Keith Law:
Heathcott bloomed late and really exploded the last few weeks but the Yankees were on him earlier than most clubs. The swine flu scare caused a suspension in the Texas HS season, so Heathcott was still playing in the playoffs during the week when ordinarily he might have been attending workouts -- meaning that the swine flu scare helped the Yankees.
