Ex-Heel, future Yank?

As a Tar Heel myself, it was nice to read Adam Warren's comments about being drafted by the Yankees. Moving from one of the best college baseball traditions to one of the best in pro baseball.

"I think that’s the neat thing about being drafted by the Yankees. Not to take anything away from Dustin Ackley, Alex White, or any of the other guys that got drafted before me, but getting drafted into the pinstripes is just a little different. It’s an honor, everybody knows the organization and the history that it has, and I saw that after I got picked when people around me were excited that I got selected, but also because I got to join the Yankee family as well."

Warren doesn't have lights out stuff, like fellow heel alums Daniel Bard or Alex White, but he knows how to pitch. His ceiling is projected as a bullpen guy. Certainly sounds like he's ready to sign.
