Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

Select Company

Some thoughts on the local batch of MLB Draftees
Andrew Sohn (Birmingham Brother Rice-WMU) - Went to the St. Louis Cards in the 6th rd, the def of a text book swing and fundamentally-sound glove
Jimmy Pickens (Birmingham Brother Rice-MSU - Went to the Cincinnati Reds in the 15th rd, the perfect combination of heart, natural talent and leadership
Devon Ahart (OL St. Mary's-Akron) - Went to the LA Dodgers in the 16th rd, this 5-TOOL stud has a stratospheric UPSIDE in the pros...TAKE IT 2 THA BANK!!
Joel Fisher (Farmington-MSU) - Went to the Philadelphia Phillies in the 23rd rd, The Big Fish is a straight killer on the diamond
Dazon Cole (West Bloomfield) - Went to the ATL Braves in the 29th rd, PURE POWER and DETERMINATION on the mound!!....just a winner in so many ways!!
Grant Reuss (BH Cranbrook) - Went to the Detroit Tigers in the 31st rd, SOOOOOOOOOOO SMOOOOOOOOOTH toeing the slab....'NUFF SAID!!
Sammy Stevens (Birmingham Brother Rice) - Went to the Detroit Tigers in the 34th rd, one of my all-time favorite "glue" guys that might have been lurking in the shadows in the hs ranks, but is ready to soar to a whole other level in the very near future
Jake Paulson (WL Central-OU)- Went to the Cincinnati Reds in the 27th rd, IKE THE VIKE is beaming!!...Picture of a gamer on the bump!
