Re: Just thought of something - 2008 draft
Pretty ridiculous that a team would rather sign a 5th starter for $40M but won't pony up an extra $2M for a potential ace or cleanup hitter. The whole draft system is screwed up. It's completely inefficient.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
