Something to peruse this morning

Via the Baseball Reference blog, here's a link to the 1992 expansion draft, when the Marlins and Rockies got their pick of anyone not included on a 40-man roster. Even before the team had played a single game, the front office was already exhibiting its scouting acumen, as the Marlins selected Trevor Hoffman (who was later traded for Gary Sheffield), Carl Everett, and Jeff Conine in the draft. The Marlins' scouting team wasn't perfect, though. First pick Nigel Wilson amassed only 36 career plate appearances in the big leagues, 16 of which came for the Fish. Can't win them all...
