This is my final mock for the 2007 MLB draft which airs tomorrow on ESPN2 at 2pm ET.

I made some changes but tried to stay true to my original mock. The main changes had to do with agent Scott Boras and his crazy bonus demands (supposedly asking for $8-$10M for Matt Wieters). Those players have obviuosly dropped on my mock due to his ridiculous demands.

Now I bring you the final edition of my 2007 MLB Mock Draft!

    I think it’s really good for the sport to start showing the first round on live TV. The complex thing is that these guys will not be house hold names right away, so many fans will forget about them. My first rounds fade in to obscurity when their bodies can’t handle full minor leagues season let alone a major leagues season. Still good none the less.

    I agree, it’s what is hard about advertising the MLB Draft. Most people don’t know these guys and won’t hear from them until 3-4 years from now. But the die hard fans love this stuff!

    Nice work.
