The Red Sox had 23 picks. 13/23 were supplemental picks. None of the Red Sox picks were higher than 17. The Cubs had 10 picks, 2 of which were supplemental first rounders. 3/10 Cubs picks were top 10. The Cubs should have a better success rate.
All of the Cubs picks that are producing WAR were taken under Wilken. It came out that Wilken wanter Wieters/Parker instead of Vitters. I'm thinking most Cubs fans would agree with that. Wieters was shot down because of $, Parker because he was a HS arm. Colvin/Simpson were WTF picks at the time. I have a really hard believing that Wilken thought they were the best picks and that $ didn't come into play here. Cashner/Jackson were guys that were decent risks for where they were drafted though.
I just can't fathom that somebody can look at the Cubs drafts from 2002 on and be happy with them.
