I'd rather re-arrange my sock draw - and I am a baseball fan.

Aren't there something like 12 different MLB drafts with 50 rounds each, and then between round supplemental picks because some below average free agent signed with some other team leaving a team that never had a chance with even less of a chance?

Its only one draft with 50 rounds, it is a long drawn out draft that lasts three days. There are 2 supplemental rounds. I was drafted in 2007 and it is probably the most stressful thing to sit and watch in hopes that your name is called.

My post was actually sarcasm, but truth be told, the baseball drafts and free agent and rule 5 picks are too hard to follow, IMO.

Congratulations on being drafted. What round and by whom?

I figured it was but explained anyway just incase. Yes all the ways to get picked up by a team are hard to follow.

The 26th round by Tampa Bay.

I will say that watching minor league baseball is an enjoyable night and in many ways, I prefer it to the majors.

Even better are some of the Cape Cod league games.

How far did you get? I remember an interview with Rocco Baldelli in which he said that High A and his limited time in AA was the most difficult of the minors.

I didnt sign i was in my freshman year of junior college and felt like i had more to improve and the big factor was they money.

I have some friends that say the same thing, all the pitchers throw hard and have good stuff. They say if you get in triple A you are most likely stuck there.

No I didn't, I was projected to go in the top 10 rounds my sophomore yesterday and was committed to south Carolina so my price was 500 thousand, and I over priced myself and went undrafted, went on to south Carolina and didn't do well and after the season had tommy john. But the guys who are selected high it usually take them to the dead line to sign and the lower pick usually sign within a week or so. But after you sign your usually going to instruct leagues or extended spring training, some of the high pick go straight to a or aa ball. Then they either get called up or spend a couple years in the minors.
