It appears very unlikely we end up with any special talents like we have the past three years. We do have a pretty good shot at bolstering our minor league system with decent talent. Basically unless we trade away that lottery choice our scouting department will get a chance to shine.
IMO this is a good thing as once you get past Bundy and Gausmann the talent level plummets. Yes, I know Jonathan Schoop looks solid so far. However, it's still a huge drop off.
The team should be able to acquire a number of decent prospects that make that silly top ten look a little more presentable.
Mike Trout was drafted 25th overall in 2009 and he's the best player in baseball. It's all about scouting.
