BEST DRAFT

Braves. Never mind that they didn’t get much out of the first 10 rounds. They more than made up for it by selecting Kevin Millwood (11), Jermaine Dye (17) and John Rocker (18) in the next 10.

WORST DRAFT

Yankees. This Yankees crop has produced just two big leaguers so far–Mike Jerzembeck (5), who pitched in three games, and Frank Lankford (17), who worked in 12 games (with the Dodgers).

MOST ASTUTE PICK

Scott Rolen, 3b, Phillies (2)

BIGGEST OVERSIGHT

Kevin Millwood, rhp, Braves (11)

BIGGEST FIRST-ROUND BUST

Matt Brunson, ss, Tigers (9th pick)
