but I have a lot of different things I want to do with the site, and my time is quite finite right now.

  4. Workman just threw a no hitter at Texas. 2 starts so far this year, 16 innings, 2 hits, no runs, 17 ks
