BA Top 25 and Draft Update

Baseball America is running a Midseason update to their Top 100 list and Tim Alderson ranked 19 and Madison Bumgarner ranked 25.

In addition, Pablo Sandoval was the catcher on the mid season all star all surprise team. 

I also emailed Andy Baggerly looking for draft updates.  I want to give a major shout out to Andy for always being so classy and willing to respond to Giants fans.  I have dealt with a number of reporters over the years and Andy strikes me as a genuinely good guy.  Here is his response;

"The Giants' first three picks all slipped past their projections so I'm sure Gillaspie and Kieschnick want more than slot. Not a surprise those are taking time. Same with the UCLA shortstop. He was projected as a first-rounder before having a terrible season. I'd be surprised if any of them fail to sign, but we've got a long, long time before the deadline. Even if they aren't signed before Aug. 1, I wouldn't worry. The Giants cant afford not to sign them.

One note: Tyler Thompson has said he will go to the University of Florida."
