Late round picks can be nice surprises but shouldn't be counted on.

Oh no doubt it would be a lightning in a bottle success if he ever became a good major league player and we should hardly be penciling him in for anything. I was just pointing out that saying a player drafted that late has never made it to the majors is not correct even if it's extremely rare.

What is the outlook for Luis Gonzalez? He seems to be off to a great start this year at Kanny. He was our 3rd round pick last spring.
