In three cities, an essential draft
Editor's note: With the 2010 MLB draft approaching rapidly, take a look at these two key resources -- the full order of picks from No. 1 to No. 145 and the beginnings of the player card collections. You can also find Keith Law's most recent top 100 right here.
Considering some of the recent and quick-return style success of high draft picks over the past four years -- Tim Lincecum, Mike Leake, Matt Wieters, David Price and Evan Longoria, among others -- clubs can turn around their fortunes, or jump to the next level of competition as a result of sound drafting.
Keith Law's Organizational Rankings from this past winter includes a rundown of which farm systems are strongest, and which are weakest. Judging by the organizational rankings, there is a handful if clubs that could use a strong draft more than the rest of the league.
Pretty good analysis after the jump. Plus: a discussion of the value of big-time postseason performance as it affects draft stock. Plus: notes from prospects on Sunday. Get after all of it with ESPN Insider.
