I think its safe to say we scouted very few HS players lol

Elias could only get to so many HS games.

While posting the stats over that period, I noticed that they also had in common a high K/BB ratio. A lot of them have strikingly low walk rates.

It looks like the last few HS schoolers and the Redshirt Mine Engineer might be interesting. Not being Luke.

I'd say that has been less of a problem. Trading them before age 27 maybe. 

Well, some of those under 27ers looked better after they left, but either way, I hope the new approach yields even better development.

To expound on Jon’s comments, I don’t think you need to target ceiling when your first pick has best catcher in baseball ceiling and your second pick has 55/55 hit power SS ceiling. That’s a lot of ceiling right there.

What Jon is saying “to me” is exactly what this organization needed.  We needed a solid draft.

If teams got 2 All-Stars, and 2 solid contributors a year from the 40 player draft each and every year combined with 6 years of service time you'd theoretically have a roster (24 at least) always from the draft.  Clearly FA happens and you don't always get #1 overall... and there's lots of misses.  It seems like 2 is a good target.  Also makes me wonder about the 3 guy draft the Mets did and if it does make more sense considering the number of misses throughout the 40.  Guess in a few years we'll see how it worked for them. 

2 high ceiling guys and a lot of potential solid contributors is nice.  As players/minors improve hopefully if helps the overall competition and balance as well.  Clearly that's every teams goal, but hopefully Elias can do that both here and internationally.

Some interesting breakdowns of the types of players we picked, and a few tidbits from Elias.    One thing he did say was that the draft isn’t completely synced up with the player development side yet.   In the future they’ll be drafting guys with a more specific idea of how they plan to develop them.

Thanks for this, I was looking for certain traits, especially with pitchers, but don’t find those traits in a large enough quantity to mark a trend.
