Remember when you watched CBS's presentation of EliteXC and thought, "This looks like WWE shit compared to UFC"? Welcome to MLB's coverage of the 2008 draft.
Thursday, June 05, 2008
I made the mistake of turning on coverage at 10 to find some clown douche trying to rile up the Disney World crowd. Fuck, dude.
Mock Negro League draft. Prolooooooonged.
Clowndouche again attempting to rile the crowd. Clowndouche is introducing each team's draft representative(s). Fuuuuuuuuuck. Get to the draft. I like that J.T. Snow and Felipe Alou are there for the Giants. Didn't JT hate Felipe when he played for him? I could be wrong about that. Harold Reynolds representing Seattle is priceless. There's a Zim sighting for Tampa Bay.
Okay, on to the draft. No analysis from me.
I think Peter Gammons just called Josh Hamilton an "All-American guy," though I don't know if he meant he was an All-American as an amateur, or like Captain America/David Eckstein. He may have said "All-American story," but I'm watching this online without the ability to rewind. How come black guys never get that designation? I guess black players get to be "instinctive" while white players are "gamers" and "All-American." Obviously, the idea that Hamilton has succeeded despite some hardship is fucking crazy batshit absurd, but oh well.
Karl Ravech says Gordon Beckham has "literally" been moving up the charts. Sweet.
Bud Selig says the "Los Angel-eez Dodgers" are on the clock. You are a boob, Bud. Boob Bud?
I've sort of lost interest. Giants don't pick again until #37, I think. Meh. I'm thrilled that Posey was there for them at #5.
