History of Number One Draft Picks
After Going 5 - 1 in Rookie Ball and posting a 3.03 ERA, sonofthebear is working this Starting Pitcher up one grade at a time and he should be ready for the show in a few short seasons. Now in Low A and right on track in terms of progress, look for this fellow to dominate, with his already Major League Slider, soon.
Season 12 No 1 Pick by the San Diego Cats
Albie should have been dusty1one1's Ace in the Hole, but at the tender age of twenty, he is already being asked to carry a heavy load for the Major League Club. Sporting numbers that belay his true talent, hopefully he will grow a bit more into the role that has been thrust upon him.
Season 11 No 1 Pick by the San Francisco Seals
Josh has already posted 44 Minor League victories and a solid career 3.69 ERA, and is currently setteling into a very impressive year in AAA this season. Should be ready to anchor a fairly impressive staff once sonofthebear circles all of his wagons.
Season 9 No 1 Pick by the Huntington Highlanders
The highlanders became the Houston Cowboys and traded off our boy to Florida in Season 10, where he has grown into a very successful Starting Pitcher. Coming up in Season 12 and boasting an impressive 13 - 1 mark, Buddy is ready to take on all comers.
Season 8 No 1 Draft Pick by the Pawtucket Padres
Already pitching in the Majors before Pawtucket became Toledo, Britt was rushed up in Season 9, and cooled his heels for a while in Season 10 to help his development out a bit. He is turning out to be a solid No. 2 Starter and should continue to contribute for many seasons to come.
