Draft 2019 Blog Post (not liveblogging! sorry!)

Hello blog land! I know, I don't write here anymore. If you want to see my photos and stuff from when I'm in Japan doing the ridiculous baseball circuit, basically, follow me on Twitter. This year's Fighters spring training in Arizona was so frustrating I couldn't write about it (although a newspaper writer there decided to write an article about me); I spent my usual spring and fall back in Japan, and I might go see the Fighters do fall camp in Arizona if they ever post more details about it in time to make travel arrangements.  Who knows.  This summer they also absolutely broke my heart when they traded Kagiya and Fujioka to the Giants; my fall trip definitely had a lot of people saying "So sorry about the trade, you must have been devastated.  At least you still have Miyadai."

I was in NYC for a work conference this week, so since the draft was at an even MORE awkward time for me than expected, I just translated everything in the morning/afternoon.

Here's my table.

Status: Done, except for the fact that EVERY YEAR the Hawks don't bother making all of the information available about their players, so I may or may not fill in height/weight for them later.

I will also fill in the actual draft round 1 lottery info below, despite that I wasn't liveblogging, and I have a few comments about a few players in here as well.
