Lets say you are the owner of a baseball franchise, and the MLB for some reason decides to have a MLB draft. Anyone in the MLB, along with their minor league affiliates are all available, and you happen to get the #1 draft pick. Lets assume that you would get to negotiate a contract for them, but you get the advantage that they have to sign. Basically, you get to sign them for a reasonable amount.

So, who would you pick?

I haven't decided yet. I'm pretty sure I would pick a good young starter, but not sure which one yet.

Johan Santana - turns 27 in a couple days, LHP
