On my way to Baltimore


Good afternoon folks. If you are wondering where I have been I’m busy tying up some loose ends before heading to Baltimore for tomorrow’s MLS Draft. Apologies for the lack of posts today but I had some meetings to attend to and I spent all last night cranking out some ESPN.com pieces and preparing the player rankings.

If you haven’t seen them yet, here are two draft-related stories on ESPN.com. The main story is my final Mock Draft. I’m feeling pretty good about it, although I do expect some trades and I also think Tony Beltran will find his way into the first round the more I think about it.

The second story should get many of you talking. I re-do the 2007 MLS Draft, with teams getting a chance to go back and make picks based on what we’ve learned since then about the available players. I think it’s a fun piece that should give you all something to think about leading up to tomorrow.

That’s all for now. I’m heading down I-95 (writing this from the side of the road) and Steve Goff tells me there’s snow in Baltimore. GREAT. What I wouldn’t give for some more of that Florida sun at the Combine.

Share your thoughts on my ESPN.com pieces below.
