    Not sure that's a 17yr old but let the hype begin.

    He's 17 now. That picture was taken in 2001. You do that math genius.

    Interesting tidbit on Gerrit Cole. Had he not attended private school (Orange Lutheran), he would have gone to Foothill High in Santa Ana. That is the alma mater of one Phil Hughes.

    I spoke to a scout today who said the Yankees were taking no risk whatsoever in terms of talent. Cole is tall, strong and the best high-school arm in the draft. But some scouts, he said, think Cole is spoiled and too arrogant.

    Damon Oppenheimer said Cole simply hates to lose. Itíll be interesting to see how he handles pro ball. At one point or another, everybody gets humbled. Just ask Hughes.

    Oppenheimer said signability is the last factor in how he makes his decisions. That means the Yankees plan to do whatever it takes. Scott Boras will be seeking something along the lines of what Rick Porcello got from the Tigers last season ($3.3 million). Cole is not Porcello but heíll get a significant bonus.

    This will be one of those last-second announcements.

    Here are links to some interesting stories from the Orange County Register:

    A pre-draft story.

    His senior year stats are here. In a word: sick.

    A story on his last h.s. game, a 1-0 loss.

    And in case you missed it earlier, hereís the audio of the conference call he did with the New York writers:

    Gotta sign him first.

    Yankees are inconsistent, and rather boring. I'd rather talk about this stuff.

    actually i agree with you there. new york baseball is the epitome of terrible this year. i can't even bring myself to watch the games a smuch as i used to in the past. it's just aggravating to watch supposedly professional players turn in mediocre performance after mediocre performance.

    I agree about the season as a whole, absolutely, but there was nothing boring about today
