Last night was the Major League amateur draft.  No Gophers were drafted in the first three rounds (not a surprise) but you can expect to see some of the following names appear as the draft continues tomorrow...

  • OF - Eric Decker
  • IF - Derek McCallum
  • CF/DH - Matt Nohelty
  • IF - AJ Pettersen (not eligible)
  • OF - Mike Kvasnicka (not eligible)
  • RP - Scott Matyas
  • SP - Seth Rosin (not eligible)
  • SP - Tom Buske

Gopher fans have to hope that most of these guys return for another season.  With such a young nucleus of position players and pitching staff this could be a very good team next year.  I am assuming that Decker has taken his last composite swing at the college level, Nohelty was a senior, but McCallum needs to return for another year to dominate the Big Ten (again) and lead his team to a Super Regional or a trip to Omaha.
