At Least The Dodgers Don't Have These Problems
Thanks to Waiting For Boof for this San Francisco Chronicle story including the following quote from Jack Hiatt, director of player development for the Giants:
[Baseball America's] credibility isn't worth a damn to me," he said. "I don't know what they use for a formula to decide what's a good organization and what isn't. Detroit was their No. 1 organization for three straight years, and obviously Detroit was getting an opportunity to draft at an excellent spot. However, none of those people have helped them win any games. So how do you feel about that organization being No. 1 now?As WFB points out, BA has not given Detroit any such ranking; they've pretty consistently fallen, despite their high draft picks, into the middle of the pack. Whatever public utterances Logan White is liable to make -- and he doesn't say that much, come to think of it -- you won't hear him saying anything this certifiably dumb.
