Monday night is going to be fun trying to dig up info on all these guys while two more picks are added to the queue. Not sure what my plan is for Tuesday. I love listening to the draft and posting all the info here, but we'll have to see how it goes with me having work.ReplyDelete
Last year was pretty fast-paced, at least the 2nd and 3rd days, can't imagine what Monday night is going to be like.ReplyDelete
I should be able to handle posting the picks on Tuesday and Wednesday, at least until 3 pm or so and then again that evening.
I can't wait! Anyone know when Mayo will do the MLB draft reports. THose are the most resourceful and easiest to use out there.ReplyDelete
