They draft, we blog, you read

Not sure how to feel about today's MLB draft being televised on ESPN2 -- for years, it's been a rite of summer to follow the draft online at mlb.com, hitting "refresh" a couple hundred times while waiting for local players to hear their name called. My favorite thing about the MLB draft was the simplicity -- NFL teams need 15 minutes to make a pick, but baseball can fire off a round in about that much time, just one player after another for 50 rounds in two days. It's not summer until you've heard Tommy Lasorda enthusiastically butcher the name of some Dodgers draft pick.

So keep checking back here for lots of updates -- we might not see a current USF player drafted today, but there's a good chance a few Bulls signees will go. Coach Lelo Prado and his staff have conceded that outfielder Denny Almonte of Miami and Rey Navarro of Puerto Rico will be drafted too high for them to seriously consider USF over a mid-six-figure signing bonus. Other recruits could be gone if they're drafted too high -- that's part of the game in college baseball recruiting. So check back and we'll drop some news about new walk-ons and recruits coming to USF's baseball program. Keep those questions and comments coming ...
