Red Sox draft Matt Barnes with 19th pick overall

The amateur draft started yesterday. Besides the exciting news of drafting a decent looking pitcher, Matt Barnes (see below) in the first round as well as a switch hitting catcher Blake Swihart, the first round and supplemental first round featured a couple of interesting notes. Specifically, Tampa had a total of 9 picks in the first 60 and New York had 1, Dante Bichette Jr.. No joke.

  1. I like it. I think he was a Yankee fan growing up. Oh well,'fuck it.

    And they will pony up big $$$ for the catcher.
