Hasn't hit the City really badly yet, but Mayor Bloomberg has done a good job of preparation, so we'll generally be OK.As for next year's class, it's not quite as elite. There are a couple of really exciting prospects, but not as many elite guys. Who knows if we keep Sheffield (who might be the hardest thrower in the class) and guys like Kilichowski could be draft risks too. But there's a very solid corps of what one might consider 4-star recruits who will make it to campus and ensure this is yet another top 10 or top 15 class, even if we lose Sheff. The class is pretty much full with, IIRC, 12 or 13 commits lined up (all but one are listed on PG). There are at least two guys I think we still have offers out (both of the ones I know about are LHP).Most excited for: Aubrey McCarty (1B/SwP)Highest ceiling: Jordan Sheffield (RHP) and John Kilichowski (LHP)Most important to get through the draft: Karl Ellison (C)I doubt losing Holly will have a huge impact because Travis is supposed to be another in the line of elite recruiters. And while losing DJ hurts and he certainly was a huge part of our sales pitch to arms, I'm confident we'll have an outstanding replacement in place soon.
