Open Thread: 2013 MLB Draft

Chris Sale DID gain weight. - Rob Grabowski / USA TODAY Sports

Discuss the picks as they fly off the board

Lost in all the draft preparation was this great quote from Chris Sale, when asked why he fell to the White Sox at No. 13 in 2010:

When asked why he slipped a few notches, Sale pointed to his slender build as a reason that might have scared off possible suitors. He laughed at the idea that it was a signability issue, pointing out that he was engaged, had a child and was ready to go for "a case of beer and a bus ticket."

If you missed it or ignored it, here's a breakdown of most (if not all) the players linked to the Sox in draft rumors:

The latest mock drafts from Jim Callis and Keith Law offered no last-minute changes, but Law's pre-draft chat might inspire some of us here to rally behind Florida pitcher Jonathon Crawford:

Matt (Minnesota): You have the Tigers taking Jonathan Crawford, which seems like a popular prediction. What are they seeing in him that you don't, do you think? Is this a "we can make him right" kind of thing? Or a "we think he's better than you do" kind of thing?

Klaw: They think he's better than I think he is. They could be right. I didn't like Chris Sale out of the draft, not as a first rounder, because of his arm action, the same reason I don't like Crawford as a first rounder.

Draft begins at 6 p.m. Central on MLB Network, and here's MLB.com's Draft Tracker to keep up.
