The Rays — remember, they dropped the Devil from the name in November 2007 — would go on to the 2008 World Series, thanks largely to outstanding draft picks such as Carl Crawford, Evan Longoria, B.J. Upton, James Shields and Andy Sonnanstine, but they didn’t do themselves any longevity favors http://www.officialpredatorsteamonline.com/Kevin_Fiala_Jersey in 2008. As you see, only two of their 50 draft picks (27 signed, 23 didn’t) reached the majors, and one of those Kevin Fiala Jersey two was Tim Beckham, the No. 1 overall pick. We’ll start with the ugly.
The Rockies, Astros and Mariners only had three players reach the majors, but the Rockies landed Charlie Blackmon, the type of talent who alone nearly makes a draft successful. Jason Castro (11.3 rWAR) was the best of the Astros’ three, and Josh Fields (1.6 rWAR) has had the best career of Seattle’s picks, though he was traded to the Red Sox and then picked by the Astros in the Rule 5 draft before making his big-league debut.
