At least 1st round picks in MLB are somewhat likely to bust, more so than in NBA for instance.
Going from 2000 on you have Bryan Bullington, Delmon Young, Matt Bush, Luke Hochevar, Tim Beckham, Mark Appel, Brady Aiken, Mickey Moniak on one hand, Adrian Gonzalez, Joe Mauer, Justin Upton, David Price, Stephen Strasburg, Gerrit Cole, Carlos Correa, Dansby Swanson on the other.
Still that's about 50% success rate in finding really good to exceptional MLB players.
This is why our 16 draft is looking pretty good.... If we get Jones as an everyday player, getting 4 legit players from one draft is pretty dang good..
