Orioles 2008 Draft coverage Overview discussion
Here's how we'll handle this year's coverage on the message board:
First, we'll have a general discussion thread during the draft which will be this thread.
For every Orioles pick, an individual thread will be given to that player where everyone can do their magic and research the heck of the guy.
Opinions, information, links, pictures, videos, it's all fair game in the player's draft thread.
This will be a great way to gather all the information available about the Orioles new draft picks....
I plan on being at the Camden Yards for the draft and will post comments from Jordan and MacPhail in these threads...
I'll be posting a front page draft coverage notice that will point to this forum.
Let's have fun with this. I know I'm looking forward to watching the poer of the Hangout community shine.
So who's taking off work???

The last three years I've been fortunate enough to have off work the day of the draft. Hopefully I'll be as lucky this year. I always look forward to the draft to see what players the O's have selected to help turn this franchise around. Here's hoping JJ has another banner draft.

When is the draft? I work Saturday mornings, but if it starts around 3 I might be able to catch it. I know the whole thing only lasts about 17 minutes...

I have to work 6pm to 6am on the 5th and 6th, but you can bet that I'm going to get up early and watch.

I don't know how I do it. But every year for the last four years I have subconsciously taken the first and second day of the draft off from work. I must have it down to some instinct stuck in my primordial brain.

After all the analysis... after all the discussions... and after all the polls, mock drafts, occassionally heated exchanges and well, fun ... the one thing I feel sure about is that we will be adding one fine young man into our organization.

Does anyone know if they're just airing the first round on ESPN2? Or are they airing multiple rounds?
