It's very hit-and-miss, sure, but not completely random by any means. I did a quick study on the active guys who were HoF locks or would be within a couple of years at career rates of production. The vast majority were first rounders, and there were as many who were first overall picks as were drafted after the second round.

a 50% success rate in terms of having major league careers for first-rounders is still, far, far better than for the rounds after it. You can point to Pujols, I haven't checked but I bet he's the only guy to have completed a full MLB season for several rounds either side of him.

A nice lighthearted post, & some trivia I did not know & will now remember. Of course you were the butt of brash criticism, but what do you expect from a New Yorker. You're dealing with another level of fantasy geek in the Leftovers forum, so next time just refine your post a little more maybe.

Nah, they'd have signed A-Rod the season before Jeter hit FA.

Snake's and Brit, you're either implying that the Yanks have superior general managing, or that you're jealous that they're the only team in MLB with a higher payroll than the downtrodden Red Sox.
