I wonder what happens if two team finish level for draft order. Do they flip a coin for it? It could be quite significant, especially if there's a massive talent at the top of the chart, and then a steep fall-off. For instance, in 2005 when we got J-Up, the #2 pick was Alex Gordon, who has hit .224 for Kansas over the past couple of years. Bit of a difference there. Anyway, no line-up avalable at point of writing, and I won't be about to add one later: I'm sure one of the editors will do the needful. I have to go troubleshoot some Macintosh email after work (joy...), and we're then off to Mesa for the IZW show.

This will therefore be a Sprankton recap, who is back off the Internet DL, for his first appearance in the role since June 15, so I am sure he's well rested and ready to deliver a scintillating report on tonight's proceedings. As noted in the Snakebytes comments, it's reported that Ryan Church has arrived, with space being made for him by the somewhat odd move of putting Juan Gutierrez on the DL with shoulder inflammation. Not quite sure how that decision was reached, but it's not as if it makes much difference. Enjoy the game, see you in the comments (or, in my case, recap).
