Oh Yeah, the Draft...

You may have noticed that the first day of the draft is nine days away and we haven’t had any preview coverage yet. That’s mostly because the White Sox don’t have a first round pick thanks to the Adam Dunn signing. The Sox’s first pick is 47 and it’s practically impossible to predict who will be there and who the Sox will have interest in at that point so we won’t be going through some of the big names in the draft like normal. Instead, here’s a bunch of useful draft resources.

Soxtalk 2011 Pre-Draft thread

If you know of a good link that I left out (and I know there are plenty) tell us in the comments, but that’s a good starter kit for the draft. We’re not going through the typical preview coverage, but come here for coverage as the draft happens. We plan to have the usual write ups on the top few picks, a Sox draft tracker and other useful info.
