Enough of the Josh Fields type players that are butchers in the field and have an unremarkable strikeout/walk ratio.
Yeah I agree completely. From this point forward we should only draft position players that can play very good defense, walk, don't strike out a lot, and hit a ton. Why haven't we done this from the beginning?

BTW I don't like sending some of the better pitching prospects to the AFL for the extra work. I'd rather send them home to get their work done. Send the Wes Whislers and the like instead.
