Re: 2006 Official MLB Draft Thread
Just when you think the Royals have hit bottom in terms of how messed up a franchise can be they let an outgoing regime make a #1 draft pick decision.
I see your point, but the Royals have made a couple of good #1 picks in the last two years (Butler and Gordon) and it isn't impossible to imagine that Moore would want to keep a couple of decision makers out of that scouting department. In my mind, it makes sense to defer to the guys who have been paid to scout, whether you're picking at #1 or #10.
