Draft Recap and Second Day

Al, I didn't think you would spend another headline on the draft, so I'm putting up this diary for people to continue chatting about yesterday's lower picks, and the second day today.  

I was disappointed in the minimal coverage on-line in the Chicago papers today.  There are always a few interesting stories among the mid-round draft picks, and we're not getting them yet.  Maybe it makes a difference that the Cubs played a night game and the beat writers are on the road.  I hope we'll see some writeups by this afternoon.  

Draft Central is at http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/events/draft/y2007/index.jsp.

Just to review, the Cubs selections so far:
Round   Player
1       Josh Vitters, 3B, CA high school, R/R
2       Josh Donaldson, C, Auburn U., R/R
3       Tony Thomas, 2B, FSU, R/R
4       Darwin Barney, SS, Oregon St., R/R
5       Brandon Guyer, RF, UVA, R/R

Please link any stories you find.  

I'm also interested to know:

  • When do you think the top picks will sign?
  • At what level will they begin their minor-league career?
  • What positions will they end up playing?
  • How long will it take for the Cubs to select a pitcher this year?
  • This is a FanPost and does not necessarily reflect the views of SB Nation or Al Yellon, managing editor (unless it's a FanPost posted by Al). FanPost opinions are valued expressions of opinion by passionate and knowledgeable baseball fans.
