A little blurb from the Chicago Tribune:
If you don't think success in the draft is important for an organization, consider this comparison. In the last 10 years, Cincinnati got only six of 60 players it picked in the first five rounds of the draft to the big leagues, the lowest total in the majors. Detroit, meanwhile, advanced the most players, 23 of 58 players.
Not that it would surprise me but is there a list somewhere that would verify the accuracy of this statement?
Also, is it your opinion that the Reds are moving in a positive direction to reverse this trend?
