Happy Draft Day, everybody. The MLB first year player draft simply doesn’t compare well to how the other sports leagues dish out their talent. We’re incredibly unlikely to see many of the players selected playing anywhere close to the Major League level for the next few years, it’s happening at the same time as several actual games and it’s less likely for MLB’s top draft picks to get signed than any other North American sport.
Nonetheless, there’s been a surge of popularity in the last few years for the draft, as baseball fans search for more reasons to celebrate and commiserate their favourite team’s actions.
Starting at 3:00 PM EDT, Getting Blanked’s draft coverage continues with a live stream where we’ll answer your questions and take your comments on this evening’s Rule IV draft.
