Not to beat a dead horse but....

Going back to the 2007 MLB Draft, who would you rather have taken now? I'm guessing a lot fewer people have a problem with us talking MadBum with our first pick over Porcello or Heyward. And Alderson isn't looking bad either. I know there was outcry for us to take hitters, but can't say I can really blame the Giants for getting who they did. Especially with their track record for developing pitching, and the lack of quality bats in that draft. Really only Heyward and Mills profiled as big time bats that were taken after MadBum, although I must say I was a fan of Dominguez for his overall package with both defense and potential at the plate (though there were big questions about him hitting wise).

Obviously the only real gripe we have is Jackson Williams. Especially when Josh Donaldson can actually hit, and I'm willing to bet he's better behind the dish too. But he's not named Jackson!

Thoughts? Happy with the MadBum? Or are you still wishing we had our 5 tool potential OF in Heyward?
