Link-O-Rama: No. 10 pick signs before draft is over
* Craig wasn’t kidding about the Nationals having little trouble getting No. 10 overall pick Drew Storen under contract. The draft isn’t even over yet and he’s already agreed to terms on a deal, with an official announcement coming this afternoon.
If the Nationals have him skip the low minors and go directly to Double-A or Triple-A, that’s a pretty strong indication that the former Stanford closer could be in Washington during the second half.
* Based on this picture it looks like the Braves fanbase may finally be turning on Jeff Francoeur, who’s hitting .240/.289/.354 with 15 homers, a 144/48 K/BB ratio, and 576 glowing Atlanta Journal Constitution articles since the beginning of last season.
* It sounds like the incredibly frustrating and unproductive Yuniesky Betancourt era may be coming to an end in Seattle and the boys at U.S.S. Mariner couldn’t be happier.
* Last night the Dodgers won their 10,000th game as a franchise.
