Aside from one more article tomorrow, I think I’m done with my online draft coverage for this year. Here’s what went up in the last few days, since my stuff isn’t always easy to find:
My day two recap, covering five teams that did something interesting. My day one recap was a little more expansive, since the bulk of the top prospects always go in the top three rounds anyway. My final top 100 ranking went up on Tuesday before the draft started.
I’m quoted a few times in this piece on prep players.
- Brian Kenny show, Wednesday.
- Baseball Tonight, Wednesday.
- The Herd, Wednesday.
- AllNight, Tuesday.
- Tirico and Van Pelt, Tuesday.
- First round high school arms and signability.
- Tate, Stassi, and Matzek.
- Predraft piece on the 2008 draft’s early success stories.
It doesn’t look like my TV hits from Tues/Weds are online.
I also want to say publicly how grateful I am to the yeoman’s work done by Jason Churchill on the ESPN MLB Draft blog this year. Having Jason to get content up there daily while I was running across the country seeing players and catching stomach flus was an enormous help, and I thought the stuff he produced was outstanding and really moved our draft coverage forward this year. And I assume you all know that if I thought his stuff sucked, I would say so, meaning that what I’ve said here is genuine.
Finally, thanks to all of you for reading and watching and, in many cases, reaching out to me to offer compliments on the work that I did or that Jason did. The best part about this job is that I get to produce unique content that people want to read and like to read, and I don’t think I’ll ever tire of hearing people say that they enjoyed some piece that I read or some random radio hit that I did. Thank you.
