The Yankee beat: draft edition

What’s going on around here? The Yankees got back to back amazing starts from Andy Pettitte and Ivan Nova. They are still half a game out, but their +33 is the best run differential in the AL East. It’s like they are a good team or something. Here is the recap and graph. That’s Ty Hensley (1st round) in the pic above. He hasn’t signed yet, but he looks excited to be joining the Yankees.

Here are the first 30 players the Yankees drafted that I have profiled so far. I’ll have 31-40 tomorrow.
