Thunder draft picks – the good, bad & the ugly
The collection of players drafted by the Tigers, Red Sox and Yankees who have played for the Thunder since 1994 has been a mixed bag of studs, duds and just about everything in between.
Our list of top picks and total busts are here, but for the expanded feature you’ll need to check out today’s Times of Trenton or click here.
First-round capsules for the Yankees, Mets and Phillies are posted here on BareBones, and the few of you still reading newspapers we’ll break down the Yankees’ top selection of upstate New York high school shortstop Christopher “Cito” Culver” in The Times tomorrow.
