Just eye balling it, it looks like Tigers are good at drafting "stars", not so good at depth.

HaHa! Now there is something truly and satisfyingly ironic: A post from Lee in which he gives the 'eyeball' test to quantified data!


(not that there is anything wrong with that.....)

commendable work... but charts are our friends.

Thanks for the constructive criticism. I've been writing these sort of absurdly long message board posts for years, but for whatever reason, I've never really thought to master the art of tables and charts. Hopefully it's a bit less of an eyesore now.

I think the Tigers have done pretty well with their first pick, at least, since JV in 04.

04 - Verlander

05 - Maybin

06 - Miller

07 - Porcello

08 - Perry

09 - Turner

10 - Castellanos

11 - McCann

12 - Thompson

13 - Crawford

14 - Hill

The only bust is Perry. Maybin and Miller both looked like can't miss guys, both have had some success, and were obviously put to great use in the Cabrera deal. Porcello is a win. Turner hasn't turned out great, but netted us Anibal. Castellanos looks good, certainly a win even if he doesn't become a star. McCann looks really good for a 2nd rounder. Thompson has done well at every level and looks like a player we will miss. Jury still out on Crawford and Hill, but they are both legit prospects.

Castelanos looks good? Seriously?

140 Strike outs with 11 home runs. Lead the team in errors.

Not sure what you are looking at.
