In response to moonslav59's comment:
Baseball draftees are hard to evaluate and project. There is also disagreement among the best of the best scouts on who is better than someone else. Let's hope our management team makes the right choice.
They largely have done so for the past 10 years, so let's hope it continues.
They have had some hits and misses.
Going back 10 years (1-2 round picks only.):
(S) - supp pick
2003: D Murphy, M Murton (S), A Alvarez (S), M Hall (Supps for Cliff Floyd)
2004: Pedroia (2nd round) We lost our #1 by signing Foulke.
2005: Ellsbury & Lowrie (S- O Cabrera), C Hansen & M Bowden (S- D Lowe), Buchholtz & J Egan (P Martinez) (We lost our 2 picks due to signing Renteria & D Wells)
2006: J Place, J Masterson (2nd), K Johnson (S- J Damon), C Clay & A Bates (S- Mueller)
2007: H Morris (2nd), N Hagadone (S- A Gonzalez), R Dent (S- Foulke)
