While that pick sucked, no one after him was really special. The best players are Ian Kennedy and Hank Conger.

 

Also, we got Andrew Miller and Sinkbeil from that draft. That hurts.

 

Yeah that Coghlan pick sucked and Miller was acquired in a trade

 

How did the Coghlan pick suck? And I know we acquired him in a trade. I'm stating the fact that the 2006 draft gave us to very bad pitchers when we thought otherwise. At least, I thought otherwise.

I took it as the Marlins didn't draft anyone good in that draft., obviously Cogs is good! As a footnote the Marlins also got in that draft Ozzie Martinez, Cousins and Sanabia and a few others that have played in the majors most of them with Sinkbeil like stats and not that it matters now, but Sinkbeil was always good at signing for me and polite about it.

lol, no I just meant Sinkbeil and the players picked after him in the first round were not very good. Nothing special about the bottom half of the first round.

He actually does have a degree, I think, but the transition back into real life can't be that easy (assuming he doesn't get picked up by another team).

 

It's hard to feel sorry for him though. He got a $1.5 million signing bonus and MILB salaries are pretty lucrative.

It's not like he can't go back to school. He's 25.

 

Never too late to go back. In my history class at my college [community college], there's some people in there that are in their 50s and 60s.

They're probably there though so they can say "I remember when that happened!"

Decidedly not lucrative. Livable? Certainly. But I make as much as a AA player does working as a temp for a newspaper.

Did he get the league minimum for being on the 40 man roster? If so that's $400K a year, right? Even if not, as someone mentioned, $1.5 million in 2006 is not too shabby. Too bad the team can't ask for some of it back...

 

 

Send Stanton round to Sinkbeil's house with a bat wrapped in barbed wire....
