Auburn players in the MLB draft

Hey everyone.

Drafts are unpredictable. That's the only way I can explain how OF Trent Mummey, an excellent center fielder, was selected ahead of 1B Hunter Morris in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft this afternoon.

Mummey went 118th overall to the Baltimore Orioles.

Morris, the SEC's Player of The Year, went 129th overall (fourth round) to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Several more Tigers will be drafted in the coming hours.

COMMENTS FROM MUMMEY:
** This was what he said after being asked about this season: ``After last night, when we lost in front of all those fans, it was really hard to take that Auburn jersey off. We had a lot of expectations this year. We wanted to go out a little further. The great group of guys we had really brought out the Auburn family for baseball. These past couple games were really great. It was really special to be able to experience that before this season ended. We brought back a winning tradition to Auburn.

``If this is my last year at Auburn, it's definitely the way I'd like to have gone out. It was really exciting to experience all the things I did. Coming back from my injury was really tough. At the beginning of the year, you have a lot of expectation for the draft. A week before the season, it was taken away. It was tough. I experienced a little depression there for a little bit. I was a little upset."

** On motivation after missing 28 games: ``I was doing it for the Auburn family. I felt like I had a lot to give to Auburn. Missing 28 games, I felt like I had to give a lot to the team."

COMMENTS FROM MORRIS:
** General comments: ``I had high hopes that it would happen earlier, but I'm in a great situation with a great organization with the Brewers. They had a lot of interest out of high school. I had a lot if conversations with them this year. I knew they were in the mix. It wasn't really a surprise to me that they were the ones who jumped forward and took me there."

** On learning that he'd been drafted: ``I was driving to my apartment. I was on the phone with my dad and we were sitting there with raised eyebrows wondering: What's going on? Then he told me: ``Congratulations." I'm relieved for it to be over with. It's behind us now."

I am loving this expansion talk. It appears Texas has become the prostitute of NCAA football, willing to sell themselves to the highest bidder. Throw the Texas legislature packaging in the other Texas schools into the deal and it becomes even more interesting. Texas should have long ago formed the Texas Conference, with Texas only schools.

Colorado the first to bolt?

5:31 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Should Colorado jump to the Pac10 early, it would make the move of Texas to the Pac10 less likely considering the other schools they would want to bring along.

Texas coming to the SEC seems very unlikely if it meant bringing in A&M, Tech, and Baylor.

There is a pretty good PF that Barbee is trying to get in as a transfer from UTEP. Schools such as Texas and Kentucky also want his services.

I really like the Iphone, but the ATT network is a no go for me.

I'm sad Auburn baseball is over, I actually enjoyed following them this year, I wish I would have gone to more games when I was at Auburn.

In other news, the Rays won 9-0 on the back of a 2 Pena HR's (one being a grand slam) and a complete game shut-out from Niemann.

Side note - August 5th reminds me of good times. When all the family was still alive and living in or around the Gump, that was a big birthday month for us. We'd typically have a big party at our house. My father, grandfather and an aunt had 8/5 birthdays, two cousins with 8/3, my brother 8/19 and there was someone else in the mix too. Even as screwed up as I eventually came to see my family was, I remember those particular days fairly fondly.

Seanzie-AU will have close to a full class report this year from what I hear. AU had one kid go the JUCO route, a WR named Richardson. Not sure about his status. I read he went to JUCO early because he did nto graduate HS. He had 1 class to get done and then he can resign with AU. I hear he will resign in December. I must admit I do not understand that situation but in an interview that is what he said. So AU had 5 for 2009 and 24 for for 2010.

WTC, I think we may be recruiting Allen as a RB. See what your mom knows.

I think Morrow is underrated and I hope we get him.

If we land Frost I will be excited.

Richardson is in JUCO and reportedly will be an early enrollee for the class of 2011.

If Richardson is the only "casualty" from this past class then that is huge towards getting our numbers back where they should be. To sign 30 players and only have one not enroll is almost unheard of. It just further shows how good our recruiters are.

9:27 AM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

ND going to the Big10 might prevent the destruction of the Big12, but somehow I don't think ND is going to make that leap.

I find it interesting that I read where Missouri might make the jump first and now it seems it may be Nebraska. The Big 12 might sustain one hit, but two would likely cause it to fall apart, which is what I am guessing we will see.

9:41 AM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I think the Big 12 could go get some up and comers and survive, depending on who all they lose. They could easily add a TCU, Utah, Boise, Houston, SMU etc. Granted none have the prestige of say a Nebraska but they would do alright.

9:43 AM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

If the Big12 loses Nebraska and Missouri, I would think Texas would want to get out. Once Texas goes, they are done. The Big12 already has issues with the superior teams being in the south. I am sure they could re-align the divisions, but when adding teams to the conference, you are telling the existing teams that these are the guys you are going to play every year. Some may want a weakened schedule, but the big boys wont.

9:52 AM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Schools are scrambling like there's a fire drill. I don't understand the need for immediate conference re-alignment. What's the compulsion?

10:05 AM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I think it all started with the Big10 wanting Notre Dame along with the Big10 Network and the dollars it is making. The Pac10 is suppose to be negotiating a new TV contract and they want to make their conference more attractive. The SEC appears to like things the way they are, but the idea of the Big10 and Pac10 becoming super conferences leaves the SEC in an awkward position. The teams that join the Big10 or Pac10 aren't likely to leave, so it is an act now or act never situation for the SEC.

Catching up... Fletch in the 18th seems a bit low, until you consider that he doesn't bring much to the table other than a good bat. Average defensively and speed wise and a weak arm for a corner OF. It wouldn't hurt him to come back. Depends on what kind of bonus he is offered.

Of the signees drafted, JUCO pitcher Morris is the one I worry the most about losing. I think we get signee Alvord in school, which would be big.

I don't remember this many cars sporting Bama decals in Jacksonvville when I lived here before....Also had an interesting encounter with a bammer in a bar lastf riday. She came up to me and asked who my football team is (wtf kind of question is that?). I made her repeat the question while I tried to figure out what the heck she was talking about. When I replied that I went to school at Auburn, she made a face, then started babbling about me dressing like I was from Tuscaloosa. When the hesck did bammers trademark a polo, seersucker shorts, and boat shoes. It pissed me off and I told her to go back over to her cousin boyfriend and leave me alone. She was yelling something about13 (and trying to figure out how to hold up that many fingers) as I walked away.

Norm,

Left myself open? I facilitated and encouraged the thought.

nice PF. "go back to your cousin."

I don't feel good about it, Scottie. I'm usually more of a gentleman to ladies, even that kind, but I was in a strange environment and briefly confused by what was happening, and just blurted out the truth.

PF - just wanted to put that out there so no one thought I was unjustly picking on you. Cause, that ain't me man, that ain't me. Okay, yes it is. I pick on others constantly.

you should always feel good about degrading a knuckle-draggin' bammer.

It's like a rabid dog.

PF, just being honest here, but if I saw a guy dressed like that and someone put a gun to my head and said "Did he go to Auburn or UAT?", I'm saying "UAT". With that said, if they asked "Auburn grad or UAT fan?", I would have answered "Auburn grad".

Flagpole after school?

I think if I keep hanging around JGT's WC blog, I'm going to start saying things like "Auburn are going to be good this year".

I feel like saying "al - u - mini - um" after being on the soccer blog, so I choose an al-u-mini-um baseball bat. PF gets a polo mallet.

After battling with Comcast for two weeks (including a very, very lengthy email), I have emerged victorious. My bill for July is currently negative $40, my promo has been extended to 12 months from 6, and I managed to get all of the equipment for a grand total of $1.99/month (my biggest gripe is that equipment rental was going to be between $40 and $60 a month), including an HD DVR. I backed off of some of my demands as a result, but am very happy. Drinks on me.

SC,

I live in freakin' Florida. I wasn't wearing anything out of the ordinary. The problem was that I was in a bar with a mechanical bull and a bammer whale.

Speaking of whales, if you've never seen the Fail Whale, sign in to twitter right now.

nice work with Comcast, PF.

RE: "She was yelling something about 13 (and trying to figure out how to hold up that many fingers)", you should have suggested she hold up all but one thumb.

Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

PF, whether your clothing was out of the ordinary or not, I don't know. I do know, however, that your treatment of the offending Bammer was completely appropriate.

Miller:

Hearing Woodson is waivering. May be grades, may be disagreement with Saban, or may be just that attention has left him and he needs it. I dstill doubt AU gets him but Taylor still on him hard.

Hearing Fanning is not showing up at Auburn High. May sit out a year or transfer to another high school. I think GPA is an issue.

I hope everyone had a Merry Strasmas and a Happy Harperka. I know DC did.

What's a Bammer whale?

Michael, you'll have to go back farther than this.
