Tim Stauffer: A Case Study in Organizational Patience 

Anyone who has followed baseball, even in a passing fashion, for any time at all knows scouting, drafting and player development are practices rather than science. History is littered with former top draft picks who for one reason or another, never panned out as anticipated. The Padres have had their fair share of draft pick misses; Matt Bush for example, comes to the top of my mind. Last year, it seemed as if the name of Tim Stauffer might join that less than distinguished list of drafting/development failures.



About the author: Glen Miller

Life-long baseball and Padres fan who attended his first Friar games way back in 1983. I've been a contributor on Friarhood for more than two years and enjoy talking baseball with the knowledgeable fans that frequent the site. Prior to my beginning here I owned and operated my own San Diego sports site while writing for several other sites focusing specifically on hockey. When not watching, reading or writing about sports I might be sleeping or perhaps spending time with my family since I have few other hobbies. I did recently try my hand at golf and am a pretty good pool player to boot.
