2019 MLB Draft, Marlins pick 4th, select OF JJ Bleday

Recommended Posts

Dear Management,

Don’t turn today’s Easter egg hunt into a butt-f***-a-thon.  Pick the player most likely to have a positive impact on the team in 2021/2022.  

 

Thanks

I have never agreed with you more than I do at this moment.

Abrams would not be a bad pick. Bleday would not be a bad pick. Vaughn would not be a bad pick. Greene, I'd be really disapointed, but also probably wouldn't be a bad pick. 

Bishop would probably a bad pick. But with the second pick it'd be awesome.

seriously if its not vaughn, bleday or abrams....

 

marlins are fucking idiots

Ignore the fact that the Marlins have drafted 21 high schoolers and 11 collegiate players which puts the success rate at about the same. Also, the average draft spot of the players is different with Kotsay and Johnson coming at 9th and 28th overall respectively, and Gonzalez, Beckett, Yelich, and Jose Fernandez were picked 2nd, 1st, 23rd, and 14th overall respectively.

If you average the War totals for the players who have retired then it is 38.9 WAR for High School (1.5 average draft pick) and 21.95 for College (18.5 average draft pick). If you add in Yelich and suppose he is only half done accruing WAR and gets to 60 overall, then it is 46 WAR for the High School picks (8.7 average draft pick). I would be willing to say that the draft position had a bigger effect than the schooling level of the player.

Plus I believe that WAR is capped at 1000 per season between all MLB players. That means that you are looking at Johnson's and Kotsay's numbers in the steroid era. If they were not using, then I would expect their WAR numbers would be better if no one was using.
