Default *Official* 2011 MLB Draft Thread

The draft is spread out over 3 days. Tonight is the 1st and Supplemental round, which will be televised on MLB Network and streamed at MLB.com at 7 PM ET. Rounds 2-30 are scheduled for Tuesday the 7th at noon ET, and rounds 31-50 will take place at the same time on Wednesday the 8th.

The White Sox pick once tonight, at number 47. Almost all reports have confidently said to expect college pitching, and plenty of it.

BA's final mock draft is up. Most all sources are noting that Cole will be the number 1 pick.

Goldstein's final mock draft is up. It also notes a prediction for teams that don't have a 1st round selection.

Guess who's draft eligible still? Ozney Guillen. So is Doug Laumann's son.

No surprise. He's had somewhat of a down year, but the stuff is fantastic and the ceiling is phenomenal. Rendon is almost assured to go number 2. Mariners have been all over him the entire year despite the injury issues. Number 3 and on becomes murky. Arizona has been in love with Hultzen most of the year, but Bauer is now in the mix. Should be interesting to see how it all unfolds.

Love Bundy to the Orioles. So polished for a high school pitcher.

Great pick.

Does KC pop Rendon? They really wanted pitching.

Law is predicting Rendon slides to Washington. Callis guessed the Cubs.

KC has lots of options. The pitching they wanted isn't there. Rendon, Starling, or Lindor are all feasible.

Nice.

Bubba has such ridiculous tools. Ridiculous ceiling, and he's local product. Good for him/them.

Another stud for KC. Starling can really shine there.

If his tools pan into skills, the sky is the limit. Still a big risk though.
