John Barr: Anatomy of a Draft

This was posted in some of the draft-heavy threads, but I felt like it needed its own fan post so that those who don't read all the fanpost draft details would see it. Choice quotes: We had begun seven days ago with 823 names on magnetized nameplates. From a database compiled and distilled by Adam and Eric, Yeshayah punched up video clips, projecting them onto the front screen. Simultaneously on a side screen he projected a spreadsheet showing the player’s statistics, the scouts’ "grades’’ and evaluations plus notes about intangibles like character, competitiveness and maturity. ... Then we ranked the players one by one. Medical or "signability’’ concerns were noted on the nameplates with different-color stickers. --------------------- The 13th, 14th, 15th picks – and still Stratton was on the board. So were a few other players we liked a lot. "Can you get up Stratton’s last outing?’ I asked Yeshayah. Ed: Hmm... This lends credence to the idea that Panik was a semi-panic pick last year because the pitchers they wanted got taken in the slots right before they picked. If they were targetting and double-checking those 2-3 prep pitchers right before last year's pick, and did a similar process, then they might've been thrown for a last minute loop.
