Luhnow gives Draft update

With about two hours to go before they made their first pick in the First-Year Player Draft, general manager Jeff Luhnow on Thursday provided a brief update for the media.

“It’s a lot easier for me than it is for [scouting director] Mike [Elias] and the gang upstairs,” Luhnow said. “They’re still working through a lot of details. We’re touching base with a lot of players and their advisors and families and trying to get a sense for well beyond tonight, really, where everybody is. We’re getting medical updates on all our players, and we’ll still talking through our board. The work will continue up until 6:07 when we make our pick.”

Luhnow wouldn’t say if they’ve narrowed the list down from the six they were at a few days ago.

“We working on it,” he said. “As you get closer, you start to focus on fewer and fewer players, and we’ll have it down to one in a couple of hours.”

Brian, yes, it’s a lot of  time on the draft, but they want to be sure they are not losing money on these guys, and can play the game at this level !!!       Ralph
