    Your Study

    If you remove the obvious outliers like Clemons and Mussina, you can see the correlation between draft positon and value. Another factor you might want to control for is "signing bonus" because historically in the MLB draft some of the higher end prospects were pushed down the draft list because of signability.

    For the Twins, it is obvious at #2 that they should take the best college pitcher.

    The newest ESPN Insider draft article suggests that Appel is back in the #1 conversation. Expect this to change a few dozen more times before the draft.

    That's why it's best for us not to pay too much attention... It's easy for me to say "I'd lean toward Zimmer." But I don't know. Ha!
