    possible Jake Locker ( drafted by the Angels) or Deon Sanders situation where they give him a ton of cash to play baseball in the spring to mid summer, and he will play football in the Fall-Winter

    hes been drafted like 3 times before this i think by the angels twice and the reds once and now again by the Yankees. They way it looks to me is he wants to play football and i doubt hell be playing baseball.

    I just saw on an ESPN First Take interview with Ronnie Brown that he was drafted by the Mariners in 2000.

    Seems like a wasted pick to me...I think 48th round of a baseball draft...

    is close to worthless.

    Maybe Rex Ryan made the pick.

    You are joking right? There is nothing that Pat White has to choose between, he is a football player, not a baseball player. It was the 48th ROUND, not the 48th pick.

    My question is, who the hell is Mr. Irrelevant in the MLB Draft. Is he like the last pick in Round 500 or what??

    A waste of a pick if you ask me. Seems a little weird that they try to keep drafting these guys over and over. Since they know he will be playing Football.

    Too bad the Marlins didn't pick him. I think the Yankees did that just to piss off Miami fans.

    I don't think a 48th round pick is that much of a waste. :chuckle:

    As a Yankees/Dolphins fan, I'm going to objectively say that the Yankees need bullpen help more than the Dolphins need a trick quarterback.
    So, you know what, time to hone your pitching skills Pat.

    It was probably just to get his rights if he decided to play. In the 48th round it doesn't matter much.

    I guess this is your dream come true then... an awesome player drafted by both of your favorite teams! No matter which one he ends up playing for (likely the Dolphins) you win!

    CK....Being a long time Mets fan...I'm always happy to see the Yankee's lose out on players! :D

    But it's always sweeter when you can screw the Yankees and Boston at the same time....:up:

    actually, it's not that bad of an idea. Bo Jackson played baseball after he couldn't play football any longer. same could happen to White.

    baseball players tend to have longer careers as well. White could play football until 35 and then check out a second career.

    Why would the Yankees draft him? Did he even play baseball at WVU?

    He'd end up being an outfielder in the mold of a BJ Upton if he played, but hes not going to.

    Athletic ability, I assume. He would be a project.

    It's like when NFL teams sign those 6-foot-10 power forwards in college basketball and want them to be the next Antonio Gates

    Its not like it matters who the Yankees pick.

    Whens the last time they developed their own prospects anyway?
    They just pay money for the best FA available, or trade for them.

    the mold of bj upton? are you serious, you're comparing a number 1 baseball draft pick to a 48th round football quarterback? pat white couldn't hold upton's jock strap in a baseball game. much less provoke a comparison.

    But you see it is the truth they have been continually ranked in the upper half of the organization farm system rankings from baseball america since 2006, they were 5th going into last season and dropped down this year to 15th ( boston dropped too) thans in large part to the graduation of Joba Chamberlain and others. Considering we dont pick in the bottom half of the draft every year like the marlins, who have to continually sell their talent because their owners are too cheap to keep them, MEANWHILE pocketing the money they receive from the rich teams, and cant seem to draw any fans.

    i'm not saying marlins fans are the most loyal in baseball. the marlins front office has done an INCREDIBLE job considering the resources they have available. the shankees have nothing but endless resources and simply can't get over the hump. the yankees are a complete disgrace to baseball. i don't remember any marlins getting caught doing steroids...gayrod, giambi, pettite etc are all dirty scum!

    You as a Yankee fan have to admit this is completely skewed.

    Yankees prospects essentially never see the field, because they have an overpaid player at basically every position.

    They have an absolutely great roster (talent/name wise) which is nearly impossible for talented prospects (except pitchers) to break into the starting lineup.

    Just for a record I really don't have anything against the Yankees, but its very hard to argue they develop prospects through their system to their lineup.
