If beating the Yankees meant the difference between the 1st pick and the 30th pick, I would gladly tale the 30th pick.

I wouldn't go that far, but I'd have been happy to have won this series. Tanking does take the sting out of losing though.

If I had faith they would get the pick right, maybe.

They drafted well in 2017, 2015 and scored with Conforto in 2014. 2016 they probably missed on Dunn. Overall I think they have a solid drafting record recently. Less good 2011-2013.

Drafting Nimmo and Checchini with back to back #1's will end up haunting the team for a long time

Plenty of time for one or both to become productive MLers but they'll need a chance to play. Do you think this team is too good to give young kids a shot to play right now?

Their first couple of drafts were misfires.

Against a bad LHP tonight, Cecchini better get the start at 2B and Lagares should be in CF.

A lot of rain in the forecast. Seems likely they will play 2 either tmrw or Sunday.
