Draft Minutia

Sunday, June 10th, 2007

A more candid view of the draft would probably rank it right next to the ring toss and three-card monte as a con job. It looks easy. But in reality, it’s brutally hard. One fact sums it up: Since ’65, only three of the sport’s No. 1 overall draft picks are currently worthy of Cooperstown — Griffey, Chipper Jones and Alex Rodriguez. Roughly half of all No. 1 overall picks were close to worthless. You’re just as likely to select a legend where the Nats picked: Barry Bonds, Derek Jeter and Gary Sheffield were all picked sixth.
