Is it really that time of year already?
It’s hard to believe that we’re just four weeks (ish) from draft day on June 7. But here we are with all 30 teams trying to line up their draft boards. I, too, am working feverishly to try and figure out my own projections (First one comes out next week).
Between now and June 7, those lists and rankings will undoubtedly change several times over. And I’ll be here reporting it all up until draft day. We’ll have tons of great coverage on MLB.com in the draft section and if you check it out every day, you’ll have everything all the basics you need to be in the know come Draft Day.
But one of the best things about the draft season is how quickly storylines change and how quickly the rumors fly about. That’s what this blog will bring to you. The stuff that might otherwise fall between the cracks. Sure, we know that Vandy lefty David Price will almost certainly be the No. 1 pick (be sure to check out his first-person journal for us, by the way). Beyond that, however, there are several question marks that will need to be answered before we really know who will go where. Will Max Scherzer re-enter the draft? How will he and other Scott Boras clients fall in the draft, i.e., what impact will the Boras Factor have? There aren’t many college bats out there, so will the ones available be over-drafted?
We’re just getting started. Check back early and often and we’ll keep you updated on what’s going on out in the draft world.
