2011 MLB Draft Open Thread - Day 1

Who's ready to see a whole lot of Bug Selig tonight? (Photo by Mike Stobe/Getty Images)

The draft gets underway in less than an hour, so please feel free to use this as an open thread/chat. The Mets have the 13th and 44th pick today, and they'll have a bevy of talented player to choose from in the deepest draft class in a long time. This will also be Sandy Alderson, Paul DePodesta, and Chad MacDonald's first draft at the helm of the Mets, so it'll be interesting to see what kind of philosophy they enact.

I'll provide updates here as we move along, and I'll provide analysis of the Mets' picks as soon as they happen. In case you missed it, you can find my preview here.

For those looking for a live feed of the draft via MLB's website, you can find one here.
