The frustrating thing about this is the organization is not asking "is there a better way?" and continue to waste pick after pick in the process.
Everyone's excited about Gio Gonzalez, I can't remember the last high school pitcher that this group has developed, Baldwin maybe? Before that who knows. If you can't develop pitchers, let other teams develop them for you and concentrate on position players.
