Today begins the long and largely opaque process that is the MLB draft. Here’s where our respective teams are picking in rounds 1-4:
Yanks: 21, 41, 104, 134
Sox: 27, 28, 40, 44, 71, 83, 103, 133
The Yanks pay for their free-agent signings of Damon and Farns, but get the highest choice courtesy of the Phils (TGo). Boston also gets a pick for losing Bill Mueller. Sox have a 7-4 early round advantage. We’ll see what they make of it—in about 5 years.
