2010 MLB Draft

This year’s draft was highlighted by both Bryce Harper who was drafted at just 17-years-old and Manny Machado, drafted at 18-years-old. As the years continue to go by, it hurts more and more knowing the Giants could have two of the young studly Mets pitchers that let them to the 2015 World Series. Again, it is part of the game, but imagine a Bumgarner, Jacob deGrom, and Noah Syndergaard rotation.

As for San Francisco, it is still early to label anybody as busts, as they drafted Jarrett Parker out of Virginia, Adam Duvall who was used in the trade for Marlon Byrd, and the manager’s son, Brett Bochy.
