    They were kind of due for a bust. How many first rd picks make the majors? 50%? With Bailey and Bruce before him, that's 67% success. Much better than Bowden's years...

    Bruce hasn't made the big leagues yet. It seems inevitable but I just don't want anyone to jinx him and see him end up with a serious injury. Because he certainly looks like a future superstar.

    Every team in baseball would take our last three first round picks. Throw in Watson as the second round pick last year and we're doing really well.

    I wish the Tigers would promote Maybin.
    so you are at least acknowledging that Bruce may in fact be the #2 prospect in all of baseball?
    Go BLUE!!!

    Anything can happen but I think it is safe to say Bruce was a good pick. A GM can't be expected to forecast disasters
