June 6, 2008
Today was day two of the 2008 First Year Player Draft. Yesterday the draft completed the first 12 rounds. Today they plan to complete the remaining 38 rounds. Yes you heard me right, the remaining 38 rounds. It seems somewhat appropriate that the MLB draft is being held at Disney’s Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World since it lasts longer than standing in line for Test Track at Epcot. Perhaps Bud Selig should introduce Fast Pass into the draft sequence to allow teams who know who they want to draft to get to the front of the line quicker. Day one was brutal as each team was given 10-15 minutes per selection for the first round. There is just so much drama you can build into a draft pick and baseball as usual went well beyond that line.
