Six of Sixty-Two: Draft Day is Here

We're mere hours away now from The Great Restocking.  Thanks to Coco Cordero and Scott Linebrink signing elsewhere in the offseason, we have a boatload of extra picks, and I'm sure Jack Zduriencik will use them wisely.  (Hey Jack, think Gallardo, not Rogers, ok?)

A great place to follow the action is's Draft Central.  The Draft Tracker application has info on hundreds of eligible players, and will track (duh) every pick.  There's video on many of the top prospects, and plenty of fluff-filled feature articles to keep you busy.

The draft starts at 1:00 CT.  If the pace is what I recall from last year, the Brewers will make their first selection (#16) between 2:00 and 2:30 CT.  The first round will be on ESPN, and the whole shebang will be live on video through  I think the first five rounds will take place today, with the remainder of the draft moving along at a much more rapid pace starting at 10:30 CT tomorrow.

Future Sheets's, Fielders, Brauns, Harts, and Gallardos, assemble!
