Okay, two days are in the books, now for the fun (and insanity) that is the final day of the draft. Today the Indians will make selections in the 11th through 40th rounds and then things will end.
Like we have done so far, we will be posting all the profiles for the picks to the "News" section of the site which is located to the upper left of the site below the site logo. These draft profiles will not be posted to the main page or show on the slider so as to not bog down the main page. For a direct link to the "News" page to see all the draft profiles, go here:
Today's action will be much more fast and furious than yesterday as there will be no one minute interval between picks like there was up through the 10th round yesterday. This means we will fly through rounds in 5-10 minutes as teams will be making picks right after one another.
With this in mind, with today being Saturday and life getting in the way, we will NOT be posting reports on players 15-30 minutes after the pick. Those will be posted later tonight sometime after 9pm, so check back then for the writeups on each pick. As usual, IBI draft guru Jeff Ellis will be providing short writeups for all 30 players drafted today and I'll also be adding brief comments and info to the capsules when they go up. So be sure to check the site all day to see who the Indians pick, and then check back for their full draft profiles.
I will also have a draft recap up for both Day 2 and Day 3 together, and will either post that on Sunday or Monday. With it being the weekend it has been a lot harder to get in contact with people for information needed for the detailed recaps, so it may not go up until Monday.
Here's hoping the Indian can pluck a few late round gems today like Cody Allen, Vinnie Pestano or even a Jim Thome!

I was looking for this year's Myles/Rodriguez type middle round pick to get excited about, Loopstok is the leader in the clubhouse.
