Baseball-heavy Rotunda Roundup today:
Congrats to Danny Hultzen, the 2nd overall pick in the 2011 MLB Draft by the Mariners! (Also, congrats on managing to avoid both the Pirates and the Royals). As a supplement to the coverage here, a pretty cool slide show on VirginiaSports.com to check out if you haven't already.
"Seattle PI" talks about the Mariners' reasoning and the buildup to their pick.
Lookout Landing, a Mariners blog on SBNation, also breaks down the selection. Personally, I find the mixed nature of the comments to be amusing (unfortunately, the blog requires a waiting period after registering before going to sing Hultzen's praises). Any Mariner fans out there care to share your thoughts?
We will be previewing the weekend's Super Regional all week. Start it off with Lambeth Field's recap of how the Anteaters won the Los Angeles Regional.
