Draft Day

We finished our annual Draft Day breakfast, and we're currently in our final discussions.

Today is going to be a slower first day than normal since we're only getting through three rounds. Nevertheless, we're going over a number of permutations to make sure that we're set up to act quickly regardless of what happens in front of us in each of the rounds. The anticipation is painful.

Just like last year I'll be posting after each of our selections.

Awesome! Last year was amazing, I was glued to your blog!

Paul, can you give us some behind the scenes on what is going on now? Are you guys talking to agents about how feasible it is to sign guys so you don't waste a pick?

My concern with Tate is that he may pass on the ML to go to UNC. What are your thoughts on this?

Paul DePodesta said...

Lots of talk going on right now.

However, I'm not going to talk about any players until after we get going.

Damn I was hoping the Mariners would pass on Ackley. Don't take TATE he won't sign he wants to play college. Take one of the college pitchers!
