I hope the Jays sign him quickly and send him to Auburn so I can see him play. I'm excited about this guy.

seems like JP went a complete 180 in terms of approaching this draft, going with the power-hitting high schooler....seems like a good choice i suppose, though we'll have to wait a good couple of years....

Aside from the odd name, I really know nothing about the MLB draft. I could tell you nearly every name that will be drafted in this year's NBA draft. I could name most of players drafted in the NFL draft. And I'd even do better than most with the NHL entry draft.

I hope JP was right.

But hey, anyone remember Todd Van Poppel?

Jays select Fernandez's son in draft
Jun. 8, 2006. 01:00 AM
ALLAN RYAN
SPORTS REPORTER

The Blue Jays wound up with a total of eight high school-level players among their 48 selections in the annual first-year player draft and the last one they took might have been as interesting as the first.

On Tuesday, with the 14th overall pick, the Jays selected Travis Snider, an 18-year-old, left-handed-hitting outfielder out of Jackson High in Everett, Wash.

Yesterday, with their 46th of 48 picks, they took an 18-year-old shortstop out of American Heritage High in Westin, Fla., named Jonathan Fernandez. Yes, the middle son of ex-Jay Tony Fernandez.

Yeah, I've heard about Snyder because I am an Auburn fan. He's a very good player

MLB's lack of exposure to the media light, it's not like any of these players will come straight into the league and pull a Lebron. It's interesting though because there always seems to be a few Canadians that get drafted moreso then the NBA draft.... and there have been some Canadians in the last couple of years that got drafted in the top 10. I would rank baseball and basketball in Canada as around the same in terms of number of people playing it. Do Canadian baseball players get more exposure to American colleges then basketball players?

Good question. I think a lot of it has to do with what kind of recreational programs there are in your city. When I was growing up everyone played baseball because the leagues where set-up for you from tee-ball through rep-AAA. You could just play house league or try out for a better team whenever you wanted. Also you got to play ball at your school for a few months.

With basketball, well there where no leagues in my area. I joined a YMCA league when I was in grade six but it sucked because I was playing against kids as young as grade four and three. Also I was there to get better, and the Y was a just for fun league. Mind you the coaching I recieved in HS was better in basketball than it was baseball.

I just remeber a couple of years ago, a coach paying for a buddy's house and food so he would play for him, doesn't seem like that's here for basketball.

MB is right though, there's always a few Canadians drafted, usually one pretty high, which is great because we are (I think) seeing more Canadian baseball players in the majors.

That's true my uncle was drafted back in the '80's, so it can't be that hard.

The Dodgers drafted Mike Piazza with the last pick in the MLB draft as a favor to Tommy Lasorda...I'd say they got a bit of a steal there.

Jays sign top pick

By MIKE GANTER




Travis Snider said the day he was selected he wasn't going to be a tough sign, and yesterday he delivered.

The Jays announced the signing of Snider, their first-round selection and 14th pick overall in the draft.

Snider batted .500 with a school record 11 homers and 45 RBIs for Jackson High School which went on to win the Washington State Championship. Snider was signed by Brandon Mozley, who covers Northern California, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Montana, and Arkansas for the Jays. Snider is the first high school first-round selection by the Jays since Miguel Negron was picked 18th overall in 2000.

The Jays signed four picks from the 2006 draft as well including RHP Brandon Magee, their fourth round pick, infielder Scott Campbell, their 10th round selection , infielder Jonathan Diaz who went in the 12th round and RHP Zach Dials, a 28th round pick.

The Jays have now agreed to terms with 29 or their 48 selections in addition to four undrafted free agents.
