In watching the first round of the 2012 MLB draft, there were some picks that made me want to write certain franchises and ask why their respective GMs were still on the payroll. Last I checked, the goal in drafting was to pick the best player available, and tonight, some teams seemed to do the exact opposite of that.
For example, the best men on the big board appeared to be Stanford pitcher Mark Appel and high school outfielder Byron Buxton. The latter ended up going second, while Appel slipped to eighth.
Needless to say, I've taken a look at five prospects taken in Round 1 and have no problem in saying that in a few years from now, those who picked them will wish they had made different choices.
