I don't think posting busts and talking about them is negative at all. I think it shines a light on how difficult it is.
I like to see lists like this and for better understanding and peer comparison I'd like to see lists from every team.
All the teams miss and miss a lot.
This isnt a slam on anyone but I think Major League Baseball front offices are more informed and less confident and the majority of us are less informed and more confident."9. Lipstick"

But after a player has multiple seasons in the minors, the gap between front offices and fans narrows a bit, and continues to do so as a player makes it to the majors and sustains a career there. By the time a guy is a 30 year old free agent with 6 or 7 MLB seasons, the gap in FO and fan knowledge is a fraction of what it was on the day that player was drafted. How much that gap still is by that point will always be a controversy.
At any rate, totally agree about the randomness of the MLB amateur draft. It seems to have more high-round busts and low-round successes than the other three major sports' drafts combined. Hoping the Twins are on their collective game for this year's.

The busts and flops are the ying to draft day steals yang. It's part of the unique intrigue of sports and everyone should be able to enjoy that discourse without your nonsense.
