It's time to get hyped because the draft is today! Yesterday Jodes gave us an MLB draft primer to fill us in on all the details of this year's draft. Today we get to revel in all the fun of the actual draft. As she noted, the draft coverage will begin at 3 PM PT (with the actual draft starting at 4 PM) and we, as Padres fans, are looking forward to 5 picks by the home club today. In addition, we will get to see what the competition is drafting. Who goes #1? Will it be La Costa Canyon's Micky Moniak or University of Florida's A.J. Puk? Or maybe a surprise? Who will rivals, like the Rockies who pick 4th or the Dodgers who pick 20th pick? Will the Padres load up on pitching, hitting, or find a solid mix? Is this the draft that builds A.J. Preller's legacy or the one that dooms him? Join us in the open thread and share your thoughts on all of these as the draft progresses.
