2016 MLB Draft Review Index

Or, alternatively and with apologies to David Foster Wallace, my own version of A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again…

Though it put me a little bit behind schedule when it comes to 2017 MLB Draft prep (fresh content there coming soon!), finally accomplishing a goal I’ve had going all the way back to when I first started this site in 2009 (!) was well worth it. Here is the complete list of every team’s 2016 MLB Draft review. Every single player signed to a pro contract out of the 1216 young men drafted this past June is included. I don’t know exactly how many players that wound up being and Google doesn’t seem to have an easy answer, but I can say with a high degree of certainty that it sure felt like a heck of a lot. The final damage by the numbers…

30 teams
95 days
249 pages
200,015 words

That’s twice as many words as both To Kill a Mockingbird and The Hobbit. More than The Great Gatsby, The Scarlet Letter, and Brave New World combined. Longer than The Corrections, Jane Eyre, and Great Expectations. Only one of the Harry Potter books (Order of the Phoenix) beats it. It’s a lot of words.

So here they are if you missed any the first time through. Now I’m off to take a nap, catch up on a few non-baseball real life obligations (if anybody has a crib recommendation, I’m all ears), and finish updating my 2017 MLB Draft database. There are only 146 days until the Twins will be making the first pick, after all…

    Can’t wait to see some 2017 content coming, I keep checking every day or two now that the college season has begun.

    Thanks for all the incredible work you do, Rob. Looking forward to 2017 MLB draft content soon.

    • Rob Ozga says:

      It’s my pleasure, honestly. Love that people are into it. 2017 content is finally ready to roll out, slowly but surely. Hopefully it’s the last time for a bit that the Phils are picking so high…though I guess one more early first round pick in ’18 wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world, either.
