Draft

If there is something that is my "thing" on this blog, it's the MLB amateur draft. I spend a fair amount of time every spring scouring the internet for information on players in the college and prep ranks. I'm not entirely sure what makes the draft so fascinating to me, but it is, and based on the bump I see in hits every year, there is interest out there.

This page is simply a compilation of my draft writings, along with a list of players from my lists who have made the majors.
