This from Bryan Smith over at Fangraphs. He tends to confirm my biases, which are that the Pirates and St. Louis both had very good drafts. Chicago's was "undeniably strange." The Cubs signed only three players for more than $350,000, and his take was that it was a better draft than Milwaukee's. The Cubs spent $1 million for a short, D II righthander who,
delivers 91-93 mph fastballs that peak at 96. His fastball is fairly straight and he tends to pitch up in the zone, which could lead to difficulty with tougher competition.
The Brewers did not sign their first round choice, and appeared to make no gambles in later rounds. In my eyes the Reds' draft is suspect. I'm not a fan of their first rounder, but they did try to sign some significant talent in the later rounds.
