"With the 6th pick in the 2010 WNBA Draft, the Washington Mystics select . . ."

Your guess is as good as ours -- as long as you're guessing a post player -- and there are a handful of posts who are likely to be available when Donna O puts the Mystics on the clock tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon. (Tina Charles, unfortunately, will not be one of them.) If you haven't yet had a chance to read GM Angela Taylor's assessment of these potential draft picks in our Q. and A. with Angela immediately below, you might want to do so before tomorrow's draft.

Also, don't miss Mike Fratto's pre-draft analysis here on the Mystics' web site. (If that name sounds familiar to you, yes, it's the same excellent sportswriter Mike Fratto who worked for the Washington Times before the Times got rid of its sports section. The Mystics were smart enough to hire Mike to write for them, and the BCs look forward to reading more of Mike's coverage this summer.) Katie Carrera's draft day article for the Washington Post is here.

A few questions as we await the draft . . . Will the injured Jayne Appel fall to number six? Will the Mystics pick her if she does?

All will be revealed tomorrow. . . The draft begins at 3PM ET, with the first round televised on ESPN2, and the other rounds shown on NBA TV and ESPNU. And in case you don't have a TV at work (or even if you do), the Mystics brain trust will be live blogging from their "war room" during the draft. Just click on the team's web site.

Go Mystics!

I am guessing the Mystics select J Monroe from Flordia State. We need more post players. We have a boat load of guards to choose from already.

Monroe needs to bulk up a little bit. Alysha Clark from Middle Tennessee State and Kelsey Griffin from Nebraska would be good selections here. But, if Appel does fall to six, then take her!

If Appel's available, fans are going to have to realize she will be a future project, and not a contributor for this season. She needs some serious recuperation time.
