Welcome to YANKEE UNIVERSE" Brady. Now, repeat after me..."Boston...(well you know what word comes next)." Great to have you as a member of the greatest team in sports. 27 and counting. Please, talk to the rings, people.

congratulations ....however Brandy needs to be ready for a long hard churn in the minor leagues. A ball then AA ball then possibly AAA ball. It can take 5 or more years to grind your way through. I would advise any young player who isn't drafted in the first two rounds to instead get a full ride college scholarship in baseball and go that route. Get your degree while improving your baseball skills then perhaps jump into the minor leagues and see what happens.

Yes, get a scholarship for a degree. Just watched Moneyball - makes you think about how not everything turns out for this young athletes down the road. There is more to life then sports. I still don't get all the hype but well done in excelling in your sport.

What happened to the Porter kid out of Spanish Fork? He was never drafted?

Almost no one gets a "full ride" baseball scholarship. They only get a percentage. While your sentiment might be correct your knoweldge, or lack of it, is once again on full display.


What none of you know is that most kids taken in the first 20 rounds get there bonus plus get school paid for. So if they put the school money away they have a full ride that they can use anytime. No one gets a full ride to play baseball, 80 percent is about as good as it gets.

Only 10% of kids drafted every play a inning at the major league level. Not great odds. If you get the right signing bonus it's worth a chance as you can always use the cash after baseball to improve your life through education or a business investment. Best of luck, Brady.
