2011 MLB Draft Watch Thread

Maybe Tommy can help us....

Today we probably say goodbye to Mikie Mahtook, a likely 1st rounder in tonight's MLB Draft, but there are even more flight risks over the next few days of the sprawling 50-round, week-long draft.

Along with LSU's draft eligible players (All Juniors and above, along with a few draft eligible sophmores), you'll also want to keep an eye out for LSU 2012 recruits (list shamelessly cribbed from the immortal DandyDon.com)

Of course, the real day to pay attention is Baseballmageddon in mid-August when the players have to sign or stay, but for now we at least we find out where everyone stands.

The draft is live on MLBTV, which is on a lot of cable systems if you can find it.
