The problem with the concept of "10-15% risk" is that I don't think the word "value" from the article lollipopcurve posted and the word "risk" are interchangable terms. I'm still waiting for a definition of "value" from that article, but it appears that I need to spend five bucks to get it (good grief, eh?).Originally Posted by Cedric
The funny thing about the whole HS vs. College pitcher thing is that I don't have an issue with drafting a High School pitcher.
WHAT??? WHAT DID STEEL JUST SAY???????
Heh. There's a qualifier to the above statement of course. And that qualifier is "...IF the situation is right."
But I'll tell ya', if it's in the top 10 of Round One and the guy isn't absolutely the head-and-shoulders best pitcher in the draft, it's pretty much never right (I did a study on this one myself). But from the middle of round one on, hey go for it if it's the best talent and value pick available.
