MLB Draft 2011: Where Can You Watch The Draft Action?

In terms of the Major League Baseball Draft, "action" is a relative term. Once again, draft choices can't be traded, which takes away a little bit of drama from things. . .then again, given the unpredictability of the minor league system and how players will develop, some might see the inability to trade draft choices as a good thing, since they know that they are going to get young talent to develop regardless of where in the process they might be selecting.

If you would like to watch the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft unfold, you can do so if you have access to the MLB Network (Channel 213 on your DirecTV box). They will be providing live coverage from their studios in New Jersey, as they have since 2007 (the first year the MLB Draft was broadcast), and they will have analysis and breakdowns of all of the picks.

In the event that you don't have the MLB Network, the draft will be simulcast on the MLB.com website. In addition, you will be able to get analysis from any number of sources, such as Baseball Nation, ESPN, Baseball Nation, SI.com, and particularly Baseball Nation, which happens to be part of the SB Nation family of websites.

Of course, we will have everything relating to the Minnesota Twins right here on SB Nation Minnesota (in this very thread) as it happens. The action will get underway at 6 PM Central time, and both the first round and the compensatory round will take place this evening. That means that, by the time things conclude tonight, the Minnesota Twins organization will have three new members, and we will have profiles of them up right here for you to check out.
