Two of the guys I caught in high school were drafted, one by the Reds and the other by the A's, the one drafted by the A's never made it and retired at 28. I corrected the typo in my original post where I duplicated the same thing, after taking a phone call and losing my train of thought.

easy tiger......

I'm pretty sure it is just one guy. I don't want to speak for Daver, but I think he just looked at the way he had it typed out the first time, didn't like how he phrased it, re-typed it, and forget to delete the one he intended to omit.


EDIT:Well, I was close I guess.

I'm going to chime in on this discussion with how I feel about Rasner. To me he is the same type of guy that Daniel Cortes was to our system(BTW, the royaleswithcheese blog myspace article on him is hilarious if you haven't read it). One of the young kids who you like to have because of their projectable frame, and a good arm. Someone who is a bit raw in their pitchability, but has the tools that can be worked with. He also has a good bloodline, so that is another plus.

Excellent comparison, that's exactly who I was thinking of when this thread started...
