Day 2 of the 2012 MLB Draft kicks up at noon today. There will be no live running blog like yesterday and instead - as in years past - we will be posting draft capsules for every player drafted today within minutes of the pick. NOTE: These capsules will not post to the front page, so to see them you will need to click on the "News" tab located to the upper left below the site header.
Day one of the draft is over, and Tony has all kinds of information on first round pick Tyler Naquin. He provides lots of quotes from Director of Amateur Scouting Brad Grant on the pick, quotes from Naquin himself, and some quotes from some scouts he talked to last night. He also gives lots of commentary on the Indians approach to pick and the rest of the draft, how quickly Naquin could move in the system, and lots more.
Smoke Signals returns to the cyberwaves tonight from 10:00 – 11:00PM EST. Tony and Jim will talk about the Indians recent disappointing homestand with the Royals and Twins and also give some thoughts on tonights Indians-Tigers game. They will also talk about the future of Matt LaPorta with the big league club and review how the Indians have done so far the first two days of the MLB Draft.
