Draft on TV

It may not have been scintillating television, but at least Major League Baseball joined the rest of the professional sports world in having its draft televised.

The televised version of the draft is a much slower version than in the past. Even with teams only having five minutes to pick as opposed to 15 in the NFL.

And ESPN could have done a better job with the draft. For example, instead of telling me that the last time the Cleveland Indians held the No. 13 pick in the draft they took Manny Ramirez, how about telling me more than just a scouting report on some of the potential draftees.

While there may be work to be done in that area, this is at least a start. It's a long way from the days of having to track down draft information through the players.
