Up until this year's draft, we have not had many top picks, so in this light, Theo's drafts have been pretty good. Now, we often made up for lower draft picks with several comp picks when Theo allowed FAs to walk, and we often drafted players who lower teams could not afford to sign.
After the great 2005 draft... some good- some NOT SO GOOD...
2006: Bard with the 28th pick, Masterson in the second round and Kalish in the9th was pretty good. (Bates in the 3rd.)
2007: Middlebrooks in the 5th. #55 pick (our first that year) Hagadone traded.
2008: Kelly (30th) traded. #108 Weiland traded. Lava in the 6th, Vazquez in the 9th.
2009: #77 A Wilson, 4th rd. Hazelbaker.
2010: #20 Vitek, 36 Brentz, 39 Ranaudo, 57 Workman, 110 Coyle, 4th rd Cecchini.
2011: Barnes, Swihart, Owens, JBJ and more...
2012: Marrero, B Johnson, Light, Callahan, Buttrey...
