Coop on facing the Big Hurt:
Who'll be representing the Sox on June's Baseball Draft? Roland Hemond and South Side Hitman Chet Lemon.
In other news, the Sox signed three players from the 2006 draft: OF Sergio Morales (12th round), LHP Hector Santiago (30th round), and 3B Jedon Matthews (28th round).
Also, "the Sox had hoped to sign OF Chris Ulrey, a 33rd-round pick who played last spring at New Palestine (Ind.) High School, before Wednesday night's deadline for teams to sign players from the 2006 draft who didn't play at four-year colleges" says Mark Gonzales.
