Here's your staff for Draft 2009

General Manager: Ed Wade
Assistant GM/Scouting: Bobby Heck
National Cross Checker: David Post
Regional Supervisors: Clarence Johns, Ralph Bratton, Mark Ross
Amateur Scouting Coordinator: Mike Burns
Amateur Scouts: Joe Graham, J.D. Alleva

Bobby Heck:
"Within a week after last year’s draft, we had follow lists due for the players coming up, and we followed them all summer, we followed them all fall. We use those lists to prioritize guys as we attack them in the spring. Where we’re at as an organization is still adding a depth of quality to our organization. If there’s one thing we might walk past, all things being equal, it’s catching. Jason Castro’s on his way to AA right now, and plus, there’s a lot of young catching we like in our system."

Ed Wade:
"Any time you think that you can get by a year without an effective restocking of your system is a year that puts you three years behind.”
