Well, actually, there's not a whole lot to review. The Pacers drafted Miles Plumlee, who I don't think will see the floor unless the team needs somebody with some extra fouls. They also gave up some cash to get somebody from UCSB, who I also don't think will have an impact. The core is the there for the Pacers, this draft was going to be more or less a waste and everybody knew it.
My bigger problem is that a player like Meyers Leonard, who did approximately jack squat in two years of college, gets drafted eleventh overall. Players who gave four years of excellent production, like the Purdue trio of Johnson, Moore, and Hummel, get drafted late first (JJ) and late second round (the others). That just doesn't make sense to me. This is why you see so many draft busts. It's kind of sickening, actually.
So, basically, the less said about the draft, the better. On the baseball front, Anthony Rizzo looks like the real deal. I know the Cubs most likely kept him in Iowa until June so his arbitration wouldn't kick in for an extra year, but this guy just looks like a hitting machine. I guess we'll see in a couple months after scouts and pitchers get a good look at him, but so far, the hype looks justified. It's probably not enough to keep the Cubs out of the basement, but one can hope.
In some other news, the Fourth of July is coming up, and your first-place Indianapolis Indians are at home, complete with a great fireworks show. You should go check it out if you don't have any other plans. Or if your plans are done before seven.
To send you into your weekend, here's a nice video of a boy snagging a foul ball away from an older gent using his popcorn bucket.
