House of Sparky: Brandon Magee Signs With Red Sox, Will Play For ASU In 2012

When the Boston Red Sox drafted Arizona State linebacker/outfielder Brandon Magee on June 6th, there was some speculation that the talented two-sport star may ultimately end up on the diamond.

That angle solidified earlier today, when Will Boor of The State Press reported that Magee was expected to sign with Boston.

Later on Thursday, the Red Sox announced that Magee has in fact signed with the organization. However, this will not effect Magee's status with ASU's football team for his senior season in 2012.

I feel dumb, but how can this be true?

NCAA rules allow athletes to go pro in one sport and remain "amateur" in another.

I guess with less money to throw around, teams have less leverage to forbid a player from doing something like this.

It can't turn out worse than Shaq Green-Thompson.

I believe whats-his-name in Toronto will also be playing college football in addition to playing for the Blue Jays in the minors. I think we'll be seeing a lot more of this with the new CBA in place, now that teams can only spend so much money to convince two-way players to stick to only baseball.

Not an edit since I read #3 as I was writing this but coke to EMHaWK.

Holy ####, that might be the worst MiLB line I've ever seen. .000/.143/.000

That's 28 PA, 4 BB, and 23 K. So he made only one out that wasn't a strikeout. Damn. Poor kid. He did have 1 RBI, though.

Can anyone find a worse MiLB line?

Boston drafted, within five rounds of each other (18th and 23rd), two two-sport athletes? Maybe that's less "two-sport athletes" and more "football players."

They thought 2+2 added up to a 4-sport athlete, and they'd have a hockey player and a basketball player too in the deal. Based on early returns, SGT is accounting for 2 of the non-baseball sports.

I think I could manage that.
