2011 MLB Mock Draft, Version 2

2011 MLB Mock Draft, Version 2

I’ve been meaning to update our mock draft for awhile and here is the newest version. I follow the draft for fun, but realistically, I have no ”inside knowledge” on who teams will actually pick.  There are some great draft sources available online, especially Baseball America.  But also, MLB Bonus Baby is a great site covering the draft and Keith Law/Jason Churchill’s draft blog on ESPN is awesome too. Also, I’d recommend Mack Ade’s website. Mack’s site covers the Mets, and in addition, he does a terrific job following the draft.  I wanted to write reports this year, but  unfortunately, I was low on time.  However, for people who want more info, I was able to find video and scouting reports (or an article, in a few cases) on all the players.
