Rays Shadow Draft Year 2

As a northeastern guy, I don't get to see 98% of these guys before the draft. This is really an exercise on my ability to turn public info like Perfect Game, BBA, KLaw, and this site into a workable draft. I know I am not smarter than the Rays. I just wonder over time if I can manage to stay close to their results based on the info I read.

I drafted Buttrey in the 2nd round but could not sign him so I am claiming pick #89 next season. The new rules made it a real challenge picking up any HS talent. But I think I can do a better job next season signing guys.

In my 20 rounds I signed 11 guys only going overslot for Sammy Ayala in my 14th round. Here is my haul:

1.25 Richie Schafer COL 3B/RF

3.119 Jake Barrett COL RHP

4.152 Dylan Baker JC RHP

5.182 Preston Beck COL OF

7.242 Torsten Boss COL 3B/RF

9.302 Logan Vick COL OF

10.332 Kevin Brady COL RHP

11.362 Blake Hauser COL RHP

12.392 Brock Hebert COL SS

14.452 Sammy Ayala HS C

17.542 Eric Garcia COL SS

So for 2 seasons, here are my picks and the Rays picks that did not coincide:
