As many of you know, I’m not “all in” for the MLB First-Year Player Draft, which may be a bit unusual for prospects guy. But even before I were to tell you that I graduated from the University of Oregon, you already knew I was an odd duck.
As I’ve written before, it just doesn’t interest me to speculate on who “we” might get so much as I like to follow who “we’ve” got. As a buddy of mine put it, it’s hard for MLB to manufacture the excitement of the NFL or NBA drafts because you’re pretty much going on the opinions of perhaps a dozen people.
However, this year is a little different.
Sean Hogan, author of the three-part draft series that ran the past three Tuesdays, will be live-blogging the event for us, so I hope you’ll check in tonight to see what he has to say. I’ll be keeping an eye on the minors, as usual, and resting up for a busy weekend in Potomac.
