Baseball America graded every team’s last 4 drafts. FutureSox normalized the grades to the money a team spent in those drafts:

Team Original Budget Original GPA New Budget New GPA
Chicago White Sox $3m 2.38 $5.04m 4.00
Cleveland Indians $5.1m 2.00 $5.04m 1.98
Detroit Tigers $5.2m 3.25 $5.04m 3.15
Kansas City Royals $7.4m 2.38 $5.04m 1.62
Minnesota Twins $4.5m 3.00 $5.04m 3.36

Wouldn’t it be nice if the Sox draft spending was in “normal” levels? Of course if by spending $3m you get a 2.38 grade, that doesn’t mean if you spend $5 million you’ll get a 4.oo grade. The “extra” prospects may become busts.
