MLB Draft: It starts shortly. What will happen after Bryce Harper goes first to the Nationals? According to the mock drafts floating around, it looks like the Pirates are interested in a kid named Manny Machado.

Our favorite MLB draft tidbit is that Mike Piazza, one of the best catchers of all-time, was taken in the 62th round in 1988. [USA Today, MLB.com]
