Schwarz on Best/Worst Draft Picks
There’s a two-edged sword to writing a group blog in tandem with bright people. On the one hand, you’re always learning, and you want to rise to the occasion of others’ good posts with solid efforts of your own. But then you see a bunch of great stuff you don’t want to knock off the front page.
So I’ll save my longer material for next week and offer instead this quick hit. In advance of the draft next week, check out the always reliable Alan Schwarz’ rundown of the best and worst high draft picks. The Mariners make the list in a couple of places, with A-Rod deservedly at No. 1, and with an anecdote about Tito Nanni that you may find amusing.
