2011 MLB Draft: Colorado Rockies Continue Pursuit Of Additional Talent

Oh, hey! It's MLB commissioner Bud Selig announcing a 2010 draft pick. Who will he announce for the Colorado Rockies in the 2011 MLB Draft?

When June comes rolling around, the Colorado Rockies will hold the 20th overall pick in MLB's Rule 4 First-Year Player Draft. That selection would have moved up three picks to No. 17, but the Arizona Diamondbacks, San Diego Padres, and the Milwaukee Brewers all failed to sign their first-round choices. As a result, those teams received a compensatory pick slotted immediately after where they selected in the 2010 draft order, giving the D'Backs two picks in the top 10 (No. 3 & No. 7). 

As I said back in November, I wasn't going away from Purple Row; rather, I was just shifting priorities. For the majority of you who don't know, I gained my chops around here during the 2005 draft when Rox Girl and I went back and forth over the Rockies' draft picks that year. I believe we made it through at least 40 rounds.

Anyway, I want this to be a weekly Friday edition during the college season to keep everyone up-to-date on who's rising, who's falling, and everything in between. So this will highlight important games and players each week as well as a longer look at a player of interest to the Rockies.

In lieu of doing any of that this week, I would like suggestions from everyone on what they would like to see in this. Given that I have a week to work on this, I should be able to handle most requests.
