Draft Day - Dodger Draft Thread

The Major League Draft kicks off today at 03:00 PCT but the Dodgers won't be involved for quite a while as they gave up their number one pick to sign Orlando Hudson and didn't get one back when the Braves signed D Lowe. The first few picks of the Dodgers will go like this thanks to SilverWidow:

#36 Supplemental 1st round pick (for Derek Lowe)
#56 Braves' 2nd round pick (for Lowe)
#65 Dodgers' 2nd round pick
#96 Dodgers' 3rd round pick

Here are some excellent links to whet your appetite for the draft.

Baseball Analysts are covering every aspect of the draft, not just the Dodgers.

Andy Seiler did a fan post on SB Nations Minor League Baseball which  has a review of the Logan White drafts, this is a great read from a different perspective. I wish he went into more detail on all the picks but this is a great read and one I recommend for anyone interested in how Logan White handles his drafts.

Brendan found this review of prior Dodger drafts by Fangraphs

To really make you appreciate how much Logan White means to the organization I did a review of the 1999 - 2001 draft pre - Logan White back in Sept of 2007.

Also back in Sept of 2007 and it needs to be updated I did a review of the 2002/2003 drafts
