Via this mailbag comes some word on the Yanks draft picks. According to Peter Abraham, Scott Boras, agent for Andrew Brackman, the Yanks’ number one pick, is confident the two sides will reach a deal before next Wednesday’s deadline. Abraham also notes a rumor we’ve heard for a while: The Yanks and Carmen Angelini (10th round) have come to terms on a deal for which MLB is delaying approval due, unsurprisingly, to the fact that the Yanks are well over slot. Angelini had been ticketed for Rice before the Yanks’ wallet intervened.
