Or does that pass for analysis? Note to jalcorn, Wil Meyers was a 3rd round pick, so he was passed by every team. The point I was making was that is a real prospect. And the detritus selected by the Best Management Team in Baseball stands in pretty stark contrast against it.

next thing you’ll be harping about is Mark Cuban or Mario Lemieux buying the team or something.

Hindsight drafting in sports is a ridiculous exercise.

And in news of other than A ball, Wil Myers was named minor league player of the year by USA today. Pretty good prospect there.

And picked 7 spots after Evan Chambers by the best management team in baseball. Brooks Pounders of course was the 2nd round pick, and Tony Sanchez the first that year.
