Gooood Morning Phillies Fans!!!
Here’s a thread to talk about the 2017 First Year Player Draft. It won’t actually occur until 7:00 pm tonight. But this will provide a place for any draft discussions. I’ll post a new one each day, as well as a 2017 Draft Tracker.
Coverage starts on MLB Network and MLB.com with a preview show at 6:00 PM ET.
Round One begins at 7:00 PM ET thru Competitive Balance Round A (picks 1-36) and will be on MLB Network and stream on MLB.com..
Round two and Competitive Balance Round B (picks 37-75) will only be streamed on MLB.com.
Rounds 3-10 will be streamed Tuesday on MLB.com.
Rounds 11-40 will conclude on Wednesday on MLB.com.
The draft tracker and the daily draft discussions will be included under “2017 Draft Discussions and Picks” selection on the menu under “The Draft”.
Things have been pretty good for a while now, but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention this reminder from last year. Thank you for your continued observance.
Please be considerate toward each other when commenting. Language is monitored and blocked automatically. But I have to monitor arguments. I would prefer not having to block anyone.
Last year some comments became vicious and personal during the draft and I had to ask Gregg to block a couple of people due to personal attacks and language directed at each other and toward other commenters. Soon after my request, Gregg gave me the necessary authority to block people. So, I don’t have to ask this year, I can react much quicker as I monitor these threads this week. I will not hesitate to block bad behavior before it gets out of hand. Thank you.
