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)

Aren't Holden Kushner and Grant Paulsen characters on General Hospital?

The problem with drafting Buster is you have to also draft Lucille.

I'm guessing this is punishment for not glogging a wednesday afternoon game? It's hard enough watching the NFL draft, I can't imagine how tough it is to listen to the MLB draft.

If you like Holden Kushner and Grant Paulsen, you'll love this: I just read that, on the Tigers' radar, is a guy named Shooter Hunt. He eats shits like you for breakfast.

PaleHose-

There actually is a character on GH with my name.

@ Chief Wahoo

Is that the first native American character in Daytime soap history? Gotta be.
