Baseball America today announced that the publication has graded the Red Sox' 2006 First Year Player Draft as the best of the 30 major league teams. The 2006 Draft Report Cards are included in the latest issue of Baseball America, which went on newsstands today.

Boston signed 27 of its 54 selections from the 2006 draft, including each of the first 13 picks. Red Sox players cited by the publication included RHP Josh Papelbon (named one of the top five second day picks) and 1B Lars Anderson (named one of the top five power hitters).

A power-hitting first baseman named Lars. Now there's a sentence I've never written before. Chan was elected president today. There's another for good measure.

Unfortunately, the Yankees came in second.

Still, great news, and the Latin signings were really great apparently as well. They did what we were all saying they needed to vis a vis the draft.
