Day one of the MLB draft is in the books. As part of SoD’s crackdown on worthless posts (who I am kidding?), I have chosen to forgo the annual pilgrimage to the banks of the river of shit that is the draft day grading breakdown. Mostly because this timeless art of speculative ranking is like signing Eric Byrnes to a multi-million dollar long-term deal — it sounds like a good idea at first but in hindsight you just end up looking foolish. Rather than speculating on things about which I have no idea (like out-of-state high school baseball players), I have chosen a more scientific method. This also allows me to debut what I believe to be a mandatory category of evaluation for any draft board: Name Value.
