2007 HS All-America Teams

After one of the best high school classes of the decade parted ways for professional and college baseball, the wake left behind will be felt for years. Picking this year's High School All-America teams was tougher than ever, and the players chosen offered the best combination of performance and prospect status.

HS Player Of The Year: Mike Moustakas

Alan Matthews -

Mike Moustakas slugged his way to becoming the first high school player drafted this year when he was taken with the second pick by the Royals. He was selected as the Los Angeles City Section player of the year for the second consecutive season, and trumped that honor by becoming just the second player from the Golden State to be named Baseball America's High School Player of the Year.

Padres Risk Little On Bradley

Jim Callis -

The Padres have ridden their pitching to the top of the National League West, but their offense still could use some help. As a result, San Diego took a chance on volatile Milton Bradley, who was a key part of playoff teams with the Dodgers and the Athletics but wore out his welcome with both clubs. Oakland, which had designated Bradley for assignment before his lack of playing time would become an issue, accepted Triple-A righthander Andrew Brown in return for Bradley on Friday. The A's also will contribute $1.36 million toward the remainder of Bradley's 2007 salary.
