More on the draft...

New, comment

A wrap-up of the less-exciting parts of the amateur draft:

The Brewers made 17 selections on Day 1 of the 2005 First-Year Player Draft including Jemile Weeks, an 18-year-old shortstop from Lake Brantley High School in Florida selected in the eighth round at No. 235 overall.

"He's young," Brewers scouting director Jack Zduriencik said. "He's a high school kid, and, you know, Rickie was small and undersized. Jemile is small in stature right now, but he's got great actions. We're going to sit down and talk to the family, see what their desires are."
