My entire childhood was spent watching the Mets finishing low in the standings and having good draft picks. And they managed to never be very good. The problem is the MLB amateur draft is a crap shoot.
It all depends on who is doing the picking.
Frank Cashen was very good at building a farm system under the Mets, and it worked very well.
Sure it is somewhat a crapshoot, but if you have an approach, you can make it less risky.
