  1. Marc, agreed on the clear draft skills of the organization. Everyone that says it’s easy to have a great farm system when you draft in the top 5 every year needs to be pointed to the Pittsburgh Pirates as Exhibit A that it isn’t actually that easy. Tampa does an especially good job of finding mid-late round players like Moore and Jennings that turn into big finds.

  2. Exactly. I brought this up after the Rays JV team column was posted, but the contributions Tampa gets from players drafted after the first round or that were acquired in shrewd deals are often overlooked. Everybody points to Upton and Longoria, but what about the other seven positions and the rotation?

  3. Marc, I love this series. It’s literally the *pefect* length. Not too short, not too long, takes about a minute to read — golden!

    Just think, you only need about 100 people to read the article to hit the break-even point where time spent reading is equal to time spent writing. Depressing, eh?

    Anyways, love the articles.
