    Kudos to the Pirates! Whether they sign him or not, I'm glad to see a small market team take the chance.

    Having issues with MLB and ESPN's draft trackers. Not good for those who want to make the draft bigger than it is.

    I haven't had any issues with MLB's draft tracker, so it might be you.

    But, the draft isn't ever going to be that big. Guy's simply don't go from the draft to the majors and because of that, the interest just isn't ever going to be there like it is with the other sports.

    Agree, however it can be grown (as it already has).

    I can see them FWIW. They just picked #77, Reds have #84.

    Catching up:

    Seattle took Bradley Miller, SS, from Clemeson #62
    Arizona took Anthony Meo, RHP, from Coastal Caroliona #63
    Baltimore took Jason Esposito, 3B, from Vanderbilt

    Only ones update for now, but Edabbs, you say they're at #77 already?

    When I brought up the Pop Up tracker, it shows them all, but not under their listings. Very Weird.

    When did UCONN get so good at baseball? Three Huskies have already been taken in the first two rounds and they're playing in the super regional this weekend...
