The MLB Draft is today, and as I’ve said before, this is a pivotal draft for this current administration. Who are the Reds going to draft? Who should they draft?

Let’s discuss this draft, and previous drafts, right here. Feel free to use this as an open thread to discuss the draft as it happens this evening, as well. Remember, the draft is going to be televised in part, on MLB Network.

Here are Redleg Nation‘s exclusive Draft Trackers for previous years: 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003. These are always linked over in the right sidebar, and they’re an interesting resource. Bill Lack does a great job keeping these updated for us.

So, what are your thoughts about the draft?

UPDATE: The Reds have selected Mike Leake, a RHP from Arizona State University, with their first pick in the 2009 MLB Draft. Initial impression: strong selection for the Reds. I’m a fan of Leake.
