Less than two days away … are ya ready? Here’s some stuff to hold you over:
- KLaw takes a step back and looks at how the 2003 Draft unfolded. The line about Matt Antonelli & Mark Melancon? Totally stole that from me. Law also explains why teams should be allowed to trade picks. Sorry, but both of those pieces are behind the iron curtain of ESPN Insider.
- Both the NY Times and ESPN take a gander into the life of Pedro Alvarez. Interesting stuff.
- Amy Nelson explains how the Brewers can clean-up this year with all those extra picks.
- Bob Klapisch talks about how the Mets will screw up those three early picks.
- The UBBMD is still going on. I don’t have the time to follow along, so I just submitted a list of players I’d like to take in the second round. Tops on that list was Purdue RHP Josh Lindblom.
- Paul DePodesta talks about life in Padres’ war room.
- Saber Scouting ranks their Top 100 Draft Prospects.
- Jonathan Mayo has a new Mock First Round up. Brett Hunter? Bah! Give me upside or give me death!
