Dartmouth pitcher drafted. (His brother, another Dartmouth man, is off to a great start with AAA Columbus.) We'll see if Danielak gets drafted again this year.

Any other Ivies drafted?

Sulser is a great pitcher. One of the few pitchers all year who was able to stop Yale's offense. Best of luck to him.

Dartmouth has a nice-looking class coming in, but their two best pitchers graduated. They'll have a steep hill to climb to catch Yale next year.

Penn has had 4 pitchers drafted this year and we still got knocked around a bit at the end of the year. Lesher was the 1st in the 17th round. I think Cousins went in the 20th

Very impressive - well done Penn. Dartmouth has never had four guys drafted in a year. They did have four pitchers who went to the minors one year, but that included 1 or 2 undrafted free agents.

Good question. My guess is Ivy League coaches value pitching recruits most and save their lowest AI slots for them.

Moneyball.

College pitchers project better than HS pitchers - better competition, more mature bodies. HS pitchers are a lottery - see Taylor, Brien or Van Poppel, Todd.

College batters don't project as well - too old to start at low minors and adjust to wood bats and pro pitching... by the time they hit the bigs (if they do) they are nearly at peak productivity.

Teams want young hitters and mature pitchers.

I understand the notion, but by this logic college pitchers are therefore playing against relatively uneven or inferior hitters and thus are not fully proven, with HS hitters being judged by performance against uneven pitching competition.

I'm taking this one to the Puzzle Palace and think about it for awhile.
