2011 MLB Mock Draft 2.0

**Update: Final Mock Draft from 6.5.11 posted here.*

Here we are a month after our first MLB Mock Draft and we still don’t have a significant amount of credible information to go on. However, with the first weekend of college baseball in the books at least we know who’s hot and who’s not. Alright here comes the disclaimer. If you’re reading this I’m sure you’re aware that while this mock is certain to contain some enlightening and fascinating information, it’s still entirely too early to be reliable or accurate. That being said, our last mock created a great deal of buzz and drove traffic thus we’re setting aside integrity and giving you another prognostication at the events that will transpire this June. Wow that really makes us sound like traffic whores. I suppose we are in that yes, we do enjoy the hits, but you could also say we’re just giving the fans what they want.
