    Will the Rockies load up on pitching?

    I also heard the Padres have 8 of the first 88 selections in the draft.

    I love baseball. I enjoy tracking prospects.

    But this does not work well on TV. At all.

    No worse than the snooze-fest known as the NFL draft

    Yeah, it is. Mel Kiper is good for laughter, at least.

    Which is why I wonder why they just couldn't have left well enough alone.

    Even the self-professed prospect gurus have never seen 95 percent of these guys play.

    In other news, the Pirates just drafted a pitcher. He'll blow out his elbow signing the contract.

    On the plus side: This one doesn't include Chris Berman or Mel Kiper Jr.

    And that's a sure thing. Now that the Royals and Bucs have both picked, I can stop watching it.

    Actually, this is better than the NFL becuase of no Kiper and no Berman... not that Phillips is any great shakes

    But it pretty much sucks to watch

    Steve Phillips: "You can't build a team with prospects. So here are some of the guys I would have traded for Steve Reed."

    The O's better be able to sign Wieters, or Baltimore's really high murder rate will grow.

    Dear ESPN draft morons,

    Maybe the Brewers signed LaPorta because they won't be able to re-sign Fielder when he costs $7 billion as a free agent. Also, since he can't play first base worth a shit, maybe he'll have to go the American League as a DH. Why won't one of you morons say this?

    Sincerely,

    Hammer Pants
