So draft coverage will run on Monday and Tuesday. The adventure will start with the Morning Lede on Monday, spotlighting draft stuff. Monday afternoon will feature a look at the Sickles Mock Draft and predictions for the Tigers. The first round liveblog will be at 8PM, and will cover the entire first round and supplemental. Tuesday will feature a morning lede recapping what the Tigers did with picks #44 and #48 as well as other baseball news. Then, starting at noon, I'll be liveblogging Tigers picks in rounds 2-30. Hope everyone'll join me!
