Phew

I had my doubts, but the Royals did the right thing. They drafted Alex Gordon. I think we'll see him as a September call-up in 2006 and hopefully as a fixture in the Royal lineup by the start of 2007. Two questions:

1) What position will he play? Will he displaced Teahen at 3B or will they move him to the outfield?

2) How long will it take to get him signed?

Royals take Jeffrey Bianchi, high school SS with the 2nd pick in the second round. Can't say I know anything about him, but from what I can cull he sounds like an athletic but relatively raw talent. The Minor League Ball mock draft had him going in the 5th round and John Sickels calls the choice a "surprise".

I love how fast the baseball draft moves.

I have speculated that Bianchi was drafted for his signability. Perhaps so the Royals can swallow Gordon's signing bonus?
