Lots of draft news and work (it's why the recap didn't go up last night- d'oh). I've got a lot planned for the next few days- starting with, of course, a liveblogging of the first round and supplemental round on Monday's off day. It'll be like a gamethread, but instead of baseball, it'll be the draft. I'll also be liveblogging the Tigers picks on the second day of the draft and even preparing draft-themed morning ledes.
Also, you'll see a recap of the Sickles draft and how the Tigers did- that'll come up Monday afternoon.
Onto the boxes- Friday's below the jump
