Day one of the MLB draft is in the books.  As part of SoD’s crackdown on worthless posts (who I am kidding?), I have chosen to forgo the annual pilgrimage to the banks of the river of shit that is the draft day grading breakdown.  Mostly because this timeless art of speculative ranking is like signing Eric Byrnes to a multi-million dollar long-term deal — it sounds like a good idea at first but in hindsight you just end up looking foolish.  Rather than speculating on things about which I have no idea (like out-of-state high school baseball players), I have chosen a more scientific method.  This also allows me to debut what I believe to be a mandatory category of evaluation for any draft board: Name Value.

Rocket Sauce . . . In his recent soft toss session spin control interview with Mike and Mike (one’s an athlete, one’s a dork…and there BOTH named “Mike” — let the hi jinx ensue!), Roger Clemens busted out a new strategy for denying the allegations that he took steroids — he has a family history of heart problems.  This new ammunition presumably comes from Clemens’ new PR firm and Roger wasted no time in going to that well early and often.  He proceeded to act as if this were the smoking gun, the revelation which would make us all stand up and cheer “INNOCENT!”  What’s Rocket’s family history like, you say?  Well his brother and his step dad have both had heart problems.  Step dad?  Take it easy Rocket.  Why don’t you sit this next one out, stop talking for a while.
