Here are the picks after Berrios last year:
Bard, Melotakis, Chargois....and you are confident in the FO ability to draft players? May has all the problems he had last year, when experts said he was not a starter anymore. Worley has been awful. So, Meyer was maybe a good trade. And Buxton was a good pick, and maybe Berrios was a good pick (there are still experts on line saying his stuff is not as great as it appears). So what is so much better about the future than before last year? If it is Buxton, well, they had the 2nd pick in the draft. Any of hte guys taken there or a few picks later look great.....so that's not like some genius move, imo.
So, what, exactly, makes you feel they are doing a great job rebulding the system this last year?
Meyer - plus
Buxton - plus, but any of the picks right after him would be plusses
May - big question mark
Berrios - very mixed opinions on line
Next three picks - not good, or hurt (like they were in college)
Worley - awful so far
So, what did the FO really do that makes you so confident about the future also?
What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you.
