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|
|Kansas City Royals||$7.4m||2.38||$5.04m||1.62|
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.
