Top 2-3 round talent in the 8th round with no signability issues.

My bad, I deleted the post to avoid any confusion.

They go over Broadway a bit and note that the last college RHP we selected in the first round was Kip Wells.

Here is a small portion...

In recent drafts, the White Sox had concentrated on position players, especially stocking up on outfielders. They appear to have done well with lefthanded pitching in the 2004 draft, selecting Gio Gonzalez, Ray Liotta, Tyler Lumsden and Wes Whisler.

Broadway is represented by the firm of Reich, Katz and Landis. While the White Sox hope to sign him quickly, they will have to be careful in handling him this season. He worked 117 innings for TCU.

Before Broadway, TCU had never had a first-round pick. The highest had been infielder Fred Benavides, who went to Cincinnati in the second round of the 1987 draft.


• Shaffer admitted that catching was a priority for the Sox entering the draft but they had no chance to get Southern California’s Jeff Clement, who went third overall to the Mariners, and passed on Texas' Taylor Teagarden, who is represented by agent Scott Boras. The White Sox did not take a catcher in the first day of the draft.

• The White Sox added another college quarterback, picking Michigan's Clayton Richard. A backup for the Wolverines football team, he dominated as a lefthanded reliever on the baseball team. The Sox had previously selected Joe Borchard from Stanford and Josh Fields from Oklahoma State.

Today in the Cubune they said Chirino (the kid from Miami) quit the team about a month ago because of a dispute with his coach.

Not that it really means all that much. The kid who is number 1, Schiff from Evansville Mater Dei, couldn't even play at Indiana St.

Great pick for the Sox with #15. This kid is for real. All y'all will see...
