Yankees waiting to make first pick

I saw many mock drafts that had the Yankees taking Florida 1B Matt LaPorta. So much for that, he went 7th to Milwaukee. Why they took an advanced college hitter with Prince Fielder already at 1B, I have no idea.

The Yankees could get a break and get one of the northeast high school RHPs fall to them. We shall see. I suspect they will take a college player, however. They need immediate help at several positions.

I find it amusing that Steve Phillips is analyzing the picks for ESPN. The Mets had a series of awful drafts and built a terrible farm system on his watch.
