Bless You Boys managing editor, Rob Rogacki, joins host Brandon Day for some early reactions to the Tigers' picks in the 2018 MLB draft. The first 10 rounds are in the books, and beyond is chaos, so it's time to look at the Tigers' approach and break down their picks. Early returns seem positive. The Tigers played the percentages at 1-1, and then made some pretty bold plays by their standards in the later rounds. They got a nice collection of athletes and guys with loud tools in hopes of a big reward.

  • Does the birth of the Tigers analytics department show up in their draft strategy?
  • The Tigers selected quite a nice mix of college and high school positional talent.
  • Casey Mize freed the Tigers to take some shots in the next few rounds.
  • Parker Meadows has the potential to be a power-hitting centerfielder. 
  • A look through the later round selections.
