Scott Rauenzahn : MLB, not NBA, has it right to develop young talent Philly.com has this right, sort of. MLB has the ONLY true minor league system in sports. The MLB draft is a bit of a joke, I agree, largely because nearly every player, even the best (think Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper,) have no immediate impact on the team and, after the tenth round, these guys are largely "organizational fillers." And by "organizational filler," I mean playing in the Rookie, Gulf Coast League, for less than $500 a month for three months, only to be given your walking papers at the end of August. Sure, there are exceptions. Domonic Brown, 20th round pick by the Phillies. Mike Piazza, a 62nd round pic. But those examples are far and few between.
