Yankees Sign Sam Stafford

The Yankees have finally come to terms with second round pick Sam Stafford,  He is a left handed pitcher out of Texas.  For info on his contract and a scouting report go here.  I would imagine that Stafford will be sent to Staten Island since his is out of college.  I would expect to see him start to show up in the 2011 Draftee updates in the next few days.  Good to see the Yankees signing more of their draft picks especially those drafted in the higher rounds.

Since this contract leaked, Stafford has yet to play in a game and isn't listed on any Yankee roster.  He has also been turned back to unsigned on the Baseball America list.  Therefore, I am not sure what is going on with Stafford.  When I hear anything I'll update this post.

Update:
Stafford did not sign with the Yankees.  As the signing deadline passed last night I have gotten official word that Stafford was not signed by the Yankees and will return to Texas.

Sailing Adventure

Dear Readers,
I am going on a 3 day sailing excursion with a friend from college and therefore will be away from my computer for the next few days. There will be no updates until most likely Friday when I will do them for the entire week.
See you Friday
