Their first three picks didn't go there and the fourth was a reliever. So from a talent standpoint offensively, the team wasn't helped at all by any top end draft picks that they had gotten in more recent years. Top it off with the most advanced hitter, Josh Fellhauer was sent to Dayton instead (where he hit pretty darn well too). With the way that the draft worked out, that team just didn't have much offense to work with.
