In 2009 and 2010, the Washington Nationals had the top picks in the MLB draft. In both years there was a clear cut number one overall pick, in Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper, respectively. In 2009, Strasburg was easily one of the most hyped draft picks ever. He signed for a record deal of $15.1 million, and everyone knew that he was going to be picked number one. In 2010, Harper was signed to a 5 year, $9.9 million contract. Before the draft even happened, the Nationals announced they were taking Harper. Unlike 2009 and 2010, the 2011 draft does not have a definite number one draft pick.
