Unfortunately, we're not able to listen to the radio broadcast of this afternoon's game, but we have our workstation's RAM revved up to the limit tracking the Jays-Yanks (up 7-6 in the 7th) and the draft.
Milwaukee ruined the Jays fun by picking Canadian Brett Lawrie, presumably because the Canadian-heavy front office in brew city wants to stick it to J.P. and the Jays. (We're actually making that up, but it would be fun if the finagglings amonst MLB GMs were like an episode of The Hills.)
So here's the Jays pick. (Drum roll!)...David Cooper, a lefthanded hitting first basemen from the University of California (via Cal State Fullerton). Steve Lyons, who doesn't know enough about baseball to keep a job as GM but knows just enough to fill the airwaves on ESPN 2, says that Cooper will hit about 25 homers and hit .300. If he's right, then he should be about on par with Lyle Overbay, meaning that we'll have another decade of JaysTalk callers complaining that the first baseman isn't enough of a power threat. Fun.
