Baseball Draft Report exclusive! Your humble author’s to-do list from the holiday weekend: 1) Gain 5 pounds (check!), 2) continue to grow hobo beard well past the point accepted in typical workplace (check!), and 3) write some junk about baseball players born in the ’90′s (check!). New plan: 1) Lose the 5 points before Christmas so that I can gain it back guilt-free over the longer holiday break, 2) shave beard so the nice old lady on the subway won’t move to a different train after I get on, and 3) actually publish the junk about baseball players that I worked so diligently on during my time off from work. Exercise regimen begins today, beard is already dead and buried, and the posting schedule for the upcoming week is actually planned in advanced for the first time in months. Here’s where I’m at right now…
Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, and Virginia Tech are already on display for your viewing pleasure/scornful wrath. Some 2011 draft thoughts on Duke, Virginia, North Carolina State, Miami, Florida State, Maryland, and Cincinnati are 99% done and in the editing stages, so expect to see all of those schools profiled in the next two weeks. I also have 90% of my college position rankings complete, so expect to see a Top (Whatever Number I Decide to Stop At) for college catchers (I know I wrote about them already, but I want to make some revisions already), college first basemen, college second basemen, college third basemen, college shortstops, college outfielders, college lefthanded pitchers, and college righthanded pitchers. I’m also sitting on some pretty weird prep rankings (for these I might start with a pitcher list and a position player list and leave more specific position breakdowns for the spring) that I’d like to roll out soon, so stay tuned for that.
The tentative schedule for the week ahead looks like this, but I’ll throw out this offer to any of my whopping 300 daily readers right now: pick any team from the above list and you’ll see it instantly OR pick any team in all of college baseball (assuming I have an updated 2011 roster…North Carolina, Boston College, and Clemson are killing me!) and you’ll see it either by the end of this week or early next week.
