Tribe Sign First Round Pick ChisenhallToday the Indians came to terms with their first round pick Lonnie Chisenhall.
The controversy surrounding Chisenhall is his character issues. Bud Grant speaks..
"We've gone above and beyond doing our research," scouting director Brad Grant said on Draft day. "We very much value makeup; we very much value character. Every person that we talked to spoke very highly about Lonnie's character." (Indians.com)
Great.. There was talks of just not signing him.. Oh well, we shall see how the 19 year old progresses. He is still young and has a lot to learn.
By the by, the boards have received a total upgrade.. Check it out.. 2008 picks are listed, theres a $ next to the player if they've signed.. I have added extended spring training(with Mahnonig Valley starting soon though, that shall become useless.) to keep track of all the Indians players. Also added a DSL Indian Roster for reference..
Also a little note to pass along.. Jorge Julio was picked up by the Braves.. So, his stint is officially over.
