Man, these two guys don't need to be in our top ten, Speed only and Power only, both right handers, bleh. I didn't mind the Nash signing as much but I thought way to high could of got him lower in the draft. I hated the DeShields pick from the get go, that was one of the dumbest picks we ever did. He is a person you pickup in round 3 or later, and if he is not there big deal. We have so many holes to fill a speedy 2b in the first round, not to mention top 15 pick is so freaking stupid. We had a lot better options.

8. Delino DeShields, Jr
10. Telvin Nash

Remember when Bobby Heck was considered a scouting genius? It seems like only yesterday.

Out of the top 7 players, only Springer was drafted by Heck. After four drafts, this looks really bad for Heck.
