We have an actual live baseball event to follow! It’s not a baseball game, but it is at least baseball-adjacent with the first night of the draft. Tonight will see the first round as well as the Competitive Balance Round A, or in other words the first 37 picks. The Red Sox have one pick tonight coming in at number 17 overall. Obviously, we will get you coverage on that selection as soon as it happens, but consider this your space to discuss the draft as a whole as it is happening. I’ll track picks as they happen below too, though it’s not always going to be right up to date. But I’ll try my best.
