Re: Reds have 3 ranked in Top 100
What you seem to be missing, over and over again, is that Jocketty's drafting directly contributed to two World Series teams in those years (and later, after he was canned) you say he was a poor drafter. Not only did they win the whole thing twice, they were also in the playoffs how many times during that era?
In an argument like this, I think it's entirely appropriate to point and say, "Scoreboard."
Because what he did worked really, really well for the Cardinals.
