Re: Reds have 3 ranked in Top 100
The yankees always win and they draft fine. So do the Red sox. There are 40 rounds in the mlb draft and international signings. Draft position matters less in baseball than any other sport.
And I never said he did a poor job. i said he built a poor farm system between 2000 and when he was fired that left the organization completely hamstrung in 06, 07, and beyond.
I will say again, I am only talking about his drafting and player development between 2000 and 2007. I couldn't care less about his drafts from the 90's. My whole point is that he built his team (drafts from the 90's) and then did little to prepare when those players aged and left.
READ my posts less selectively scrap.
Also, cards have been in contention between 2009 and now and mozeliak and crew are doing just fine in the draft. Draft position doesn't mean a whole lot. The mariners have been drafting in the top ten every year since 2003 but they still suck. Tampa had top drafts for forever and it took them a decade to amount to anything. How about pittsburgh? draft position means nothing.
Finally, if you read my very first post it says, "Unless he changed his opinion on the draft." MY whole point was that i hope he doesn't end up neglecting the reds farm system as he did the cardinals.
