you should have just checked the mlb thread before posting this.

NO. No one cares. None of those players will make a difference on a Major League team for like another 5 years.

Let me know when Joe Tuesday gets called up to the Mud Hens then I'll start to care.
I've been watching the Braves picks mostly.

Buster Posey was already a major league difference maker his first year. Would've beasted in 2011 but he was hit illegally at the plate injuring him for the year.

3× All-Star (2012, 2013, 2015)
3× World Series champion (2010, 2012, 2014)
NL MVP (2012)
NL Rookie of the Year (2010)
3× Silver Slugger Award (2012, 2014, 2015
Paul quantrills kid in the top 10 nice

Check and see if the HD pitchers sign, if they go to college instead, they definitely made the right choice

You're comparing apples and oranges here. I'm talking about the time a player is drafted to the time they become good for a major league team. Most good players take about 5 years.

Of course there are the few guys every year you can pick out like Posey who won ROTY that is the exception who are just great players and move up the ranks faster. What like 1% of baseball? Dude dominated AA and quickly was moved to AAA. Was ranked the Giants 2nd best prospect. Posey also had 3 years of college ball before being drafted.

Buster Posey
College 06/07/08 Freshman all american SS, moved to C and was 2nd in voting for the Johnny Bench award, won the Johnny Bench award as a Jr.
Drafted by the Giants 5th overall 1st rnd. AA/AAA in 2008
Called up in 2009 because of an injury he had 17 at bats and 2 hits.
Called up in 2010 played 1st base then became the starting catcher after a trade and the rest is history.

So it took Posey 3 years to be great at the major league level. Good on him. Compared to a HS kid that's drafted Posey had nearly 4 full season of College and Minor ball before breaking out in the bigs.

My point still stands. No one was swinging from Buster Posey's ballz in 08/09.

Call me in 2 or 3 years then when Joe Friday gets called up to the show.
lol
I followed it. Giants' first pick was late, #59, but they supposedly got a top 20-30 kid, Bryan Reynolds from Vandy. Be nice if we picked an OF who could actually play at mlb level--both at the plate and in the field. He's on your list as a 3B, but played CF for the Commodores.

I agree with you, but Posey was considered the premier MLB ready prospect in the 2008 draft. A ton of mocks had him going 1st overall to the Rays. He was a big deal from the day the Giants selected him. Any SF fan who knew baseball was swinging from his nuts right away. lol

But yeah, thats a total outlier. Most prospects need 4-5 years in the minors before theyre ready.

Can't wait to buy a Kyle Funkhouser jersey. Lets get Funky!

Dude was drafted 35th overall in 2015 by the Dodgers. He decided to go back to college for his Sr year had a meh year and the Tigers draft him in the 4th round 115 overall.

Draft means nothing unless these kids actually sign contracts.

Funkhouser will sign as he basically has no leverage since he is a senior. Not a smart financial move to have not signed with LA last year.

BTW.. My alma mater UCSB beat his team and is going to the College WS. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
