MLB Draft 2011: Winners, Losers and Surprises

2011 MLB Draft results will be analyzed and discussed in this live blog

The 2011 MLB Amateur Draft is upon us, set to begin at 4pm EST on the MLB network and on

Unlike year's past where we had a clear-cut no-brainer choice for No. 1 overall such as Bryce Harper in 2010 and Stephen Strasburg in 2009, this first-year player draft doesn't have that can't-miss selection at the top.

UCLA pitcher Gerrit Cole is believed to be the guy that the Pittsburgh Pirates will take No. 1 overall.  But they could easily opt to go in another direction and take Rice third baseman Anthony Rendon or Virginia's talented left-hander Danny Hultzen.

Coming your way shortly are the MLB Draft's biggest winners, losers and surprises.

Let's get started.
