In a word, awesome. I can't wait to hear Gene Honda announcing Beckham's name over the PA at the Cell in 2010.

Even though we've had infielders drafted in the past who were supposed to be the next big thing (Jason Dellaero, how ya doin'?), I think Beckham is going to be someone special for the Sox.

Get him up to the South Side so he can make UGA proud!

This is great news. It will be interesting following his progress through the end of this year while he's at Kanny.

It's nice to be excited once more about a minor league prospect in the Sox organization.

Nice job, would have been interesting to see if he would have been drafted if the CWS was before the draft. After tearing it up there, I'm excited to see his development.

I think you mean to say: it would be interesting to see where he would have been drafted if the CWS was before the draft.

I thought that throughout the CWS, because I DVR-ed all his games because I wanted to see him play. In my mind, the Sox were lucky no one picked Beckham before them, because the Sox were always reported to be interested in him and he was projected anywhere from 6th to 8th in predraft mocks. And after seeing him play, I'm really glad the draft was before the CWS because I think he would have been picked before the Sox based on his performances in the CWS if the draft happened after the CWS.
