Podcast: Keith Law discusses the draft

Keith Law was again live in studio with me for Tuesday's Baseball Today podcast, as we talked quite a bit about the amateur draft but also the veteran players.

1. The Astros surprised some with the first overall pick, while the Pirates got a potential bargain at pick No. 8. Keith recaps Round 1.

2. I was struck by how excited these youngsters were with being drafted, and there was a notable backflip. Can you see someone in an NBA or NFL draft doing that?

3. Meanwhile, on the field, Chicago Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro has angered his manager, and we've got stats to prove he has a point.

4. Emailers want to know more about the draft, its financial implications, what it means to have an "advisor" and about how the Mariners are proceeding.

5. Tuesday is a big day in MLB and as the draft continues. Keith highlights some potential draftees and we discuss the big AL East and NL East matchups.

So download and listen to Tuesday's Baseball Today podcast and learn more about the draft! Mark Simon will join me Wednesday and Keith returns Thursday!
