If I'm not mistaken, the last time the Sox had the #1 overall draft pick, they drafted Harold Baines with that pick.

But, it sounds like you are referring to the 1971 #1 pick:

Ugh. That looks like a brutal pick.

You're right... I should have prefaced the similarity to the 70 Sox in reference to that post... It was a brutal pick...

Even moreso because Goodwin didn't even sign with the Sox, he went to college instead and wound up getting picked first overall by the Angels again in 1975 which is where he launched his remarkably unspectacular career.
