Peanuts? Check. Cracker jacks? Check. Jersey on? Check. Two Red Bull 6-packs? Double check!

The three-day, 40-round MLB First-Year Player Draft begins this evening with the Houston Astros owning the first overall pick. If there's one day to tune in, however, it's tonight when the first two rounds take place.

Whether or not the Astros will use their first pick on a hurler like Stanford's Mark Appel or Oklahoma's Jonathan Gray or opt for a loud bat like that of San Diego's Kris Bryant or UNC's Colin Moran remains to be seen.

There will be 33 picks in the first round—which includes six compensatory picks to teams who lost high-profile free agents during the offseason—and 29 picks in the second round.

Sandwiched between the first and second rounds is the first of two competitive balance rounds (the second following the conclusion of round two). The function of the competitive balance rounds, which we are still in their formative years, is to award (via a lottery) additional picks to the teams with the smallest market and/or lowest revenue.  

These picks have potential to be pivotal due to the unpredictability of the MLB draft. No prospect is a sure thing.

The translation of talent from high school and college ball to the majors is a gift, and one that does not come wrapped in pretty paper with a bow. Unlike the immediate impact NFL and NBA rookies can have on the game, MLB prospects must work their tail off to reach the professional level. And without the need to declare, some may even choose to gauge professional interest then return for another collegiate season.

It's going to be a long three days for MLB teams, but a weekend filled with promise.

This is also the first year the draft will fall on a weekend. By altering the schedule of the MLB draft, Mr. Selig is catering to us, the fans. 

Now all we can do is hope that our team drafts the next budding superstar. Enjoy!
