The 2006 Draft and Our Current Dearth of Quality Pitching


Part post/part vent.
How the fark did the Royals pick Luke Hochevar with the #1 pick in 2006 with all these other amazing players available. I know, I know it's a crapshoot but c'mon, why do we always miss on pitchers? Greinke the exception* post depression.

Evan Longoria? Pass. Brandon Morrow? Pass. Clayton Kershaw? Pass. Tim Lincecum? Pass. Max Scherzer? Pass. Ian Kennedy? Pass.
