« Garcia drafted in Round 2 | Main | Kibbles & Bits »

Mike (Starter) to Rays, Mike (Closer) & Silverio to Chisox

Always wanted to use the old-time headline word "Chisox" in a headline.

Anyway, FIU's 2014 ace Mike Franco got selected by the Tampa Bay Rays in the seventh round of the Major League Baseball draft Friday. FIU's all-time saves leader Mike Gomez went in the 13th round to the Chicago White Sox.

Later Saturday, with pick No. 978, the White Sox took outfielder Louis Silverio.

With catcher Aramis Garcia's second round selection by San Francisco, that makes four FIU players gone so far in the draft.

I thought I did some nice breaking down of the way FIU coaching pay didn't seem to match up the experience or success of the coach involved. But reader Cory Jarrell, with a blog, some free time and the kind of pretty graphs modern media outlets encourage, really went to town.
