    Biggest disagreements so far are not having Clayton Schrader or Tyler Townsend in the top 20, although I understand the reasoning on both.

    Yeah. Agreed on this. Both counts (the ranking and the reasoning for not including them.)

    That's ok guys, there are always going to be disagreements. You can build an argument for Schrader and Townsend to be the top 20, no doubt, but at the end of the day I went with guys that I felt had a better chance of doing something in the major leagues over guys with higher possible ceilings, but less of a chance due to some glaring weaknesses. (How's that for one long run-on sentence?)

    Yep. Completely understand. Mostly quibbling about (vague) probabilities at this point.

    No Hobgood, no Givens, no Ohlman, no Coffey, Townsend at 24.

    Just a brutal draft class.

    And this is how it looks with just the top 10:
    2011 draft: 3
    2010 draft: 3
    2009 draft: none
    2008 draft: 1
    international FA: 2
    domestic FA: 1

    Brutal may end up being a good adjective for our 2009 efforts.
