In 2007, the Rays selected David Price with the first pick in that year’s draft. Selecting Price as the top overall draft pick was probably not a difficult selection for Tampa Bay; the earned Price because of their 61-101 record the season before. Yes, Price had to spend some time in the minors, but in effect he was a finished product, both a polished college pitcher and a pitcher with incredible upside. If every other club in baseball had the top overall pick that year, at least 25 of them would have picked Price.
Tampa Bay also selected in that same draft a high school pitcher out of New Mexico named Matt Moore. From what I can tell he didn’t fall because of signing demands, and ended up signing with Tampa Bay for $115,000, a bonus in line with players drafted around him.
