With the MLB Draft this week, it’s fun to look back at the some of the best picks over the past 50 years of the draft. Here’s the best selection at each of the first 40 positions in the draft.
1 Ken Griffey Jr., Seattle, 1987
Certainly there are numerous No. 1 overall selections worthy of being named the best. But I’ll take Griffey over Chipper Jones, Alex Rodriguez and David Price.
Best of the 2000s: David Price, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, 2007
