I'll be the first to admit that while I like the game of baseball and generally keep up with it and the Astros during the season, I'm not an avid fan. I'm certainly not enough of a fan or baseball nerd to understand what the 40-round major league draft means or who is being drafted or even where they are holding it. It does bring up a lot of questions, like why is the damn thing so long?
I do, however, follow the Rockets pretty closely and have for many years. And as I did some reading about which high school prospect the Astros took in round 33 (or whatever), I began to realize that the MLB draft is a lot like the a season of basketball for the Rockets, at least in the last few years.
Here are five of them.
