Hey AN, thought you might be interested to read what Oakland's second pick yesterday, Tyson Ross, had to say about being drafted by his hometown team. Also, he reveals why he has such an unorthodox follow-through on his delivery.
Basically, Ross is a shortstop on the mound. He never changed his throwing motion from the time he was an infielder, and throws the same way when he toes the rubber now.
You can read the full interview here.
In my communication with Ross, I was impressed -- as the scouts said in his draft report, this is a character guy with great mental makeup.
