Draft Day II
Our scouting department was thrilled with how Day 1 of the draft went with the Sox picking LSU OF Jared Mitchell with our first round pick.
The first number KW called to reach Jared actually went to his home. Jared’s father answered, and after seeing the caller ID, enthusiastically said … “Chicago White Sox.”
When KW tracked down Jared with his next call to contgratulate him and welcome him to the organization, KW asked, “Have you talked to your dad yet?”
Jared said his phone had just blown up with calls and that he hadn’t had a chance to catch his dad yet.
“Call your dad,” Williams told him. “Talk to your dad.”
The draft continued today, with plans to cover rounds 4-30. That makes for a very long day in the draft “War Room.”
“I pulled into my garage at 12:45 am,” one of our staff said, “and we were back here at 7:30 a.m.”
An annual draft sight is to see a entire board filled with hundreds of magnetic strips containing player names
Robin Ventura, making his annual visit in support of Prostate Cancer Awareness, and Frank Thomas, interviewing some of the Sox for his new gig at Comcast Sports Net (Frank is providing the channel with special coverage during the upcoming Cubs/Sox clash), will both be at the ballpark tonight.
It will be good to catch up …
