MLB.com Draft Coverage

MLB Radio is going to cover the draft on the air for the entire first day.  20 Rounds.  20 Rounds in 6 hours comes out to 600 picks in 360 minutes, almost two picks a minute.  Can you imagine the lists the scouting directors have made up?  I bet they are wearing MS Excel out.  This draft is going to be a tad bit different that the NFL and NBA drafts. 

While I think baseball needs to promote itself, this could be the most boring baseball programming ever, especially once we get past the second or third round.  Still if I can keep mlb.com from locking up my browser (why do you hate me?), I’ll probably listen to some of the coverage.
