    Via John Manuel -

    …but in the draft era, [Frank] Thomas is just the 10th college alumnus to earn a spot in Cooperstown.

    Just ten since 1965? I find that amazing.  Does that say something about the benefits of going pro out of High School?

      I think it says a lot about scouting and the development of players. Its pretty clear that most of the best players are seen before they get to college and offered big bucks to skip college and sign. Its a huge risk if you are a high end talent to go to college instead of signing due to the injury risk and money that is at stake.

      @ Evan3457:
      I wonder if Frank Thomas spells “judgment” with one ‘e,’ or two?
