Where are the excuses?
My method was merely to determine how good/bad Howson's drafting was relative to the league average. It turns out to be average. No excuses.

And if there are 100 busts in a row in a draft, as in the scenario you propose, then all GM's are equally culpable.

I have no problem, BTW, with Howson being let go. He didn't build a winner. But I do have a problem with people making unresearched claims that Howson is an awful drafter. Its not a surprise that people are thinking like that, after all the Blue Jackets have been terrible for a long time, and something must have gone wrong. But this place reads like a lynch mob sometimes. Claims need to be researched.
