Agreed, Sale has produced more than almost every pick of the past 12 years. You have to go back to 2004 to find a player (Gio) that has had that much impact in MLB. When you look back at past #1 picks of this century (including sandwich)....

2012 - Courtney Hawkins
2012 - Keon Barnum (s)
2011 - Keenyn Walker (s)
2010 - Chris Sale
2009 - Jared Mitchell
2009 - Josh Phegley (s)
2008 - Gordon Beckham
2007 - Aaron Poreda
2006 - Kyle McCulloch
2005 - Lance Broadway
2004 - Josh Fields
2004 - Tyler Lumsden (s)
2004 - Gio Gonzalez (s)
2003 - Brian Anderson
2002 - Royce Ring
2001 - Kris Honel
2001 - Wyatt Allen (s)

That's a whole lot of nothin' from 2001 to 2007.
