I was cataloguing some minor league cards before I put them away when I realized what a large bust Ralph Henriquez has actually been.

From there, it wasn't long before my curiosity took over and I made this:

Where We Stand With The '05 Draft
Round Player Position AVG/OBP/SLG/OPS, ERA/WHIP/K9 in 2007 Comments
1 Brian Bogusevic P 4.61 1.55 7.01,

Lefties take longer?

  at High A Salem
Ended year in June with elbow injury

  at A Lexington
Worst second-round pick this century
3 Thomas Manzella SS .264 .324 .339 .663

4 Josh Flores OF .279.345 .422 .767

That switch to catcher previously dismissed still might make it work for him
