Dustin Ackley's struggles highlight drawbacks of sabermetrics


The story of former college standout Dustin Ackley stands as the most recent warning of the fickle nature of the MLB draft. Ackley was a great hitter at North Carolina (hitting .402, .417 and .417 in his three seasons) and the number two overall pick of the 2009 draft, but merely a good hitter in the minors (.280) and then such a bad hitter in the majors that the Mariners recently demoted him to Triple A.
