throw in supplemental choices like Zack Cozart and Todd Frazier.
all have made the majors and become productive players.
not many teams have that track record of getting productive players in the 1st round even the best ones have had players who do nothing in the minors.
Look at the total number of draft picks a ML team has per season and how many turn out to be ML talent. Heck are best player wasn't even a first round pick. Of all the professional sports, baseball is the biggest crap shoot when it comes to the draft.
