Tonight was the first round of the MLB Draft.
Dare I say it? The Braves… didn’t screw things up?
Just this alone is enough to make me happy – one of the Braves’ draft picks has this as his pinned tweet – it’s him actually pimping his own bat flip.
FLIP ALL THE BATS!
Also, Kyle Muller was the National Player of the Year last year. So there’s that, too. BUT AWESOME BAT FLIP, SON.
They also picked up a hard hitting catcher from Cal, Brett Cumberland.
Finally, they got some legit pitching prospects, including Ian Anderson, who doesn’t suck.
Can I say that I’m thrilled? Yes, yes I can say it.
Finally, the Twins picked up a kid from my neck of the woods.
Verona High School is about 30 miles away from where I live. Sleepy little town, bedroom community of Madison, home of a huge software company and lousy school administrators. I don’t get very political or social very often, but dammit. That kind of stuff makes me upset. #LetNoahWalk.
Anyway. Have a great night, guys.
