If you want to read some ridiculous baseball commentary without any shred of insight, join us later today at 2PM EDT as I will be liveglogging the 2008 MLB First Year Player Draft. As usual, I'll be listening to the XM Radio baseball channel, featuring coverage by former Mets GM Jim Duquette and hosts Holden Kushner and Grant Paulsen.
I'll try to cover the entire first round which features 30 picks, each with a 5 minute time limit. Using simple math off the top of my head, the first round should last 27 hours.
Common knowledge says that Tampa Bay is deciding between two players with their top pick: FSU catcher Buster Posey and Georgia high school shortstop Tim Beckham. Word has it that the Rays will take Beckham because Posey's price-tag is too steep. There's also Vanderbilt third baseman Pedro Alvarez, but his agent is Scott Boras, so that will most likely be the Pirates problem. We'll see what happens at 2PM!
(UPDATE: I'm glogging over here, folks)
