Q. Cool article by Spectator, positing that six big draft picks won the Giants a World Series. Does the mainframe agree with this?
A. Agree 100% that these Giants are a super useful template for Jack Zduriencik's own roster.
A. Agree 95% with the observation that 5-6 golden boys, and a pedestrian 20 players, can win the World Series. I might even quibble that maybe Jonathan Sanchez, and certainly Brian Wilson, were not key ingredients -- reducing the number of golden boys needed to about 4, maybe 4.5.
