If he didn't sign (which he didn't) and went to college (not sure if he did or didn't), he's not eligible to be drafted again until 2011.

I know hardly anyone that was in the farm at that time went on to do something meaningful, and those that did were not expected to (Buehrle, Rowand, with Crede as the exception). Goes to show that just because you have a highly ranked farm is no guarantee of anything.


Which is all well and good....if you weren't allowed to trade.

You are...thus percieved value is important (as is knowing when to cash it in)

KW is so-so in this respect (though much better than a guy like Jim Hendry who is downright terrible in that respect - Felix Pie could have been the centerpiece of a deal to get a good player...instead he an afterthought)

He played somewhere this year downstate. He's eligible to be drafted again.
