And Bristol...

Some interesting names: Aaron Poreda starts his career at Great Falls, where he'll team with high college picks Leroy Hunt (4) and Johnnie Lowe (6) in the pitching staff and our highest drafted 2007 position player (7) James Gallagher. Another guy to watch may be Christian Marrero, the older brother of the Nats first-rounder last year. Also, it's the return of Salvador Sanchez to short season. Hopefully one step backward will help him take one step forward. The double play combo Miranda and Mollenhauer are supposed to be grinders.

At Bristol, Venezuelan OF Jose Martinez makes his US debut. If I'm not mistaken he is the son of late Sox third baseman Carlos Martinez. Other notables are Korean righthander Po-Yu Lin, 2006 eighth rounder Kent Gerst and another 13 international players, including one Jesus Loera who was born in January 1989, making him I believe the youngest player on any Sox roster.

I'm beginning to think that's code for "can't hit".

Actually, it's code for "short." Both of them were considered to be pretty good players who could have gone a few rounds higher. Neither projects as Hanley Ramirez, though, so they get the grinder label.

does anyone have a list of 2007 draftees who have been signed/unsigned as of now?

Signed players in bold. Not sure how often they update this.

That's the best list although there are quite a few that are not in there yet. I'm interested to see if we'll sign some of our mid-round (9th, 10th) high school players. We have really struggled over the past few years letting guys like Donald Veal and Wes Helms get away. That can make the difference between a decent draft and a very good draft.
