(Captip to the Crawfish Boxes for the link):
A couple of weeks ago at MLB Bonus Baby, they took a stab at ranking the 30 Scouting Directors. Because you can only obsess over Spring Training games for so long...
So Bobby Heck ranked 15th (low, methinks):
Heck has spearheaded a new way of drafting with the Astros, a team that would have been dead last in my rankings two years ago. He’s moving up this list quickly, and I like his unique system of finding live arms through private workouts. He needs to work on finding solid hitters, but with a couple more successful drafts, he could be the best drafter for arms beyond the first round.
Heck will be a GM one day, I just hope it's about five years from now.
