Actually Joba isn't very fat at all anymore. He was in college. But not since he came to the Yankees orginization. He just a big guy now. Shed some fat and started working out and put about 3-4 mph on his fastball.

Most of the young guys selected have proven something in the MLB already. I think most of the picks have been pretty good.

I think thats the way MLB is now. There aren't a lot of great pitchers in the 30-35 year range. We have a lot of guys in their primes in their late 20's who are all taken already. And then there are the up and comers who look to be special. There are still some very good pitchers over 35 but at that age, I'd expect them to last longer in this draft.
